"The California Public Utilities Commission voted unanimously on Thursday in favor of a controversial plan to increase the amount of natural gas that can be stored at the troubled Aliso Canyon facility.
The plan allows for up to 41.16 billion cubic feet of natural gas to be stored at the facility, where a catastrophic 2015 blowout became the largest methane leak in U.S. history.
That amounts to about 60% of capacity — a compromise between the ultimate goal of decommissioning the site entirely and utilizing all 68.6 billion cubic feet of available storage, said Commissioner Martha Guzman Aceves, who proposed the measure.
The facility had been limited to around 34 billion cubic feet — less than half the available space."
