There is a growing demand for natural gas in rural Chatham-Kent, particularly in the fast-growing greenhouse sector. As a result, Enbridge Gas has expanded our existing natural gas system in the area.
The project, known as the Chatham-Kent Rural Pipeline Expansion, is now complete. It involved constructing:
- A 13-kilometre, 8-inch pipeline taking off from Enbridge Gas' existing Panhandle Natural Gas Transmission System at our Simpson Road Station (west of Tupperville), and proceeding south within the road allowance of Simpson Road to Base Line Road and then east within the road allowance of Base Line Road to the end point in the vicinity of the intersection of Base Line Road and Kent Bridge Road, east of Dresden (Base Line section).
- A new 500-metre, 12-inch diameter pipe near Dover Centre.
