Gas Distribution segment This segment consists of the company’s natural gas utility operations, the core of which is Enbridge Gas Distribution Inc. (EGD), which serves residential, commercial and industrial customers, primarily in central and eastern Ontario, as well as northern New York State. This segment also includes natural gas distribution activities in Quebec and New Brunswick, primarily through Enbridge Gas New Brunswick (EGNB). EGD EGD is Canada’s major natural gas distribution company. It serves approximately 2 million customers in central and eastern Ontario and parts of northern New York State. EGD’s utility operations are regulated by the Ontario Energy Board and by the New York State Public Service Commission. EGD is a reporting issuer in each of the provinces of Canada. EGD is subject to seasonal demand as a significant portion of gas distribution customers use natural gas for space heating. As a result, volumes delivered and resulting revenues and earnings typically increase during the winter months of the first and fourth quarters (year ended December 2015) of any given year. There are four principal interrelated aspects of the natural gas distribution business in which EGD is directly involved, such as Distribution Service, Gas Supply, Transportation, and Storage. Distribution Service EGD’s principal source of revenue arises from distribution of natural gas to customers. The services provided to residential, small commercial and industrial heating customers are primarily on a general service basis (without a specific fixed term or fixed price contract). The services provided to larger commercial and industrial customers are usually on an annual contract basis under firm or interruptible service contracts. Gas Supply To acquire the necessary volume of gas to serve its customers, EGD maintains a natural gas supply portfolio. During the year ended December 31, 2015, EGD acquired approximately 275 billion cubic feet (bcf) of natural gas, of which 67% was acquired from western Canadian producers; 19% wa
