As you may know, the energy needs of a city grow in proportion to its population. We have identified the strong need to reinforce our natural gas system in the burgeoning region of Ajax, Ontario.

To date, we have identified the preliminary preferred and alternate routes for this project. The preliminary preferred route, shown in red, is comprised on nominal pipe size (NPS) 6, high pressure (HP) steel (ST) natural gas main. The project will tie into the existing extra high pressure (XHP) NPS 16 ST gas main at Taunton Rd and Church St N. A new XHP to HP pressure regulation station will be installed near this intersection. The project will continue for 2.1 km south on Church St N, terminating at Rossland Rd W. Near this intersection, an HP to intermediate pressure (IP) pressure regulation station will be installed. From this station, 450 m of NPS 8, IP polyethylene pipe (PE) will be installed along Rossland Rd W, terminating 120 m east of Harkins Drive, tying into the existing system.

The second alternative will be a NPS 6 HP ST gas main, shown in blue. It will tie into the existing NPS 12 HP steel gas main at Brock Rd and Rossland Rd W. It will run for 1.7 km along Rossland Rd W to Church St N. Near this intersection, an HP to IP station will be installed. From this station, 450 m of NPS 8, IP PE will be installed along Rossland Rd W, terminating 120 m east of Harkins Drive, tying into the existing system.

The third alternative, shown in purple, is a NPS 6 HP steel natural gas main, tying into the existing XHP NPS 16 ST gas main at Taunton Rd and Ravenscroft Rd. A new XHP to HP pressure regulation station will be installed near this intersection. The pipe will continue for 2.15 km along Ravenscroft Rd. At Ravenscroft Rd and Rossland Rd, a new HP to IP pressure regulation station will be installed. From this station, 70 m of NPS 8 IP PE gas main will be installed to connect into the existing system.

All routes will see the pipeline installed in the municipal right of way.
