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.
