On Apr. 15, 2021, during planned maintenance at SoCalGas’ Honor Rancho storage facility, approximately 100 gallons of oil was inadvertently released onto gravel and concrete surfaces at the property. The release was quickly contained and reported to appropriate regulatory agencies. Clean-up work is complete. There was no risk of harm to public health and safety from the release.

Earlier this morning, SoCalGas crews doing excavation work at the Honor Ranch natural gas storage facility exposed a pipe used to add odorant to the natural gas stored there.  

The odorant line was damaged and a small volume of liquid odorant was briefly released.  No natural gas was released. 

The release has been contained and there is no longer an odor at the facility. 

The odor does not present a health or safety risk to the community.  However, nearby residents may have noticed a natural gas odor earlier this morning.

Natural gas is odorless, and as a safety precaution, a distinctive odor is added to it so most people can easily notice its presence.  

As always, if you smell natural gas and suspect a leak, please call SoCalGas at 1-800-427-2200.

We inspect every home or business that reports an odor complaint to confirm it does not have an unsafe situation, and if we find a problem, we address it.
