The Gas Utility’s goal is to manage the assets of its natural gas and oil reserves and deliver natural gas to customers within its franchise area in a safe and reliable manner. The department consists of three business units: Gas Distribution; Gas Marketing; and Natural Gas and Petroleum Resources (NGPR).
The Gas Distribution Department distributes natural gas to customers within its franchise boundary, obtaining a return on total equity that is warranted according to the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) for a regulated Gas Distribution Company. Gas Distribution uses competent trained personnel to provide customer service, engineering, construction, operation and maintenance of distribution facilities to ensure a safe and reliable system.
