Columbia Gas Postpones Natural Gas Venting Project Due to Weather

NECN reported: Less than a week after announcing restoration plans for the Merrimack Valley, Columbia Gas reported that its natural gas venting project will be postponed until Wednesday due to the weather. Columbia Gas was slated to begin the Andover and North Andover project on Tuesday, two Natuweeks after a series of gas explosions and fires that displaced approximately 8,600 residents. The company has been working toward a Nov. 19 deadline to fully restore gas to the affected areas. The venting process is described as a routine procedure to ensure that any residual gas is removed from the gas lines prior to crews beginning work. Venting is expected to occur throughout the restoration process, with gas workers and emergency responders around the area being vented. For more on this story visit or click
