State officials warn that Southern California could face as many as 14 days of scheduled blackouts this summer because of depleted reserves of natural gas caused by the massive leak in Aliso Canyon.
'Although Southern California Gas Co. sealed the Aliso Canyon leak in February, it is prohibited from injecting gas into the reservoir until safety checks are completed on the facility's remaining 114 wells. So far, none of the wells has passed the required tests.
The utility has argued that it should be allowed to resume operations at Aliso Canyon in the interest of “energy reliability.”'
