A Historic Mission to Meet Regional Energy Needs
Iroquois was created in response to dramatic increases in natural gas demand and anticipated future needs. Fresh from the energy crisis of the 1970s, the Northeast Region found itself increasingly dependent on petroleum products. The discovery of vast reserves of natural gas in Western Canada during the 80’s opened up new possibilities allowing for the creation of a new partnership, designed to link the Canadian supplies with the Northeast markets.
Since beginning full operations in 1992, we have expanded our system to meet the needs of our customers while minimizing the impact on local communities. Through the addition of seven compressor stations, a 36-mile marine pipeline extension and 1.6-miles of pipeline loop, Iroquois has operationally doubled the amount of natural gas transported on its system.
