To further optimize and secure our gas supplies, Énergir will install a second natural gas line parallel to the one between the Intragaz storage site in Saint-Flavien and the delivery station in Lévis (Saint-Nicolas), via Saint-Apollinaire.
The installation of this second pipeline will allow Énergir to extract natural gas from the storage site in Saint-Flavien more rapidly to meet our customers’ heating needs during periods of extreme cold, commonly known as the “peak energy periods.”
By optimizing our infrastructure in this way, we will reduce our dependence on natural gas transportation suppliers, which is the most expensive supply method for Énergir and our customers. The gas will be stored at Intragaz during the summer, when it is cheaper to buy it, and will be useful to meet energy needs quickly, for example when it is very cold in the winter.
This new infrastructure will not bring more natural gas in the pipeline. Our Vision 2030–2050 leads us to reduce our volumes overall and to rather inject where we have value, for example during peak energy periods. Énergir’s infrastructure must support this Vision and therefore be adapted.
