SoCalGas stops withdrawing natural gas from Aliso Canyon field

The Los Angeles Daily News reports: A day after withdrawing natural gas from Aliso Canyon storage facility in the northwest San Fernando Valley on Tuesday and early Wednesday – for the first time in a year – the Southern California Gas Co. has cancelled the removal. Recent cold weather had increased demand on natural gas across Southern California, gas company officials said. But at 9 a.m. Wednesday, officials stopped withdrawing. Wednesday’s withdrawal, adhered to the Aliso Canyon Winter Withdrawal Protocol that the California Public Utilities Commission established, officials said. In an earlier statement, officials said conditions on Wednesday morning “continue to put pressure” on the natural gas system. To stop any possible service interruptions or restrictions to large customers and service providers, including refineries, electric generators, hospitals, airports and transit systems, the Aliso Canyon facility was used for the withdrawal. Additionally, officials explained, a system-wide “curtailment watch” for non-core customers issued on Monday with non-core customers possibly receiving a notice to reduce service also remains in force.
