Enbridge Gas Inc. has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for an order granting leave to construct natural gas pipelines in the community of Sandford, within the Township of Uxbridge. The pipelines consist of approximately 4.9 kilometres of Nominal Pipe Size (NPS) 2-inch polyethylene (PE) distribution pipeline and approximately 8.4 kilometres of NPS 4-inch PE distribution pipeline. Enbridge Gas Inc. is also proposing to construct ancillary facilities. The location of the proposed pipelines is shown in the map.
Enbridge Gas Inc. states that the pipelines are needed to supply natural gas to approximately 183 new customers in the community of Sandford, within the Township of Uxbridge, who currently do not have access to natural gas service. Enbridge Gas Inc. states that it intends to charge the OEB approved System Expansion Surcharge to all new customers that will be taking service from the project.
Enbridge Gas Inc. states that on June 9, 2021, the proposed project (also referred to as the Sandford Community Expansion Project), was approved to receive funding assistance under Phase 2 of the Government of Ontario’s Natural Gas Expansion Program.
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 line.
Enbridge Gas Inc. is also seeking approval to cancel and supersede the existing Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity held by Enbridge Gas Inc. for the former Town of Uxbridge, the former Township of Uxbridge and the former Township of Scott and replace them with a single Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to construct works to supply natural gas in the Township of Uxbridge.
Please review the application for more information about the proposed project.
