March 21, 2022 – Enbridge Gas Notice of Maintenance Work
Enbridge Gas is currently undertaking maintenance-related work on a section of natural gas pipeline serving Haileybury and Cobalt.
Public safety and maintaining customer gas service are our top priorities.
A mobile supply of compressed natural gas (CNG) will be used to serve customers through the local pipeline system and avoid interruption as we undertake this work. A temporary CNG site has been established at the former Cobalt Arena, and CNG will be shipped to the site by truck as needed. The mobile CNG site is on standby to be placed in operation when needed. The area will be fenced and monitored as a safety precaution while in operation.
This work is expected to continue through the spring and summer of 2022. Enbridge will provide updates as the work progresses.
Will this work impact my natural gas service?
This plan will not require an interruption in customers gas service, and customers do not need to take any action.
What is Compressed Natural Gas and is it safe?
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is natural gas that has been compressed using pressure so that it takes up less space and can be used as a portable energy supply. CNG has many uses, including as a low-carbon fuel for vehicles, to supply affordable energy to industries in remote locations that are not served by transmission pipelines, or as a temporary supply of natural gas into existing distribution systems to maintain service during maintenance work. This is safe and established mobile energy distribution process, which is governed by safety standards and practices.
Is the CNG site secure?
Public safety is a top priority for Enbridge. The CNG site will be fenced and monitored as a safety precaution, while it is in operation.
