Officials cite unplanned venting following Ventura gas leak scare

The venting of a Southern California Gas Co. compressor in Ventura rattled some nearby residents over the past weekend, but utility officials said it was no cause for alarm.

Some residents called officials about the scent of natural gas, suspecting a possible leak from the pressurizing facility.

SoCal gas officials said that while the venting around 3:45 p.m. Friday was “unplanned,” the gas was safely dispersed through a relief vent stack — as the operation is designed to do. 

“Some people in the area may have smelled an odor as the result of this venting,” Christine Detz, a spokesperson for the utility, said in a statement issued Tuesday. “This controlled venting of natural gas was not a threat to public health or safety.”
