Connect to Our System

We construct customer-specific facilities, by request, to connect your production or delivery sites to our system.

With nearly 15,000 kilometres of transmission gas lines throughout the province, and more than 1,200 receipt and delivery points, we can safely and reliably support your industrial or commercial natural gas transportation needs. 

Before connecting to our system, you should know:

  • We build custom connections to meet your needs. Note that TransGas owns and operates any facilities that are built.
  • Once you commit to a connection to our system, your team will be engaged throughout the execution of our project.
  • Project duration will vary depending on the complexity and timing of your request.
  • TransGas is a natural gas transportation company. Transactions related to buying or selling natural gas is not a service we provide. You will have to manage your gas supply, or use the services of a gas marketer.
