Kingsville Transmission Reinforcement
The greenhouse market in the Leamington and Kingsville areas is growing fast, and there is an increased demand for natural gas from residential, commercial and industrial customers in Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent and surrounding areas.
With those positive developments in mind, Union Gas has a proposal to construct up to a 20-inch natural gas pipeline in the area. The proposed pipeline will be approximately 17 kilometres in length and begin at Union Gas' existing 20-inch Panhandle Pipeline.
It will feature a new valve site and tie-in between Belle River Road/County Road 27 and French Line Road/County Road 31 in the Town of Lakeshore.
The proposed pipeline will end at a new valve site located at the southwest corner of Concession Road 3 East and Graham Side Road, or at an existing valve site located at the northwest corner of Concession Road 2 East and Graham Side Road, both in the Town of Kingsville.
A preferred route for the proposed pipeline has not been determined at this time.

Commitment to environment
Union Gas is committed to minimizing the effects of our projects and operations on the environment. An Environmental Study will be conducted by an independent third party, and in consultation with affected Indigenous communities, landowners, government agencies and others.
We value the thoughts and ideas of interested parties. Feedback received from the public, through our information sessions and other venues, will be instrumental in evaluating and ultimately confirming the final preferred route for the pipeline. Public information session details will be communicated shortly.
We've been safely operating in Ontario for more than 100 years, and carry our strong and established safety culture to each and every project. Safety is our top priority, and Union Gas pipelines and facilities are designed to meet stringent safety codes and requirements of the Canadian Standards Association and the Technical Standards and Safety Authority.
We are also a big contributor to the economic vitality of the province. Our experienced pipeline contractors, for example, will use many local resources to build the pipeline and where possible will procure materials from the local community.
