      I called geoforward inc and spoke with the main geologist about the Los Angeles city buffer zone map. He actually made me a custom map with borders and plotted the exact location of my clients property on the LA city map. Having the map and then hearing what to do saved us a lot of time.

      The Aliso Canyon Oil Field is north of the Porter Ranch area. The extent of that methane zone (and buffer zone) terminates midway through the residential neighborhoods of Porter Ranch and Granada Hills.

      The other methane zones in the valley are more-related to oil wells in those specific areas.

    What caused the LA Methane Zone in downtown Los Angeles? Do the contaminated soils from nearby properties increase the methane buffer zone?
