Enbridge plans new pipeline in St. Clair Township

Published on

Enbridge Gas is planning a new pipeline and expansion at the company’s Corunna compressor station to meet growing demand for natural gas.

The company has told Lambton County it intends to submit an application to the Ontario Energy Board later this summer and begin construction next summer.

The proposal calls for a 1.2-kilometre natural gas pipeline to be built west of Highway 40 and south of LaSalle Line, and run parallel to two existing pipelines.

Enbridge also intended to remove above-ground piping at the compressor station on Tecumseh Road and replace it with below-ground piping.

That work is scheduled to start in October and be completed in late 2021.

Enbridge Gas merged with Union Gas earlier this year to become Enbridge Gas Inc., creating one of North America’s largest utilities.
