Gas Leaks and Blowouts

Natural gas pipelines run like a web underneath California’s streets, creating a persistent threat of natural gas leaks. It is of utmost importance that gas utilities and regulators of such utilities work to identify and repair broken gas pipelines. This will help to prevent catastrophic disasters such as gas well blowouts, which can ruin people’s health and lives, and contribute to climate change through leaked natural gas.

THE ALISO CANYON GAS WELL BLOWOUT

The negligence of Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) caused the Aliso Canyon gas well blowout, the largest gas leak in United States history. An estimated 100,000 tons of natural gas was released from this well blowout, which was 220 times greater than the volume of oil released during the B.P. oil spill. This resulted in an estimated 3,000 to 5,000 people being relocated to homes and hotels outside of the Porter Ranch, CA area where the gas leak occurred.

Representing Thousands

PARRIS represents thousands of these Porter Ranch victims, both residents and business owners. They have suffered nosebleeds, headaches, hives, respiratory illnesses, nausea, dizziness, and long-term exposure to methane, benzene, and formaldehyde. This gas well blowout could have been prevented or slowed had SoCalGas not removed a safety valve from the broken well. It was even reported that dozens of pets were killed or became ill in Porter Ranch.

Additionally, nearly thirty brave firefighters who protected the Porter Ranch residents during the Aliso Canyon gas well blowout filed a class action lawsuit against SoCalGas for knowingly exposing them to hazardous levels of toxins, causing them chronic, and often permanent, illness and injury. These firefighters are also represented by PARRIS Law Firm.

A September 2016 plea agreement between the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office and SoCalGas allowed SoCalGas to pay a $75,000 fine and enter a no contest plea to a misdemeanor charge of failing to timely report this release of hazardous materials from the Aliso Canyon Gas Storage Facility.

This plea deal has hobbled the victims’ abilities to seek restitution and essentially strips the victims of their California constitutional right to be paid for damages before any government agency.
