Lurking below the surface of the Ballona Wetland is 7 to 8 Billion Cubic Feet of Natural Gas that SoCalGas (Sempra Energy) imports from Texas, Oklahoma and other areas.
The circumstances are very similar to Porter Ranch. Past History shows leaking oil wells have provided a pathway for these gases to migrate to the surface.
Before she retired in 2014, Anneliese Anderle was a field engineer for the Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermic Resources, which regulates oil drilling. She worked out of offices in Bakersfield, Cypress and Ventura, and for a while she was responsible for monitoring the massive natural gas storage field at Aliso Canyon.
Southern California Gas owns the facility, which distributes gas to 14 power plants and 21 million customers. In her years monitoring wells at Aliso Canyon, Anderle says she got to know the gas company as "a first-class operation."
