Project Benefits

Natural Gas

Natural gas and natural gas storage have an important role to play in Nova Scotia's energy future, and will help Nova Scotia become one of the most environmentally and economically sustainable places in the world.

With the smallest carbon footprint of any fossil fuel, natural gas is one way Nova Scotia is reducing its greenhouse gas emissions. Natural gas is also a highly efficient energy source, delivering more useful energy to customers than other fuel sources like wood, coal or oil.

Alton Natural Gas Storage will be the only natural gas storage facility in Atlantic Canada and the only storage facility connected to the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline, helping to provide Nova Scotians with affordable and reliable natural gas year-round.
