Oct 10 Southern California Gas Co is waiting for
final safety test results from fewer than 10 wells at its Aliso
Canyon natural gas storage facility in Los Angeles before state
agencies can allow the company to inject fuel into the field,
according to a report posted Monday.
SoCalGas shut Aliso Canyon in October 2015 due to a massive
methane leak that was not plugged until February.
Under state law, the gas utility cannot inject fuel into the
field until the California Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal
Resources (DOGGR) approves the company’s testing of the 114

SoCalGas is owned by California energy company Sempra Energy

It supplies gas to homes and businesses in Southern California,
including power plants and refineries.
