Thursday: PG&E Venting Natural Gas Line in Oakley


PG&E announced Wednesday afternoon that as part of the ongoing improvements to a natural gas system, PG&E plans to vent natural gas from sections of a pipe in Oakley.

PG&E plans to vent natural gas from sections of a pipe in Oakley on Thursday, November 8 from approximately midnight until approximately 3:00 a.m. As gas is vented at 5900 Bridgehead Road, the smell of natural gas and the sound of it venting from the pipe may be noticeable in the area, depending on wind direction. The natural gas will quickly dissipate into the atmosphere and will not be harmful.

Additional work will be taking place later on Thursday, and while there won’t be noise, there may be some odor of gas.

Safety is always our top priority, and we encourage anyone who has concerns about natural gas odors in or around their home or business to call us at 1-800-743-5000 so we can safely determine the specific cause. Service to customers should not be interrupted during this work.

This gas safety work is part of our everyday commitment to provide safe, reliable and affordable natural gas service to our customers said PG&E.
