  • 2 compressors being added
  • Serving increased demand
  • Consultations a key component

Union Gas is building two additional compressor facilities on the existing Lobo Compressor Station site located northwest of London, Ont., in the Township of Middlesex Centre.

One compressor has been completed as part of our 2016 expansion efforts, Lobo C, and the other, Lobo D, is included in the 2017 expansion.

Compression facilities are essential to the movement of natural gas through pipeline systems to supply clean, affordable gas to homes and businesses across Ontario.

Union Gas is committed to minimizing the effects of our projects and operations on the environment. An integral part of these projects includes environmental studies conducted by an independent consultant.

We are conducting 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 First Nations and the Métis Nation 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.

As part of the 2016 compressor project, Union Gas filed an application for the proposed compressor with the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) on Sept. 30, 2014. It was approved, construction has completed, and it is now in-service. The 2017 compressor was approved by the OEB on Dec. 22, 2015, and is currently under construction.
