Dawn Gateway Pipeline Limited Partnership and Dawn Gateway Pipeline, LLC (collectively “Dawn Gateway”) is conducting a binding open season for firm transportation between MichCon’s Belle River facility and Union Gas’ Dawn Hub (“Dawn”). At least 80,000 Dth/d is available for a minimum term of 7 years. Dawn Gateway first announced its international pipeline project in September 2008, and sought to have the pipeline regulated by the federal National Energy Board (NEB). As a result of interventions before the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) by consumer groups and directly affected landowners, it was determined that the Dawn Gateway pipeline will fall within provincial jurisdiction.
The initial open season resulted in the sale of approximately 80% of the available capacity. In March 2010, Dawn Gateway received all required OEB approvals for the Canadian portion of the pipeline. Shortly thereafter, Dawn Gateway was approached by the anchor Shippers requesting a delay of the in-service date, delaying the construction of the pipeline.
