Gas Leak LAWSUITS
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.
