Enbridge Gas Inc. has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for approval to construct approximately 5.7 kilometres of 4-inch diameter extra high pressure steel pipeline, in Blenheim, in the Municipality of Chatham Kent. The proposed pipeline will transport renewable natural gas produced at Waste Connections of Canada Inc.’s planned renewable natural gas facility at Ridge Landfill and connect to Enbridge Gas Inc.’s natural gas distribution system. Enbridge Gas Inc. also plans to construct a renewable natural gas injection station at Ridge Landfill.
Enbridge Gas Inc. states that Waste Connections of Canada Inc. plans to build and operate renewable natural gas gathering, upgrading and compression facilities at Ridge Landfill, a waste disposal facility, in Blenheim. The new renewable natural gas facility will produce and convert landfill gas into renewable natural gas, suitable for injection into Enbridge Gas Inc.’s distribution system. Enbridge Gas Inc. states that Waste Connections of Canada Inc. will pay for the project and that it will have no cost impact on existing ratepayers.
Enbridge Gas Inc. has also applied for approval of the forms of agreements that it has offered or will offer to landowners affected by the routing or location of the proposed pipeline.
