Morris Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline

Recent growth in the Morris area made it necessary to expand the current natural gas capacity by installing an additional natural gas pipeline to serve existing and future natural gas customers in the surrounding area.

Construction started in June 2013 and the pipeline was in service August 2013. The project included:

  • installing a 4-inch natural gas pipeline west of Letellier to an existing natural gas pipeline north to St. Jean Baptiste where it connected with an existing 3-inch steel pipeline in the RM of Montcalm;
  • removing and replacing existing above grade infrastructure, such as valves located near the Plum River.
