Southern California Gas Company Pipeline Inspection Project – May Trigger Gas Smell Next Week

Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas®) will be performing an In-Line Inspection (ILI) on a segment of one of our natural gas transmission pipelines. This work is part of our system-wide plan to further enhance the safety of the pipelines.

Below is important information regarding the ILI work that will take place:

Anticipated start date: May 13, 2019

Work hours: Monday – Friday: 6:00am – 6:00pm (Weather and other factors permitting)
Work area: Intersection of Chestnut Avenue and Grand Avenue
Duration of work: Approximately 5 days to complete (Weather and other factors permitting)

What to expect:

  • Full closure of Chestnut Avenue at Grand Avenue
  • SoCalGas construction vehicles and its contractors’ trucks along with heavy equipment
  • During this time you may smell natural gas and hear construction noise

This test involves performing an inline assessment of a high-pressure line, using an inspection tool. This survey is federally mandated per the Pipeline Safety Act of 2002.

At times, you may smell the odor of natural gas; although this is normal when crews are working, we encourage anyone who has concerns about the smell of gas to call SoCalGas from a safe location at 1-800-427-2200. This line is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
