About the Ventura Compressor Modernization Project

Please join us for a series of community open houses to provide information and updates on the Ventura Compressor Station Modernization Project. You are encouraged to attend and learn more about the proposed project, including, recent regulatory changes that require SoCalGas to submit an application for a Certificate for Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to the California Public Utilities Commission prior to beginning the project, compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act, and analysis of alternatives. The community is invited to participate, ask questions, and offer comments.

Relief On The Way

Market prices for natural gas have dropped significantly for SoCalGas core customers (residential and small businesses), when compared to the prices seen in January. While prices in the western region have significantly decreased from the prices seen in January, they remain higher than last year. SoCalGas does not set the price for natural gas. Instead, natural gas prices are determined by national and regional markets. SoCalGas buys natural gas in those markets on behalf of residential and small business customers, and the cost of buying that gas is billed to those customers with no markup. Help is available and there are several bill assistance programs customers can benefit from. For more information on the factors that lead to higher bills and ways we can help, visit
