To increase capacity and serve additional demand for affordable and reliable energy, Enbridge Gas is proposing to increase the capacity of our Panhandle Transmission System, which serves residential, commercial, industrial, greenhouse, and power generation customers in the municipalities of Chatham-Kent, Windsor, County of Essex, Lakeshore, Leamington, Kingsville, Essex, Amherstburg, LaSalle and Tecumseh.

This project is subject to Ontario Energy Board (OEB) approval. If approved, construction could begin in early 2023 and be complete by the end of 2023.

Panhandle Reinforcement: Construction of approximately 23 km of new pipeline, looping the existing 20-inch Panhandle Pipeline. The new pipeline will be up to 42 inches in diameter and located adjacent to an existing pipeline corridor between the Comber and Dover Transmission Stations.

Leamington Interconnect: Construction of a new 16-inch pipeline, adjacent to or within existing road rights-of way, on public or private property. This will connect the Leamington North Line to both the Kingsville East Line and Leamington North Reinforcement Line and be approximately 12 km in length.

Wheatley Interconnect: Construction of a new 16-inch pipeline to connect the Tilbury East Valve Site to the Wheatley Road Station, on public and private property, adjacent to or within existing road rights-of-way. The pipeline will be approximately 6 km in length.
