Overview of the activities planned at the SoCalGas compressor station.

Newsletter 28 – November 30, 2023

We remain committed to keeping the Ventura community informed with timely, open, and transparent communications on activities at our facilities. The safety and wellbeing of our community, customers, and employees is paramount to everything we do at SoCalGas.

Soil Remediation

We want to thank the Ventura community for their cooperation throughout our Soil Remediation Project at the Ventura Compressor Station. As of August 31, 2023, we have completed the project. We value the collaboration with the Ventura Unified School District that resulted in the soil remediation taking place over the summer and on weekends when school was not in session.

Update on Ventura Compressor Station Modernization Project

On August 24, 2023, SoCalGas filed an Application for a Certificate for Public Convenience and Necessity (Application), including a Proponent’s Environmental Assessment (PEA) prepared pursuant to California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) General Order 177 for the proposed Ventura Compressor Station Modernization Project. The project proposed in the Application incorporates feedback we received from the community since 2021.

Currently, the CPUC is reviewing the Application. After the CPUC deems the Application complete, the CPUC environmental review process will begin. This process will include public workshops and meetings to provide opportunities for the public to participate during this evaluation by the CPUC. The review could take approximately 18 months or more to complete and the CPUC will provide opportunities to engage the community along the way.

The schedule of regulatory activities will be determined by the CPUC and will be communicated in a future “scoping memorandum and ruling” to be set following a pre-hearing conference to be scheduled by the CPUC.

We continue to encourage community members to participate in the CPUC process in order to provide their input and perspective. The CPUC regulatory and environmental processes will provide those opportunities for community input. SoCalGas will also continue to share relevant information and updates to all of our stakeholders.

Members of the community will continue to see our employees and vehicles at the facility as a normal course of business. The compressor station will continue normal operations delivering safe and reliable utility service.
