OEB approves pipeline construction in Lambton County

TORONTO, March 10 /CNW/ - Today the Ontario Energy Board (the Board) approved an application by the Dawn Gateway Pipeline Limited Partnership to construct a 17 kilometre (km) natural gas pipeline (the pipeline) and associated facilities in the Townships of St. Clair and Dawn-Euphemia. The Board also approved the regulatory framework and tariff to transmit natural gas on the Ontario portion of the Dawn Gateway Pipeline.

The pipeline is part of a larger project in which Spectra Energy and DTE formed a joint venture known as the Dawn Gateway Pipeline Limited Partnership (DGLP) to develop the Dawn Gateway Pipeline, a 34 km pipeline that will start at the Belle River Mills storage facility in Michigan and end at the Dawn Compressor Site in Ontario. In a previous decision, the Board granted Union Gas Limited leave to sell the St. Clair Line to DGLP, as part of the overall project, on the condition that ratepayers are allocated $6.4 million.

The regulatory framework the Board approved will allow DGLP to charge negotiated rates for transportation services on the Dawn Gateway Pipeline up to a specified maximum.

The Ontario Energy Board regulates the province's electricity and natural gas sectors in the public interest. It envisions a viable and efficient energy sector with informed consumers and works toward this vision through regulation that is effective, fair and transparent.
