Enbridge Gas Inc. ("Enbridge") is proposing to construct approximately 7km of Nominal Pipe Size (NPS) 4 inch extra high pressure (XHP) steel natural gas pipeline in the Town of Scugog. The Project originates near Blackstock just west of the intersection of Highway 57 and Highway 7A and Island Road in Port Perry.

A Preliminary Preferred Route (PPR) for the proposed natural gas pipeline has been identified. The PPR is proposed to start just west of the intersection of Highway 57 and Highway 7A in Blackstock, head west along Highway 7A, and terminate near the intersection of Highway 7A and Island Road in Port Perry. Approximately 7 km of Nominal Pipe Size (NPS) 4-inch extra high pressure (XHP) steel pipe will be installed along Highway 7A.

An alternative route is also being considered as part of the study. It comprises two separate pipeline segments; one segment along Scugog Line 14 between Lake Ridge Road and Marsh Hill Road; and one segment along Scugog Line 6/Highway 7A between Highway 7/12 and Island Road. The alternative would require approximately 2.9 km of NPS 8-inch XHP steel pipe along Scugog Line 14; and 2.7 km of NPS 6-inch XHP steel pipe and 3.3 km of NPS 4-inch XHP steel pipe along Scugog Line 6/Highway 7A for a total length of 8.9 km.

The natural gas pipeline will be located mainly within the municipal right-of-way (ROW). The Project will provide the residents and businesses of Scugog Island access to natural gas for the first time.

Leave to Construct Application to OEB
On December 15, 2017, Enbridge filed an application with the OEB for an order a granting leave to construct a natural gas distribution pipeline and ancillary facilities to serve Scugog Island.

Notice of Application
On January 26, 2018 the OEB issued the Notice of Application with respect to the filing by Enbridge for a leave to construct application for approval to construct a natural gas pipeline to serve the community of Fenelon Falls.
