Natural Gas

The New Brunswick Energy and Utilities Board is empowered under the Gas Distribution Act, 1999 with the responsibility for regulation of the natural gas industry within the province. This responsibility includes approval of applications for rates and tariffs, pipeline construction, special franchises and gas marketer's certificates. The Board's regulatory mandate extends to activities of the general franchise holder, local gas producer franchises and gas marketers. In New Brunswick, natural gas is provided in an unbundled market which separates the pipeline distribution company from the suppliers of natural gas.

The Board’s main role in this sector is related to Enbridge Gas New Brunswick, the holder of the franchise for the distribution of gas in the province. The Board regulates the rates Enbridge charges to deliver gas to its customers as well as the customer service policies.

In addition to the operation of the utility, the Board also has jurisdiction over the marketing of natural gas in the province. While Enbridge has the sole right to distribute the gas in the province, the ability to sell gas is a competitive market. Currently there are five marketers licensed to sell gas to customers in the province although only three companies are actively selling to a wide number of customers: Park Fuels Inc., Irving Energy Services and Enbridge.
