Gas utilities and storage


On Sept. 5, 2023, Enbridge announced it was acquiring three American natural gas utilities from Dominion Energy, Inc. The three utilities are:

  • The East Ohio Gas Company, also known as Dominion East Ohio, which serves more than 1.2 million customers across more than 400 communities and 27 counties in Ohio.
  • Questar Gas, which serves about 1.2 million customers across Utah—that’s about 97% of households in the state—as well as regions in southwestern Wyoming and Idaho, in addition to its related Wexpro companies.
  • The Public Service Company of North Carolina, also known as PSNC Energy, which serves more than 600,000 customers across 28 counties in North Carolina.

Enbridge’s gas utility business, Enbridge Gas Inc., becomes the largest by volume in North America—with about 7,000 employees delivering 9.3 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day (Bcf/d) to about 7 million customers.

“Adding natural gas utilities of this scale and quality, at a historically attractive multiple, is a once-in-a-generation opportunity. The transaction also reinforces our position as the first-choice energy delivery company in North America,” says Greg Ebel, Enbridge’s President and CEO.

With the addition of these gas utility operations in Ohio, Utah, North Carolina, Wyoming and Idaho, Enbridge now has a significant presence in the U.S. utility sector.
