2017 Regulated Transportation Rates

December 22, 2016

Union Gas has received approval from the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) for a change in its regulated transportation rates.  These new rates, which are effective January 1, 2017, are the result of Union Gas’ 2017 rates application, January 2017 QRAM, and Union’s interim rates for the cap-and-trade program.  

M12 Firm Transportation service monthly demand and commodity charges have changed as outlined in the following chart.  Fuel ratios have changed to reflect increases to Union Gas’ compressor fuel and unaccounted-for-gas (UFG) costs.

Individual bill impacts will vary depending on a customer's use of the pipeline capacity.  Please see the following chart and the link below for more information:
