Ontario Gas Transmission Reinforcement Pipeline Project Completed

ONTARIO, Canada —Enbridge Gas has announced that the Kingsville Transmission Reinforcement Pipeline Project in is in service.

The $105.7M project delivers natural gas to Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent and surrounding areas, including the greenhouse market in the Leamington and Kingsville area of Ontario, Canada.

"Our government understands the importance of expanding access to natural gas," said Bill Walker, Associate Minister of Energy. "Access to natural gas can make life more affordable for families, increase job creation and economic opportunities and sends the message that Ontario is open for business."

The project saw construction of a new 19-km (12-mile) natural gas transmission pipeline in the town of Lakeshore and the town of Kingsville in the county of Essex. Construction began earlier this year and the transmission line is now in service.

Project crews will return in mid-2020 to complete final project clean-up activities.

The transmission pipeline was designed, constructed and operated to meet or exceed all applicable safety codes and regulations. Now that construction is complete, the company's ongoing pipeline maintenance program will begin and ensure that the pipeline system continues to operate safely and reliably.

An integral part of this project was an environmental report conducted by an independent consultant, which outlines the steps that Enbridge Gas took to protect the natural environment. During construction an environmental inspector ensured compliance within those measures, environmental permits, approvals, laws, policies and other commitments.
