What is a high pressure natural gas line?
In providing service throughout Québec, Énergir transports natural gas over long distances through high pressure natural gas lines (up to 30 times the pressure of a car tire). The presence of these lines is identified by visual markers that contain information in case of emergency. These markers may not indicate the exact location of the line.
Area protected by the easement
A servitude was granted to Énergir, either by you or by a previous owner, so that we may construct, operate or carry out work or maintenance on our natural gas installations.
For the area protected by the servitude, an authorization request must be obtained from Énergir to:
- Carry out any work, construct a facility or engage in ground disturbance work (eg, work that reduces the thickness of the layer of soil, planting of a hedge, installation of a fence, leveling)
- Cross a natural gas line with a vehicle or mobile equipment above this area.
