Natural gas odor travels over Orange, Los Angeles County tonight. Everything is under control....

I just left the newsroom of Los Cerritos Community News. The smell of natural gas is all over the air here in the hood. What is it? Mystery solved. Got this note from the city of La Palma" "On Thursday, February 23, 2012 at about 5:00 p.m. Oil companies performed a controlled release of natural gas from the oil platforms off the coast of Sunset Beach. During the gas release, winds coming from the south carried the natural gas odor across several cities, including La Palma. Reports of smelling the order, have lasted for no more than 20 minutes. According the Orange County Fire Authority, this is a standard procedure, which is done frequently from these oil platforms and there are no health risks associated with these procedures." Case closed on this stinky situation.

How does this 'solve it?'. If they were venting NatGas from an offshore platform the gas would likely rise since it's lighter than air. It's also prior to the addition of Mercaptan which provides the odor. It's also noticed in Marina Del Rey and culver city and would have had to been a massive gas release, on the metric ton scale. The conclusion you subscribe to is highly unlikely.
