METHANE LEAK CAPPED

Metro USA (Boston) - - NEWS -

5 An un­der­ground nat­u­ral gas pipe­line rup­ture that caused the largest methane leak ever in Cal­i­for­nia has been per­ma­nently capped, paving the way for thou­sands of dis­placed Los An­ge­les res­i­dents to re­turn home, state reg­u­la­tors said. Of­fi­cials con­firmed that the sub­ter­ranean pipe­line breach at the Aliso Canyon gas stor­age field owned by South­ern Cal­i­for­nia Gas Co. was suc­cess­fully sealed af­ter a se­ries of in­de­pen­dent lab­o­ra­tory tests, Ja­son Mar­shall, chief deputy di­rec­tor of the Cal­i­for­nia Depart­ment of Con­ser­va­tion, told re­porters.
