Customers Assured Ongoing Access to Safe, Reliable Distribution System
INUVIK, NWT – Inuvik Gas Ltd. (IGL) and the Town of Inuvik have agreed to a new 10-year Franchise Agreement that ensures the community will continue to have access to a safe, reliable gas distribution system for their energy needs.
“I want to thank the Mayor and Town Council for their co-operation and desire to find the best solution for the community”, said Brad Driscoll, General Manager, Inuvik Gas. “We have been part of this community for 15 years and we look forward to strengthening our relationship with customers and delivering on our energy commitment.”
The Town and Inuvik Gas explored several options over the last year before determining the best solution was a new Franchise Agreement to provide the community with access to natural gas and Synthetic Natural Gas at competitive rates.
“We look forward to working with Inuvik Gas and exploring other fuel options that can be used in the existing distribution system, such as Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG),” said Mayor Floyd Roland. “This franchise renewal assures residents of continued high-quality service from a company that has served them for a decade and a half.”
As the LNG supply chain continues to develop and mature, it is anticipated this will provide additional fuel options for the community.
