Controversial Weymouth compressor station releases 11,000 standard cubic feed of natural gas into air
The gas venting occurred during planned maintenance, according to reports.
The station, owned by Canadian-based Enbridge, is in the crosshairs of politicians following several unplanned gas releases and a targeted campaign by concerned neighbors attempting to bar the plant’s operations. A federal commission is currently reviewing the facility’s permit.
Another gas release happened on April 6 and two previous unplanned gas releases happened at the facility last fall.
Herald wire services contributed to this report.
