Los Angeles Daily News By Dana Bartholomew With escalating urgency due to illnesses they link to a natural gas leak above Porter Ranch, hundreds of protesters Saturday demanded closure of the gas field and a shift to renewable energy to help thwart global warming.
As nearly nations reached a landmark consensus on climate change outside Paris, residents from across Los Angeles converged on the Aliso Canyon Storage Facility to make the demands. They live catty-cornered from the protest at the junction of Sesnon Boulevard.
The little one, 2 years old, the night before last was vomiting all night long. My 4-year-old, same thing two weeks before. All complain of headaches, including me and my wife. It followed a Friday rally by parents calling upon the Los Angeles Unified School District to relocate two Porter Ranch elementary schools located just over a mile from the leaking well.
More than 3, residents have left their homes or are now relocating to escape gas odors on the eve of the Christmas holiday. But shutting down a natural gas field critical to fueling 14 power plants across the region and 21 million homes and businesses across Southern California is not an immediate option, gas company officials say.
And even with the increased availability of renewables, a large portion of electricity consumed by Southern California are still produced by power plants fueled by natural gas. The permit process and construction could take between seven and 10 years.
Public health officials, meanwhile, say prolonged exposure to trace chemicals in natural gas leaking in the Santa Susana mountains north of Porter Ranch can cause long-term health effects.
They also say levels found to date were not believed to pose a long-term risk. Mercaptan, a gas additive that smells like rotten eggs to make it detectable, has been blamed for hundreds of complaints of headaches, nosebleeds, stomachaches, rashes and respiratory illness.
As a cold breeze blew off Oat Mountain, where Gas Co. While gas company officials stay comfortable in their homes.
The first phase in drilling a relief well is nearly finished; it will meet the leaking well a mile and a half beneath the mountain. They will then seal the bottom of the well with cement. The drilling continues around the clock and is expected to take three to four months.
The 3, acre Aliso Canyon Storage Facility, the largest of four company underground reservoirs inside depleted oil fields, stores natural gas bought throughout the year from producers from West Texas to the West Coast.
The Aliso field holds enough gas to supply Southern California for more than a month. The long-term storage, according to Mendoza, helps protect a reliable natural gas supply and bolster customers against price spikes.
It is a critical storage facility that Southern Californians depend on for their natural gas service and for their electricity. Most of the gas comes from fracking operations in the Midwest, she said, a nonrenewable resource she said contributes to global climate change.
It also potentially fuels one-third of the billion cubic feet of natural gas consumed in Los Angeles County last year, she said, or 4 percent burned throughout the state. She said it was time Los Angeles galvanized around the Aliso Canyon gas leak and worked to abandon its fossil fuel economy.Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two.
