Railroad Commission Chairman Victor Carillo told natural gas operators to inspect their systems and fix any leaks to protect themselves against an “environment of heightened awareness and often false accusations.”
Go ahead, Big Gas, fix those leaks that you are falsely accused of having so you can protect yourselves against those lunatic citizens who think they have to breathe.
“I’m urging operators to get out there and make sure they double check their operations. If a valve is leaking, fix it; if a thief hatch is open, close it. Don’t wait for us to come inspect the facility and require you to fix the problem,” Carillo said
