Owen Sound Phase 4 Union Gas Reinforcement Project Notice of Project Update & Additional Information Sessions

Posted On: Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Project Overview: Union Gas is proposing to build up to 36 kilometres of 12-inch diameter natural gas pipeline to meet a growing demand for natural gas in existing communities served by the Owen Sound pipeline system and to meet the future demand for natural gas in other communities to be served by the pipeline system. The pipeline is proposed to be located within the municipal road right-of-way in the Municipality of West Grey and the Township of Chatsworth, in the County of Grey (see map below for revised Preliminary Preferred Pipeline Route). Construction would begin in 2019.

Environmental Report: AECOM Canada Ltd. has been retained by Union Gas to prepare an Environmental Report (ER) to assess the potential environmental and socio-economic effects that may result from the project and outline plans for avoiding and/or mitigating any effects, where possible. The ER will accompany a Leave-to-Construct application that will be submitted to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) in 2018. OEB review and approval is needed to undertake construction.

Purpose of Additional Information Sessions: Two Information Sessions were held in July 2017 to provide an opportunity to interested parties to learn about the project and provide feedback. Two additional Information Sessions are being planned to provide an update about the project including the feedback received to-date from interested parties and how Union Gas plans to address concerns about the project, with a focus on detailed pipeline location and construction mitigation. The format of the information sessions will be drop-in style session, and representatives from Union Gas and AECOM will be in attendance to answer questions.
