Enbridge Gas Inc. has applied for approval to drill natural gas storage wells in the Kimball-Colinville Storage Pool and the Payne Storage Pool, in St. Clair Township in the County of Lambton.
Enbridge Gas Inc. applied to the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry for approval to drill one horizontal natural gas storage well in its Kimball-Colinville Storage Pool and one vertical natural gas storage well in its Payne Storage Pool. Enbridge Gas Inc. says the wells are needed to maintain the deliverability of the storage pools and will not result in an increase in storage capacity. The Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry referred the application to the Ontario Energy Board. The Ontario Energy Board is required to report to the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry.
