Scugog Island Pipeline Project

Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc.

Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. has applied to the Ontario Energy Board for approval:

  • To construct approximately seven kilometres of natural gas pipelines and associated facilities in the Regional Municipality of Durham to serve the community of Scugog Island
  • To charge a System Expansion Surcharge of $0.23 per cubic metre of gas to all customers taking distribution service from the proposed facilities in the community of Scugog Island
  • Of the form of its proposed land easement agreements

If approved, the proposed extra-high pressure 4-inch diameter, steel natural gas pipeline would start at an existing Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. pipeline just west of the intersection of Highway 7A and Regional Road 57 in the Township of Scugog, travel west along Highway 7A for approximately seven kilometres and end at the intersection of Highway 7A and Island Road.

Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. has also applied for approval to charge a System Expansion Surcharge of $0.23 per cubic metre of gas in addition to its base distribution charge, to be paid over a term of up to 40 years, by all customers in the community of Scugog Island that take service from the proposed facilities.

Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. is also asking the OEB to approve the form of agreement it offers to landowners to use their land for routing or construction of the proposed line.

Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. has a Municipal Franchise Agreement with the Township of Scugog and Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity from the Ontario Energy Board to serve the Township of Scugog.
