Marcellus/Utica Gas Soon Heading to Canadian Capital of Ottawa

Iroquois Gas Transmission System is a natural gas pipeline that brings gas from eastern Canada to the New York City area. It is owned by TransCanada Corporation, Dominion Resources, KeySpan Corporation, New Jersey Resources Corporation, and Energy East Corporation. There have been plans, for years, to connect the Constitution Pipeline to the Iroquois and flow Marcellus/Utica gas to Canada by converting Iroquois to be bidirectional. As we all know, the Constitution has been stalled since 2014 because of the corrupt State of New York blocking it. There’s still hope that Constitution will get built. In October they asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to override the New York and allow the project to proceed (see Constitution Pipeline Asks FERC to Override NY DEC). Iroquois is no longer waiting on the Constitution. They’ve pushed forward and recently Canada’s National Energy Board (NEB) voted to approve changing the Iroquois on their side of the border to be bidirectional, allowing Marcellus/Utica gas to begin flowing into Ontario–eventually all the way to the capital city of Ottawa by hitching a ride on TransCanada’s pipeline network. How cool is that? Marcellus/Utica gas supplying the capital of Canada. A report by the Ontario Energy Board says Marcellus/Utica gas is projected to supply up to 74% of Ontario’s natgas demand!…
