Natural gas pipelines are used to transport natural gas from gas wells or liquefied natural gas (LNG) import facilities to generators large industrials and the distribution systems throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and New England. Unlike refined petroleum products, natural gas is delivered directly to homes and businesses through an extensive network of very small diameter distribution pipelines.
In New Brunswick, natural gas is transmitted to markets via the Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline and the Brunswick Pipeline (owned and operated by Emera New Brunswick).
Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline transports offshore and onshore natural gas as well as natural gas sourced from LNG imports to Canada. The sources include the Sable and Deep Panuke projects off Nova Scotia's coast, Corridor Resources' McCully Project in southern New Brunswick, and the CanaportTM LNG Receiving and Re-gasification Terminal in Saint John, New Brunswick which is delivered via Brunswick Pipeline.
The Brunswick Pipeline delivers natural gas from the CanaportTM LNG receiving and re-gasification terminal near Saint John, New Brunswick to markets in Canada and the US Northeast. The 145-kilometer pipeline extends through southwest New Brunswick to an interconnection with the Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline at the Canada/US border near St. Stephen, New Brunswick.
