Customers asked to reduce natural gas use after Canadian pipeline explosion

Posted October 14, 2018

FortisBC has approximately one million gas customers and it is estimated that about 70% of the customers have the potential to lose gas supply.

As of early October 11, gas is now flowing in Enbridge's 30-inch natural gas line.

The UBC bulletin said although gas use should still be restricted, "UBC buildings that use natural gas for heating, hot water and cooking are no longer expected to be impacted".

The pipeline is part of the T-South system, which stretches over 1,000 kilometres from Chetwynd to the B.C.

"Obviously, we had gas flowing into two large pipelines that were operating at full capacity before the rupture", Stout said. Although the gasoline you pump into your vehicle is different than the natural gas in the pipelines, the natural gas is used to power oil refineries.

Fortis also pushed gas from its own Mt. Hayes LNG plant on southern Vancouver Island by revaporizing the gas stored there for export and backfeeding it to from the Island to the Lower Mainland.

A Virginia man was found dead after getting swept away from his vehicle in Pittsylvania County, state police said Friday. Federal officials were anxious that the fast-moving nature of the storm didn't give residents enough time to get out.

A statement from Enbridge issued on Wednesday afternoon said the fire had been extinguished and the company were working with the First Nations tribe to ensure there was no further disruption to their lives. No injuries were reported, and investigators are on scene, though the cause of the rupture remains unknown.

"Safety is always our top focus and top priority".

'Enbridge has been in constant communication with members of the community; we have provided accommodations and where appropriate are assisting in a return to their communities.

While customers in the northern region are probably rejoicing a little bit, Stout adds we're not out of the woods just yet.
