On October 23, 2015, Sempra Energy's subsidiary Southern California Gas Company (“SoCalGas”) discovered a natural gas leak from a well at the Aliso Canyon facility near the Porter Ranch neighborhood in Los Angeles. After local residents reported symptoms including headaches, nausea, and severe nosebleeds, hundreds of families were relocated from the area as SoCalGas attempted to seal the well.

On December 12, 2015, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”), the federal agency that oversees the vast majority of SoCalGas’ pipelines and storage facilities, publicly released a request for information to SoCalGas.

On January 6, 2016, California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency due to the continuing noxious leak.

On February 11, 2016, Southern California Gas Company announced that a relief well had "intercepted the base of the leaking well" and operators were pumping fluids to temporarily keep the gas from leaking. Then on February 18, 2016, the California Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) confirmed that the well that had been leaking at the Southern California Gas Co. Aliso Canyon storage facility had been permanently sealed and taken out of service.

On February 26, 2016, the CEO of Sempra Energy said in a conference call that its cost could reach as high as $330 million for a historic natural gas leak.
