Southern California Gas has requested regulatory approval to resume natural gas injections at the Aliso Canyon storage facility, nearly one year after a massive leak prompted regulators to ban injections into the underground storage field until the completion of a comprehensive review. The interagency task force, established in response to the incident, has issued recommendations for additional actions to reduce similar incidents in the nation’s 400 plus facilities. The PHMSA is set to issue the first federal standards for underground natural gas storage facilities incorporating the task force recommendations.
