Aliso Canyon gas leak could be 'controlled' in several days

Aliso Canyon gas leak could be 'controlled' in several days

The leaking gas well in Aliso Canyon could be plugged in the next several days, the Southern California Gas Co. said Tuesday. 

Residents in nearby Porter Ranch can expect to receive text messages and phone calls once a relief well intercepts the failed well and crews are able to pump in fluids to stop the leak.

The state Division of Oil, Gas & Geothermal Resources will then be asked to confirm the well has been plugged, a process that could take as long as a week, said Gillian Wright, vice president of customer service for the gas company.
