Gas leaks at PG&E storage fields
Only one of the dozen underground gas storage facilities in California had no leaking gas wells or fixtures, according to tests ordered after the blowout of a well in southern California.
The 229 leaks reported by the California Public Utilities Commission on Tuesday included 84 in fields operated by PG&E;, including eight that were considered a safety hazard. The company told regulators it had fixed most of those, including six of the hazardous leaks. The remaining two hazardous leaks were no longer emitting gas, the company said.
