Today, Gazoduq has submitted its Detailed Project Description to the Impact Assessment Agency of Canada (IAAC). This is another important step in the impact assessment process before the IAAC.

The Detailed Project Description contains:

  • A detailed presentation of the project components, which will be subjected to an impact statement and then jointly assessed by the IAAC and the Canada Energy Regulator (CER).

  • A description of Gazoduq’s information and consultation efforts carried out to date with Indigenous groups and local communities.

  • The answers to the summary of questions provided by the IAAC following its period of engagement and consultation with the public regarding the initial project description.

Next steps

  • In accordance with the DPD analysis carried out by he IAAC, Gazoduq will file an impact statement that will be jointly assessed by the IAAC and the Canada Energy Regulator (CER).

  • In addition to participating in federal and provincial regulatory processes, Gazoduq is continuing its ongoing consultation process, particularly with Indigenous groups and local communities.

  • The company is also continuing its consultative activities through regional round tables, and through meetings with private land owners and with stakeholders in civil safety and emergency management.

Throughout this process, the company aims to provide accurate and transparent information, so we can strive to develop an overall low-impact project. 


 Frequently Asked Questions:


Could the transmission line eventually transport something other than natural gas?


No. Our underground transmission line is intended solely to transport natural gas. Moreover, gas transmission lines remain the safest means of energy transportation, according to Transport Canada.
Under no circumstances could our project become anything else or serve any purpose other than to transport natural gas. From both a technical and a regulatory perspective, the right-of-way will be used for one project only, namely our own.

What impact would a leak have on the environment (soil, watercourses, etc.)? 


 It is important to clarify that natural gas is not like oil. Lighter than air, it rises and then quickly disperses into the air without leaving a trace. Natural gas is insoluble (it does not mix with water). An underwater leak creates bubbles that quickly rise to the surface and then dissipate into the air.
