Union Gas to Implement 2013 Regulated Transportation Rates

January 29, 2013

Union Gas has received approval from the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) for a change in its regulated transportation rates. These new and approved rates are the result of Union Gas' 2013 rate case, in which the OEB approved our forecast of revenues and costs. These new rates are effective January 1, 2013.

M12 Firm Transportation
M12 Transportation – Firm customers will see a rate increase for Dawn to Parkway, Dawn to Kirkwall, Kirkwall to Parkway and M12-X service and a rate decrease for F24-T service.  Fuel ratios have changed to reflect Union Gas’ Board-approved compressor fuel and unaccounted-for-gas (UFG) forecast.

Individual bill impacts will vary depending on a customer's use of the pipeline capacity. Please see the following chart and the link below for more information:
