SoCalGas to Start $3.4 Million Project to Replace, Upgrade Valve Station

Southern California Gas Company is planning a $3.4 million valve replacement and upgrade project at its natural gas pipeline valve station in Littlerock located in Los Angeles County.

The project is part of the company’s Pipeline Safety Enhancement Plan, which was created to meet requirements by the California Public Utilities Commission. The project includes installation of a new mainline valve with automatic shut-off and remote control capability. It also includes upgrades to an existing mainline valve.

In efforts to continue enhancing the safety of its 101,000 miles of pipeline in the U.S., SoCalGas plans to spend roughly $1.2 billion in 2016 on various improvement projects.

The Littlerock project is expected to be worked on through February of 2017.
