Ventura Modernization Project Newsletter

Overview of the activities planned at the SoCalGas compressor station.

Newsletter No. 11  - December 6, 2021

Community townhall events and themes from public comments

Thank you to those that attended our community town hall meetings and/or provided feedback on our planned project at the Ventura Compressor Station. We had 44 attendees and received close to 150 comments by the close of the public comment period on November 15.

During this process, we heard comments and questions about a variety of topics that centered around:

  • Conducting an environmental impact report
  • The upcoming soil remediation project
  • Operational and safety measures at the facility
  • The compressor station facility’s emissions
  • General support for the planned project

The feedback we received is being considered as we evaluate the feasibility of potential alternatives including technology and alternative sites. This analysis, which is being conducted with the assistance of a third-party consultant, is getting underway now; we expect the work to take a couple of months to complete. Once the analysis is complete, SoCalGas will present the findings to the community as part of a public forum in the first quarter of 2022.



Planned maintenance rescheduled

In our last newsletter, we shared information about planned maintenance work at the Ventura Compressor Station. That work is being postponed until a later date. Nearby residents will be notified when the work is rescheduled and prior to the commencement of maintenance activities.

Last newsletter of 2021

This will be our last scheduled newsletter until early next year. Please note that we will continue to keep you updated on work at the facility in a timely manner. Even though these biweekly newsletters are taking a temporary pause, your questions about the station are welcome at any time and may be submitted to or phone (805) 681-7937.
