Panhandle Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline now in service
Union Gas announced yesterday the in-service of its $264M expansion of the Panhandle Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline.
Company officials say this system will provide increased natural gas capacity to Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent and surrounding areas including the growing greenhouse market in the Leamington and Kingsville area.
“The Panhandle Transmission Pipeline will provide increased natural gas capacity to meet our customers’ needs and support broader economic development in an area that continues to experience tremendous growth,” said Sean Collier, district manager, Windsor Chatham for Union Gas. “Additionally, now that the expansion is officially in service, we would like to thank local municipalities and communities for their support during the construction process.”
Union Gas officials say the 2017 Panhandle Reinforcement Project will move an incremental 106,000 GJ/d of natural gas supplies through 41 kilometres of pipeline between Union Gas Dawn Hub in the township of Dawn-Euphemia, Ontario and the Union Gas Dover Transmission Station in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent, Ontario. This project was placed into service on time and on budget.
Overall, Union Gas’ Panhandle Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline System supplies natural gas to nearly 190,000 customers and stretches 119km in length from the Union Gas Dawn Hub and interconnects with other upstream pipeline systems in the United States at Windsor, Ontario.
