Enbridge upping gas flow

Flow of natural gas is now at 85 per cent of capacity through a segment of an Enbridge Inc. pipeline that ruptured near Prince George, B.C. in early October. 

Enbridge has increased the flow from 80 per cent along the 90-centimetre pipeline, following an amendment order from the National Energy Board. The board had previously ordered that Enbridge keep the flow at 80 per cent, following the Oct. 9 explosion. 

The company says it is working on bringing its gas flows back to full operating capacity, while still conducting safety inspections. 

The fully-repaired service is expected to deliver between 23 and 25 million cubic metres of natural gas per day to the Lower Mainland and the U.S. Pacific Northwest. 

FortisBC has already indicated that natural gas supply will be reduced this winter due to the explosion. 

The RCMP have said there is no evidence of foul play involved in the pipeline rupture.
