Gas distributors reach agreement with TransCanada to ensure access to diverse, 
affordable natural gas supplies at Dawn Hub and Niagara 
Supply diversity and toll certainty will help keep Ontario and Quebec's energy 
costs low 
CHATHAM, TORONTO AND MONTREAL, Sept. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - Union Gas Limited 
("Union Gas"), Gaz Métro Limited Partnership ("GazMétro") and Enbridge Gas 
Distribution ("Enbridge Gas") announced today an agreement with TransCanada 
PipeLines ("TransCanada") to ensure access to diverse and affordable natural 
gas supplies. 
The agreement includes a revised framework for TransCanada's mainline tolls 
and the proposed Kings North project. The revised project, when combined with 
Segment A of Enbridge Gas' proposed GTA Project, will provide a new natural 
gas transportation path through the constrained Parkway to the Maple 
transportation corridor near Toronto, Ontario, giving consumers in eastern 
Ontario, Quebec and markets further east, secure access to diverse and 
affordable supplies of natural gas. This gas will be distributed from the 
Union Gas Dawn Market Hub in south western Ontario and through Niagara. 
Details of the agreement will be developed in the coming weeks. 
"On behalf of the three local distribution companies, we are pleased to have 
reached an agreement in principle with TransCanada that will give consumers 
access to affordable and diverse gas supplies and long-term certainty on 
transportation tolls," said Sophie Brochu, President and Chief Executive 
Officer of Gaz Métro. "Access to affordable energy helps businesses be 
competitive, supports local economic growth and keeps costs low for families 
and businesses in Ontario and Quebec." 
While this agreement will increase consumers' access to affordable energy, 
Union Gas, Gaz Métro and Enbridge Gas are continuing discussions with 
TransCanada regarding the proposed Energy East Project which would convert a 
portion of TransCanada's Mainline system from natural gas to oil.
