Enbridge Gas Inc. has applied to construct a natural gas pipeline to serve the community of Saugeen First Nation, north of Southampton in Bruce County.
If the application is approved, the project would involve the construction of a 16 kilometre natural gas pipeline in the Saugeen First Nation, the Township of Arran-Elderslie and the Town of South Bruce Peninsula. Enbridge Gas Inc. states that the project is needed to supply natural gas to the community of the Saugeen First Nation.
Enbridge Gas Inc. is asking the Ontario Energy Board for approval to charge a System Expansion Surcharge of $0.23 per cubic metre (m3) for a term of 40 years, to all new customers taking natural gas distribution service from the proposed new pipeline. Enbridge Gas Inc. is also asking for approval to apply the System Expansion Surcharge of $0.23 per m3 to any future extensions to the proposed pipeline.
