Gas storage well leak in Pennsylvania spews methane | Ap

A vent at an underground natural gas storage facility in western Pennsylvania has been spewing massive amounts of warming methane into the atmosphere for more than 11 days, and attempts to plug the leak have so far failed.

Owner Equitrans Midstream said the well at its Rager Mountain deposit, located in a rural area about 1.5 hours east of Pittsburgh, is venting about 100 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, according to initial estimates.
