Workers on Monday vented natural gas from a metering and regulating station on Glen Eden Road in Cranberry, township officials said Tuesday.

A statement from Dominion Transmission posted on the township's website said that no residents were in danger during the venting. Residents reported the odor of natural gas.

To allow for welding and other routine repairs, the company said, it vented a “small amount of natural gas” from the facility. The company said that the natural gas would dissipate safely. It could vent more gas as repairs continue through June 13.

“Local residents may smell additional odors during the installation of new equipment, but again, should not be concerned. The work is being performed by well-qualified (Dominion) personnel. The natural gas odor will continue to dissipate and become less noticeable as it continues to mix with the atmosphere while moving downwind,” the company said in the statement.
