Some Natural Gas Flowing Again

PRINCE GEORGE - Gas is flowing through a 30 inch Enbridge pipeline once again.  The line was shut down as a precaution after the explosion and fire Tuesday night on its twinned 36 inch line near the city of Prince George.

Service will now begin to be restored to about 128 customers in Salmon Valley who lost their gas after the line was shut down after the blast.  Those customers will have to wait for a Fortis BC representative to come to their home or business to turn gas back on at the meter and relight all affected appliances.

Fortis says "while bringing the natural gas back on is a positive step,  the gas supply will continue to be constrained until the 36 inch line is repaired."

The company is still asking customers through the province to avoid non essential use of gas until both lines of the twinned pipeline are up and running.
