Dawn Compressor Station (Dawn-Parkway Expansion 2017)
Our new Dawn "H" compressor station in the Township of Dawn-Euphemia is now in-service. Cleanup work will continue into 2018.
As construction winds down, Union Gas employees, our primary contractor AECON, and our subcontractors would like to extend a sincere thank you to the local community for its patience and understanding during these past two years of major construction.
Union Gas and its employees have been proud members of the Dawn community for over 100 years and we look forward to continuing to live and work here for many years to come!

Work is well underway on the project, which will help supply affordable, safe and reliable natural gas throughout Ontario. Check out our Winter 2017 Quarterly Community Update newsletter.
Reliable movement of natural gas
The purpose of this project is to ensure the continued reliable movement of natural gas to Union Gas' customers.
The existing Dawn Compressor Stations are near capacity, and there is a need to move greater volumes of natural gas through our system.
Union Gas pipelines and facilities are designed, constructed and maintained to meet or exceed the stringent codes and requirements of the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) Act, the Canadian Standards Association and Technical Standards and Safety Authority.
We are committed to constructing and operating our compressor facilities in an environmentally responsible manner.
A third party conducted an environmental study. Our environmental management practices are designed to avoid or mitigate impacts to surrounding areas.
We conducted meaningful consultation with municipalities, neighbouring landowners, government agencies and other interested parties. We have been operating in Ontario for more than 100 years and consider ourselves partners with the over 400 communities we serve.
Union Gas is proud of its long-standing relationship with Indigenous communities, and we take care to ensure they are aware of our projects and have an opportunity to participate in various phases.
Local communities will also benefit from the incremental taxes that Union Gas will pay on the new compressor annually.
