Windsor Pipeline Replacement

Windsor waterfront

Project Phase: Regulatory Review

In Windsor, Essex County and Chatham-Kent, there is a need to ensure our pipelines and infrastructure continue to deliver natural gas reliably. With that in mind, Enbridge Gas Inc. is proposing to replace the Windsor Line natural gas pipeline.

Our proposed project involves replacing approximately 64 km of the existing Windsor Line, which is a combination of 8 inch and 10-inch diameter pipelines, with a new 6-inch diameter pipeline that will be constructed in the vicinity of the existing pipeline.

It will begin at Enbridge Gas' Sandwich Compressor Station, between Del Duca Drive and County Road 46 in the Town of Tecumseh, and will follow County Road 46 and Lakeshore Road 309 in the Town of Lakeshore, and then follow Goodreau Line to the existing Enbridge Gas Port Alma Gate Station in the Municipality of Chatham-Kent.

Our proposed project is subject to Ontario Energy Board (OEB) approval. If approved, construction could begin as early as spring 2020 and be complete by the end of 2020.
