EPCOR Natural Gas Limited Partnership has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for an order granting leave to construct natural gas pipelines and ancillary facilities in the Municipality of Kincardine, the Township of Arran-Elderslie, the Municipality of Brockton and the Municipality of West Grey. The pipelines consist of approximately 34.1 km of Nominal Pipe Size (NPS) 4-inch polyethylene (PE) natural gas distribution pipeline and approximately 46.5 km of NPS 2-inch PE natural gas distribution pipeline.

EPCOR Natural Gas Limited Partnership states that the pipelines are needed to supply natural gas to approximately 423 customers in the community who currently do not have access to natural gas service.

EPCOR Natural Gas Limited Partnership states that on June 9, 2021, the proposed project (also referred to as the Brockton Expansion Project), was approved to receive funding assistance under Phase 2 of the Government of Ontario’s Natural Gas Expansion Program.

EPCOR Natural Gas Limited Partnership is also asking the Ontario Energy Board to approve the form of agreement it off ers to landowners to use their land for routing or construction of the proposed line.

EPCOR Natural Gas Limited Partnership is also asking the Ontario Energy Board for approval of Franchise Agreements with the Municipality of Brockton, the Municipality of West Grey, and the Township of Chatsworth.

EPCOR Natural Gas Limited Partnership intends to charge customers to be served by the proposed project the same rates that it charges its customers in Southern Bruce. EPCOR Natural Gas Limited Partnership is also asking the Ontario Energy Board for approval to establish the Brockton Customer Volume Variance Account to capture revenue variances resulting from variances in forecasted and actual average use per customer.
