Dawn Parkway Firm Transportation Open Season
Accessing liquid, diverse, abundant supply sources
December 15, 2016
Union Gas is holding an open season for firm M12 transportation capacity of up to 700,000 GJ/d beginning in 2019 or 2020 along the following transportation paths:
(a) Dawn to Parkway;
(b) Dawn to Kirkwall; and
(c) Kirkwall to Parkway.
A limited amount of capacity may also be available as early as November 1, 2017.
Union Gas is also offering a portion of this capacity through the flexible M12-X Firm Transportation Service which includes Dawn, Parkway and Kirkwall as receipt and delivery points. This service provides shippers with the flexibility to transport gas between the three interconnects on the Union Gas Dawn Parkway System in any direction on a firm basis.
The open season closes and all bids are due on or before 1:00 PM Eastern Time, February 2, 2017. Union Gas will contact all responding parties on or before February 7, 2017. Union Gas expects to award capacity on or before February 22, 2017.
The open season offers firm access to not only the liquidity and diversity of the Dawn Hub, but also access to Appalachian supplies at the Dawn, Niagara and Chippawa supply points. Customers in eastern Canada and the U.S. Northeast can access these supply points by aligning Union Gas transportation service with downstream pipeline capacity offered on TransCanada and interconnecting systems in the United States. TransCanada is concurrently holding a New Capacity Open Season for new firm transportation capacity downstream of Parkway.
The Dawn Hub is the largest integrated natural gas storage facility in Canada and one of the largest in North America. The Dawn Hub is fully integrated into the North American supply and transportation system providing shippers with the ability to access competitive, diverse and flexible supply options.
