Pipeline de gaz naturel proposé par Gazoduq

Saviez-vous qu'un nouveau pipeline de gaz naturel est proposé dans le bassin versant de la rivière des Outaouais?

Le pipeline proposé part de l’Ontario où il serait raccordé à un pipeline acheminant du gaz naturel de l’Ouest canadien vers une nouvelle installation qui sera construite au Saguenay, au Québec. Le corridor à l’étude traverse la partie nord du bassin versant de la rivière des Outaouais et devrait traverser de nombreux cours d’eau, lacs et zones humides.

Gazoduq a soumis des descriptions de projet à la fois à l’Office national de l’énergie et au ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques. Nous allons surveiller l’évolution de ce projet pour mieux comprendre ses impacts sur le bassin versant.

Gazoduq vient de publier les horaires des prochaines séances d’information pour plusieurs villes, dont Val-d’Or, Rouyn-Noranda, Amos et Kirkland Lake.

Visitez leur site Web pour en savoir plus sur ce nouveau pipeline qu’ils proposent pour la région, qui transportera du gaz naturel comprimé à l’installation du Saguenay.

    The company Gazoduc would construct an entirely new liquefaction complex on the Saguenay fjord just downstream from Chicoutimi/Saguenay. The project description on line only briefly mentions the proposed LNG facility: “Gazoduq proposes to introduce a new pipeline connecting TransCanada PipeLines Limited’s existing main natural gas transmission system (TransCanada) in northeastern Ontario to the future natural gas liquefaction, storage and export complex (LNG Complex) in Saguenay, Quebec… The Project will provide the required link between the excess supply of natural gas from Western Canada and the international markets targeted by the LNG Complex (eg Asia, Europe).” (Google translation into English).

    Divorcing the assessment of the pipeline from the assessment of the LNG complex is highly irresponsible. It means that the former does not mention the LNG tanker traffic that would go up and down the fjord, directly through critical habitat for the endangered St. Lawrence population of beluga whales. Baie-Sainte-Marguerite, just downstream from the proposed complex, is where beluga adults, juveniles and new-born calves spend the summer. The entire fjord is within a Quebec national park, and the St. Lawrence adjacent to the mouth of the Saguenay is a national marine conservation area. Anyone who has visited the Saguenay region knows how spectacular it is, and will be shocked by this proposal.

Natural Gas Pipeline Proposed by Gazoduq

Did you know there is a new natural gas pipeline being proposed in the Ottawa River watershed?

The proposed pipeline runs from Ontario where it would connect to an existing pipeline bringing natural gas from Western Canada to a new facility that is to be built in Saguenay, Quebec. The study corridor cuts across the northern part of the Ottawa River watershed and would have to cross numerous stream, lakes and wetlands.

Gazoduq has submitted project descriptions to both the National Energy Board and to the Ministère de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques (Québec government). We will monitor how this project develops and to better understand what the impacts this project will have on the watershed.

Gazoduq just released times for upcoming public information sessions for a number of locations including Val-d’Or, Rouyn-Noranda, Amos, and Kirkland Lake.

Visit their website to learn more about this new pipeline they are proposing for the region, which will transport compressed natural gas to the Saguenay facility.
