San Francisco – PG&E issued the following statement today on a press release issued by The Utility Reform Network (TURN) today regarding documents PG&E submitted to the Calilfornia Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in 2007 as part of a general rate case-increase request to fund natural gas pipeline repairs in San Bruno, CA:
PG&E is committed to performing the work necessary to assure the safety of its gas transmission system. Accordingly, PG&E is constantly prioritizing its projects using the most recent up to date information available.
In the CPUC documents referenced by TURN, PG&E did identify this line section as being a high priority project in its 2008 gas transmission rate case filing. Subsequent to that filing PG&E performed an External Corrosion Direct Assessment (ECDA) in 2009 and based on the updated assessment, and the assurance it provided us, we rescheduled the project accordingly.
PG&E spent more on its gas transmission capital program than authorized for the period 2008 to 2009.
The project is scheduled to be completed in November, 2013.
