Proposed Bayhurst to Rosetown Gas Line Expansion
TransGas Limited, SaskEnergy's transmission subsidiary, is proposing a natural gas line that will increase gas supply in western Saskatchewan to meet residential, commercial and industrial customer demand. The project cost is currently estimated to be $170 million.
If constructed, the 135-kilometre, 24-inch high pressure transmission line will begin at an existing TransGas compressor station south of Eatonia, Saskatchewan. It would then continue northeast and end at the TransGas Rosetown Compressor Station.
Construction timelines are currently under evaluation. It is expected that construction would occur over two separate seasons. The Rural Municipalities in the project area include: St. Andrews (No. 287), Pleasant Valley (No. 288), Kindersley (No. 290), Snipe Lake (No. 259), Newcombe (No. 260), and Chesterfield (No. 261).
Open houses were held in the communities of Rosetown, Eatonia and Brock from June 25-27, 2019.
