PREPARING FOR RESTORATION BALLONA WETLANDS ECOLOGICAL RESERVE
Before she retired in 2014, Anneliese Anderle was a field engineer for the Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermic Resources, which regulates oil drilling. She worked out of offices in Bakersfield, Cypress and Ventura, and for a while she was responsible for monitoring the massive natural gas storage field at Aliso Canyon.
Southern California Gas owns the facility, which distributes gas to 14 power plants and 21 million customers. In her years monitoring wells at Aliso Canyon, Anderle says she got to know the gas company as "a first-class operation."
Not long after plans were laid for the community of Porter Ranch half a century ago, an oil and gas well caught fire less than five miles away.
A company of Texas oil well firefighters stopped the 1968 blaze after six days.
Seven years later, as volunteers planted pines along hillsides of the growing community, the Texans were again on the scene to contain an even more ferocious blowout.
