The Department of Conservation's Geologic Energy Management Division (CalGEM, formerly DOGGR) ordered that all 114 injection wells be
thoroughly tested for safety and competence before injection resumes into the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage field. CalGEM developed a protocol of six tests in consultation with the Lawrence Livermore and Berkeley National Laboratories. Test results are submitted by Southern California Gas, reviewed by CalGEM staff, and then posted on this page. Wells must pass all tests within one year or be permanently sealed (plugged and abandoned).
Additional Aliso Canyon information: Southern California Gas is also required to file reports on its progress toward completing the safety review on every first and third Friday of the month.
