Natural gas supply for Ontario consumers
Very little natural gas is produced in Ontario, yet with cold winters and a large industrial metropolitan area, Ontario is one of North America's largest consumers of natural gas. Ontario has the third most manufacturing employees of any jurisdiction in Canada and the United States (only California and Texas have more).
To meet demand, natural gas is transported by many different pipelines to Ontario from key North American supply basins: Western Canada, Gulf of Mexico, U.S. mid-continent and U.S. northeast shale.
Ontario also has some of the largest storage facilities in Canada and North America. Ontario is ideally located as an important link for natural gas transportation, storage and distribution.
