[WorldKings – World Almanac Events 2023] 74th anniversary of the establishment of Enbridge Inc. (April 30, 1949 - April 30, 2023)

30-04-2023

(worldkings.org) Enbridge Inc. is a multinational pipeline company headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Over time, it has continued to grow through the acquisition of other existing pipeline companies and the expansion of their projects. It owns and operates pipelines throughout Canada and the United States, transporting crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids.

 

 

Enbridge's expansive pipeline system is the longest in North America. Its crude oil system consists of 27,500 kilometres (17,100 miles) of pipelines in Canada and the United States. Its 38,300-kilometre (23,800 mile) natural gas pipeline system connects across multiple Canadian provinces, throughout several US states, and offshore in the Gulf of Mexico.

Enbridge's pipelines transport 20% of the natural gas consumed in the United States. It owns and operates Canada's largest natural gas distribution network, providing distribution services in Ontario and Quebec. Union Gas in Ontario now fully operates under Enbridge Gas Inc. In Quebec, Enbridge has interest in ownership in Gazifère.

 

 

Despite its main business being fossil fuels, Enbridge has proposed a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, with an interim target to reduce emissions intensity by 35% by 2030. It has built several renewable energy projects within North America and Europe in recent years, including wind and solar assets, waste heat recovery facilities, a geothermal project, a power transmission project, and a hydroelectric facility. Enbridge has two Technology + Innovation labs, one in Calgary, Alberta, and the other in Houston, Texas.
