2018 Smellfie Contest 

Natural gas really stinks. We want to educate you about natural gas safety and take a picture of your reaction to the awful smell of natural gas – this is your ‘smellfie’!

Stop by the Enbridge Smellfie booth at popular events across Ontario. You’ll get to try our Scratch ‘n Sniff to take a whiff of what natural gas actually smells like. Our team will take your smellfie, provide you with your photo to take home, and help you enter the contest for a chance to win one of ten $500 prizes*. Check back here or follow us on Twitter @enbridgegas for updates. 

Entries will be posted in our Flickr photo gallery.

Do You Know What Natural Gas Smells Like?

In its pure state, natural gas is odourless – for your safety, we add an odourant called mercaptan, to give it a distinctive rotten egg or sulphur like odour. If you smell natural gas inside or outside, act quickly and remain calm. Go outside or leave the area immediately and call our 24-hour Emergency Number: 1-866-763-5427. We provide free emergency response 24/7. Visit our smell of gas page to learn more important safety precautions.

Not sure what a rotten egg smells like? You can request free natural gas scratch 'n sniff brochures by emailing us your name, mailing address and the quantity you would like to receive.
