Énergir: process modification on locate reports

Locate report on sketch only: For faster, more agile service

Please note that Énergir is changing the way it processes certain locate reports and sketches, as well as certain gas network location practices. New gas network location technologies present an opportunity for Énergir to provide faster, more agile service to locate requesters and to allow them greater autonomy in their work management.

New – Locate report on sketch only

Based on certain risk criteria, Énergir will now provide a location report on sketch only. For these criteria, Énergir will not travel to the site to do ground marking. The marking can therefore be done by the requester using the information shown on the sketch provided by Énergir. This is a good practice to prevent damage to underground infrastructure.
This change in process began gradually over the past year and will ramp up during the upcoming construction season. Here are the situations in which Énergir may provide you with a locate report on sketch only, if the work area includes*:

A service connection with a flow restrictor

  • Repaving
  • Installation of a pool
  • Drainage work near the foundation of a building
  • Installation of a fence

*Under certain conditions. As of April 15, 2022. This list is subject to change over time.

Several awareness tools to assist in the proper interpretation of the sketch and best practices for ground disturbance work near the gas network are provided with the locate report (separate emails, interpretation document, explanatory videos, etc.).

Please pay attention to the type of locate report provided to you and make sure to properly inform contractors or teams to whom you send locate reports.

Safety is everyone’s business.
