Natural gas smells concern citizens; no threat of danger

January 6, 2010 by Lori Cope

Cause for the natural gas smells in Hudson Oaks and Willow Park Wednesday morning were from “a little bit” of the safe chemical mercaptin being leaked into a gas line during a routine maintenance procedure at a Texas Gas Services plant in Hudson Oaks, according a company spokesperson.

Lori Morena with Texas Gas Services said maintenance on an odorant tank was being performed when a bit of the chemical got into the line. Mercaptin is placed into natural gas so it can be detected in case of a leak.

“It’s perfectly safe, and there’s no danger,” she said Wednesday afternoon. “The smell should subside within a few hours.”

Concerns about natural gas smells in Hudson Oaks and Willow Park were abundant Wednesday morning.
A homeowner in the Oakview Estates in Hudson Oaks reported the natural gas smells were inside homes and businesses “from R&K Café to Oakview Estates” and were causing some people to have headaches.

In Willow Park, a public works employee said they were also working to track the smell.

“There’s no danger when it’s outdoors, only when it’s contained in a house or office,” the public works employee said.
