Aliso Canyon Natural Gas Storage Facility – Meeting High Energy Demand in Summer Months

The Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility located in Porter Ranch is a critical fuel supply repository and resource owned and operated by the Southern California Gas Company.  The facility is a significant source for acquiring natural gas that is used by and critical to many utilities to power their electrical generators and thus produce electricity for the greater Los Angeles basin. The supply is needed to reliably meet high energy demand in the summer months. Aliso Canyon is the only gas storage facility that can immediately respond to potentially rapid changes in gas supply demand for the 17 gas-fired generating plants operating within the greater Los Angeles area. Due to the natural gas leak that was discovered in October of 2015, the remedial work to fix the leak and subsequent safety testing, the gas storage units have ceased operation and the facility is no longer taking on new gas injections/storage with supplies drawn down to just 15 billion cubic feet of gas. This situation is expected to last through the summer and beyond as all 114 wells at the site must be inspected and documented as a first step in determining the future use of this facility. 

As such Glendale Water & Power along with the other area utilities is expecting to encounter gas shortages during the peak summer months creating a possible challenge in providing our customers with reliable electricity this summer.  In light of the fact that electrical utilities are considered to be “non-core” customers by SoCalGas these utilities will be the first to face a reduction in gas deliveries due to higher demand and limited gas resources.  As mentioned this isn’t just a GWP issue–it is a Southern California issue. The unavailability of this gas supply may cause electrical service interruptions to our customers and other power customers in the Southern California. GWP has a strong record of providing reliable power and will do everything possible to reduce and avoid service interruptions. The power system is designed with generation and transmission redundancy, allowing us to avoid electric service interruptions due to an energy shortage or system equipment failure, except under the most extreme conditions. Even during the energy crisis in the early 2000s, GWP secured enough energy to meet customer needs. With that being said, it is pertinent in this gas shortage situation to be on alert, and when the need comes to conserve in order to avoid possible outages.
