Since renewable natural gas has the same chemical makeup as natural gas after it has been purified in an anaerobic digester, it can be transported in the same pipelines as natural gas and sold throughout North America. In Atlantic Canada we have a robust network of natural gas pipelines that can provide the delivery of RNG to homes, business, and industry.

  • Liberty Utilities has 852 km of pipeline in southern New Brunswick
  • Nova Scotia has 470 km of pipeline owned by Eastward Energy, most of which is located in the Halifax Regional Municipality.
  • Emera New Brunswick owns the Brunswick Pipeline, a 145-kilometer natural gas transmission pipeline in southwest New Brunswick that delivers natural gas from Saint John LNG to markets in Canada and the US.
  • Saint John LNG is Canada’s first liquified natural gas (LNG) terminal that receives, stores and regasifies LNG to natural gas.

All of this means the infrastructure is already in place for renewable natural gas distribution.
