Union Gas announced the availability of 2 Bcf of peak storage at the Dawn Market Hub. The storage permits summer 1999 injection and 1999-2000 winter withdrawal. The storage capacity will be awarded based on a bidding process. All bids are due by 1 p.m. EST on Friday, May 21. The high bidders will be awarded the capacity by 3 p.m. EST that same day. The storage hub has six pipeline interconnects and easy access to 15 pipeline and distribution companies, Union Gas said. The complex has a working capacity of 130 Bcf and can deliver 2 Bcf/d for customers.

Encal Energy Ltd. of Calgary said it received approval from the Alberta Energy & Utilities Board (AEUB) for construction of the Wilson Creek Pipeline Project. The pipeline permit was originally granted Feb. 11 but was suspended pending the results of a further AEUB hearing. Encal CEO, David Johnson, said construction is expected to begin as soon as weather conditions permit. The pipeline will transport gas from Encal's Wilson Creek/Open Creek project area for delivery to the Gulf operated Rimbey Processing Facility. The Wilson Creek/Open Creek project represents a key gas and liquids producing region for Encal. Upon completion of the pipeline, production net to Encal will increase by 25 MMcfe/d, bringing total net production from this area to about 40 MMcfe/d.
