PNG maintaining service to South Taylor and Kiskatinaw area customers amidst upstream operational impacts
At approximately 8:00 a.m. today, Pacific Northern Gas (PNG) was informed of an upstream operational issue with impacts to PNG’s natural gas distribution system in the South Taylor and Kiskatinaw areas.
Upon notification, PNG activated its contingency plan. Our immediate activities were to ensure public safety and the continuity of natural gas supply to the affected areas.
The upstream situation was made safe by stopping the flow of natural gas to isolate the system.
PNG does not expect service interruptions to its customers. To maintain continued service to all customers, PNG is serving the areas with Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) during this time. PNG has served the Peace Region with LNG on a number of occasions. LNG is a clean and safe energy source that PNG regularly deploys on an as needed basis to ensure continuity of service to customers.
Residents may see PNG crews working along Highway 97, near the South Taylor Rest Stop.
PNG anticipates returning to its regular natural gas supply by November 11, 2022.
Public and employee safety, and reliability of service, are PNG’s top priorities. Our system has an excellent reliability and safety record as a result of our commitment to system maintenance and safe practices for those working on and around our system.
Thank you to everyone assisting us with this response. We will release further information as it becomes available.
