Abandonment funding update

In 2007, the NEB established the Land Matters Consultation Initiative, which addressed abandonment issues relating to NEB regulated pipelines.  To ensure that there are sufficient funds available to abandon pipelines in the future, the NEB determined that companies are required to collect funds and have a mechanism in place to protect those funds.  Enbridge companies such as Niagara Gas Transmission Limited and 2193914 Canada Limited proposed that abandonment funding amounts be collected through tolls and then placed in to a trust that can only be accessed for purposes related to pipeline abandonment.  These proposals were both accepted by the NEB and Niagara and 2193914 have been accumulating abandonment funds since January 2015.  The funds are placed in trust with CIBC Trust Corporation and each year, the companies provide the NEB with financial information with respect to the trust.  Information respecting abandonment funds for Niagara and 2193914 is available on the NEB’s website at the links provided below.

If you have any questions or concerns with respect to pipeline abandonment funding, contact us at 1-855-884-5112 or by email at NGTL@enbridge.com or 2193914canadalimited@enbridge.com.

Projects

The demand for natural gas is growing steadily across Ontario. We have a number of construction projects that will help reinforce our distribution system.

Enbridge is proposing to install approximately 1.7 km of pipeline along St. Laurent Boulevard, in the City of Ottawa. Enbridge has identified the need to replace the existing pipeline on St. Laurent Boulevard due to the current pipe conditions and to better service 140 customers by transferring customers to an intermediate pressure (IP) system. The pipeline would start approximately 20 m south of Donald Street of St. Laurent Boulevard, continuing north on St. Laurent Boulevard for approximately 1.7 km where it will terminate approximately 20 m north of Montreal Road. The pipeline would consist of nominal pipe size (NPS) 6 IP polyethylene natural gas main. The pipeline is planned to be located mainly within municipal road rights-of-way, and will require short tie-ins to the existing network at road intersections at McArthur Avenue, Coté Street, and Noranda Street.


OEB Notice of Application

On June 12, 2019, 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 Georgian Sands planned subdivision in Simcoe County.

Request for intervenor status are due to the OEB by July 2, 2019.

 

Enbridge is regulated by the Ontario Energy Board (OEB), and is committed to meeting standards and regulations relating to the protection of the environment and public safety. Results of this environmental assessment will be presented in the Environmental Report as part of the application to the OEB. The Leave to Construct is the application submitted to obtain permission to build the project. The OEB would grant Leave to Construct once the project is approved.

Environmental Report

In accordance with the OEB's Environmental Guidelines for the Location, Construction and Operation of Hydrocarbon Pipeline and Facilities in Ontario, 7thEdition 2016, Enbridge has retained the services of Dillon to complete an environmental assessment for the proposed project.

The purpose of the environmental assessment is to: identify any potential impacts of the proposed project on the social, economic and natural environments; identify local or provincial concerns regarding the proposed project; determine preferred routing of the pipeline segments (and if alternate routing is practical); gather input from agencies, stakeholders, Indigenous communities and Métis, affected landowners, and the public. As well, mitigation measures are recommended to limit impacts on the social, economic and natural environments. It is important to minimize potential impacts of the proposed natural gas distribution pipelines and associated facilities on the environment. The data, analysis and results of the environmental assessment are detailed in the Environmental Report.

The Environmental Report was filed in May 2019 with the Ontario Pipeline Coordinating Committee (OPCC) for review and will also be filed with the OEB as part of the Leave-to-Construct application and evidence for the project.

Read the Environmental Report.

For new construction projects, the collective input from government agencies, municipalities, stakeholders, Indigenous communities and Métis, the public and landowners play an integral role in the route and site selection process.  

Prior to construction, public input is obtained to ensure that the community is advised of the proposed project, and to involve the public in the decision making process. Public consultation is a key component of the Environmental Report.

The consultation program helps identify and address stakeholder concerns and issues, and provides the public with an opportunity to receive information about the Project, and have meaningful participation into the Project review and development process.

Public input from the March and April Open Houses will be used to help finalize the preferred pipeline route and mitigation plans to be implemented during construction.

Once the Leave-to-Construct (LTC) application is made to the OEB, any party with an interest in the Project, including members of the public, can participate in the process.Stakeholder consultation is a key component of this study. Members of the general public, agencies, Indigenous communities and interest group representatives are invited to participate in the study. We will be hosting Open Houses to provide you with an opportunity to review the project and provide input. Details on the Open Houses are as follows:

Enbridge is proposing to construct new pipelines and associated facilities in Markham, Ontario. The objective of the project is to blend a small amount of hydrogen gas into our existing natural gas network, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Enbridge operates a facility which converts surplus electrical energy to hydrogen gas, which would be injected into the existing natural gas network. The blended gas would be distributed within the area outlined on the map below. Once the study is complete, Enbridge may apply to the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) for approval to construct the new pipeline. If approved, construction may begin in 2020.

The preferred route for Phase 1 of the project would involve the installation of approximately 1,325 m of 6-inch and 8-inch pipe primarily along Woodbine Ave. and Honda Blvd., ending at Enbridge’s Technology and Operations Centre. Phase 2 of the project would involve multiple pipeline segments of various lengths and sizes ranging from 2-inch to 8-inch pipe along Victoria Square Blvd., Woodbine Ave., Rodick Rd., Prince Regent St., Major Mackenzie Dr. E, Village Pkwy., Elgin Mills, and Honda Blvd..

An alternative route is also being considered as part of the study. The alternative route for Phase 1 of the project would involve the installation of 450 m of 6-inch pipe along Victoria Square Blvd. and an unnamed street. Phase 2 of the project will involve multiple pipeline segments of various lengths and sizes ranging from 6-inch to 8-inch pipe along Honda Blvd., Bishop’s Gate, Livante Ct., Helford St., Prince of Wales Dr., Duke of York St., Woodbine Ave., Betty Roman Blvd., Markland St., and Calvert Rd. The preliminary preferred and alternative routes are identified on the map below.

Enbridge Gas  Inc. (“Enbridge”) is proposing to build up to 3.6 km of nominal pipe size (“NPS”) 12 inch natural gas pipeline in North York (the “Project”). The Project is a reinforcement pipeline and as such will allow Enbridge to continue providing gas distribution service to customers in the area and meet gas demand stemming from customer growth in the area.

The Preliminary Preferred Route is comprised of approximately 3.2 km of nominal pipe size (“NPS”) 12 inch high pressure steel gas pipeline, and will originate at the intersection of Steeles Avenue West and Bathurst Street. From there it will travel south on Bathurst Street to its termination point approximately 150 m south of Ellerslie Avenue. A new district station will be installed at the termination point, and will connect the pipeline to existing Enbridge pipeline with approximately 20 m of NPS 8 inch steel intermediate pressure pipeline. The proposed gas pipeline route will be located mainly within the municipal rights-of-way (ROW).

The alternative route is comprised of approximately 3.6 km of nominal pipe size (“NPS”) 12 inch high pressure steel gas pipeline, and will originate at the intersection of Steeles Avenue West and Village Gate where it will connect to an existing Enbridge pipeline. From there it will travel south on Village Gate to Greenwin Village Road where it will turn east and travel to Chelmsford Avenue. At Chelmsford Avenue the pipeline will turn south and travel to Drewery Avenue, where it will turn east and travel to Grantbrook Street. At Grantbrook Street the pipeline will turn south and travel to Finch Avenue West, where it will turn east and travel to Senlac Road. At Senlac Road the pipeline will turn south and travel to the intersection of Senlac Road and Betty Ann Drive where it will tie-in to an existing Enbridge pipeline. A new district station will be installed at the intersection of Senlac Road and Betty Ann Drive, and will connect to existing Enbridge pipeline with approximately 20 m of NPS 8 inch steel intermediate pressure pipeline. The proposed route will be located mainly within the municipal ROW.

Enbridge Gas Inc. (“Enbridge”) is proposing to construct approximately 1.2 km of natural gas pipeline within Liberty Village. The Project will serve to supply gas to additional development, and reinforce the existing gas infrastructure to support future growth in the community.

Amended Preferred Route

The amended Preferred Route for the new gas pipeline consists of two sections having a total length of 1.2 km.  Section 1 of the new pipeline consists of 900 m of 8-inch Intermediate Pressure steel pipe beginning at King Street West and Jefferson Avenue. It extends eastwards along King Street before being directed south onto Atlantic Avenue where it then continues east along Snooker Street. It turns south onto Hanna Avenue and continues toward East Liberty Street. Finally, it continues eastwards along East Liberty Street and connects with an existing gas main at Pirandello Street.

Section 2 of the new pipeline consists of two individual segments of pipe. The first segment included in the original Preferred Route, is 200 m of 6-inch Intermediate Pressure polyethylene pipe beginning at Strachan Avenue and Ordnance Street, continuing east, before heading south where it ends. The second segment, identified as the Amendment to the Preferred Route is 85 m of 4-inch Intermediate Pressure polyethylene pipe beginning on Western Battery Road and connecting to an existing gas main at the intersection of Western Battery Road and East Liberty Street.

The proposed natural gas pipeline will be located mainly within the municipal rights-of-way (ROW).

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.

Enbridge Gas Inc. ("Enbridge"), is proposing to construct up to a total of approximately 37 kilometers (km) of natural gas pipelines at different nominal pipe sizes (NPS) and pressure systems, in the City of Kawartha Lakes (CKL), and the Township of Brock in the Regional Municipality of Durham (Durham Region), Ontario, to serve the Community of Fenelon Falls (the "Project"). The proposed pipelines will be located within existing road allowances in the Study Areas and is expected to operate at a pressure up to 400 psi in some sections along the pipeline route and less than 20% of the specified minimum yield strength (SMYS). Two separate Study Areas were identified for the reinforcement pipeline and the distribution pipelines. These segments and the proposed routes are described below:

Segment 1:

Also known as the Sunderland Reinforcement Segment (RS) will consist of approximately 8 km of NPS 6-inch steel extra high pressure (XHP) pipeline. The proposed pipeline will originate near the intersection of Highway 7/12 and Regional Road 10/Brock Concession Road 6 in the Community of Sunderland. The pipeline will travel east along Brock Concession Road 6, north on Simcoe Street and terminate at the intersection of Simcoe Street and Farmstead Road, southeast of the Hamlet of Manilla, where it ties into an existing Enbridge NPS 6-inch pipeline. The reinforcement pipeline will run parallel to Enbridge's existing NPS 4-inch pipeline.

Segment 2:

Also known as the Distribution Pipeline to Fenelon Falls Segment (DPFF) will originate approximately 1.2 km north of the intersection of Highway 7 and Taylor's Road in Oakwood. The pipeline will run north along Taylor's Road, continue east along Quaker Road, north along Eden Road and then east along Cambray Road/County Road 9 to rejoin Highway 35. From this point the DPFF will travel north to the Community of Fenelon Falls. The pipeline will terminate near the intersection of Bond Street and Colborne Street/County Road 121, for a total of approximately 29 km of a combination of NPS 6-inch and 4-inch extra high pressure (XHP) steel, and NPS 6-inch high pressure (HP) polyethylene natural gas pipeline.

For reasons outlined in the attachedEnbridge is requesting a minor deviation from the preferred route in the Environmental Report in the Fenelon Falls Segment.

OEB Notice of Application

On August 18, 2017, 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.

 For new construction projects, the collective input from affected government agencies, municipalities and landowners plays an integral role in the route or site selection process. The public notification process and consultation program including formal information exchange sessions, presentations to government bodies, environmental interest groups, community associations and affected residences is a major component of Enbridge's route selection process. Prior to construction, public input is obtained to ensure that they are advised of the proposed project, and to involve them in the decision making process. During the application process to the OEB, as well as during construction, affected landowners are advised of the project's progress by company representatives. Any landowner or community concerns which arise at this time are brought to Enbridge's attention to ensure that the issue is appropriately addressed.

As the GTA continues to grow, demands for energy such as natural gas also grow. In order to meet the demands of growth in the GTA and continue the safe and reliable delivery of natural gas to current and future customers, Enbridge will be upgrading the backbone of its existing natural gas distribution system.

The GTA Project will upgrade the existing distribution system that currently delivers natural gas to Brampton, Mississauga, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Markham, and Toronto.

Enbridge submitted a "Leave to Construct" application on December 21, 2012 to the OEB to obtain permission to build the project. After a year-long regulatory review process under the OEB, Enbridge received approval to proceed with the project on January 30, 2014.

The GTA Project has a western component, referred to as Segment A, and an eastern component, referred to as Segment B.

Enbridge is committed to keeping the community informed about the GTA Project. The information below describes the project route, facilities requirements, and any proposed changes to the project.

Segments A and B

The routes were selected based on the environmental assessment data and public input received during stakeholder consultation. The routes involve the least potential for conflict with existing and proposed land uses and other utilities, minimal disruption to traffic, and minimal disruption to communities and businesses during construction.

New Regulation Facilities and Modifications to Existing Facilities

Additional facilities and modifications to existing facilities are required. The new and modified regulation facilities will assist in regulating the flow of natural gas through Enbridge's pipeline system.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED PROJECT CHANGE AND PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE

Enbridge has retained Dillon Consulting Limited (Dillion) to undertake an amendment to the previous study completed for an expansion of the Jonesville regulation facility. The original location for the proposed facility was in the vicinity of Jonesville Crescent and Eglington Avenue in Toronto. Following further work and detailed design, a new location is being proposed at Pharmacy Avenue and Ashtonbee Road.

On Thursday November 26, 2015, Enbridge hosted a public Open House to provide the public with an opportunity to review the proposed project change and to provide input.

Open House attendees met with representatives from Dillon and Enbridge Gas, who provided background information on the project scope, study process, regulation facility information and project timelines.

To learn more about the Open House, read the Notice of Proposed Project Change and Public Open House. 

To find out more about the proposed project change, read the Information Boards and the Public FAQ's prepared for the open house.

The GTA Project Environmental Report Amendment #3 has been prepared for Enbridge by Dillon.
