Hi,

both the versions of the sentece below have been written by me:

According to January 2016 news reports, the NGO ZZZ claims that an uncontained gas leak at a XYZ (= company name) natural gas facility in California, US, has released around 77,000 metric tons of methane since it started in October 2015.

The leak has still not been contained, and the text will be read this month. If I want to emphasise the claim is still valid, can I choose the first version?
