Enbridge Gas Inc. St. Laurent Ottawa North Replacement Project

Enbridge Gas Inc.

Enbridge Gas Inc. has applied for approval to construct approximately 19.8 kilometres of natural gas pipeline and ancillary facilities in the City of Ottawa.

If the application is approved as filed Enbridge Gas Inc. will replace the existing St. Laurent Pipeline in two final phases of its multiple year project.

Enbridge Gas Inc. filed its original application with the Ontario Energy Board in March 2021. The original application was placed in abeyance by the Ontario Energy Board pending the resolution of concerns raised by the Ministry of Transportation in relation to the route of the pipeline at Vanier Parkway. Enbridge Gas Inc. says it has resolved the routing issues by moving the affected segment of the pipeline to an adjacent property owned by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Enbridge Gas Inc. has also updated the original construction schedule and made other related updates to the original application. It is important to review the updated application carefully to determine if you will be affected by the changes.

Enbridge Gas Inc. is also asking the Ontario Energy Board to approve the form of agreement it offers to landowners to use their land for routing or construction of the proposed pipeline.

Enbridge Gas Inc. says the project is needed to address pipeline integrity concerns related to the age and condition of the St. Laurent Pipeline.
