How long will the supply of natural gas last?

The National Energy Board (NEB) estimates that Canada has enough natural gas potential resources and proven reserves to meet our demand for over a century. NB is connected to the larger North American system via the Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline and has access to this supply.

Existing local natural gas supplies such as Sable Island and Deep Panuke are estimated to last another 5-10 years.

The production of natural gas in New Brunswick from shale formations is under review as well. The Government of New Brunswick estimates that there is enough natural gas in NB alone to fuel the province for over 100 years.

Where does most of our natural gas come from?

Currently, Enbridge Gas NB’s primary sources of natural gas are the Sable Island and Deep Panuke fields, both located off the shores of Nova Scotia.

Other origins of natural gas in New Brunswick include the Canaport LNG terminal and McCully field. These local sources of natural gas account for over 90% of the natural gas used on the public system.

Why do companies get gas somewhere other than the public system?

In 1999, in a very unusual approach, the government of New Brunswick allowed certain large industrial businesses to bypass the public system. New Brunswick is one of the few jurisdictions in North America where large industrial users are allowed to bypass the public natural gas distribution system and take natural gas directly from the main line. By doing so, they’re not contributing to the public system and therefore aren’t helping to keep costs down for other NB homes and businesses.

In addition, the government made changes to natural gas regulations in 2012 which allowed for compressed natural gas to be delivered via trucks to large customers. This too poses a threat as it offers large businesses the opportunity to leave the public system.
