Working safely is part of the job
Written permission to complete work over, near or across a SaskEnergy gas line is required if your proposed work:
- Includes constructing a road, street, pathway, lane, pavement, or parking area; and/or
- Is on behalf of a public utility, municipality, city, or railway.
The application and approval process ensures compliance with applicable regulations and will stipulate any conditions required for your proposed work.
What to Expect
- When completing the application form below, you must attach drawings or sketches of your proposed work. Include the distance to our facilities or gas line.
- A SaskEnergy representative will contact you about your proposed work and if your application is approved, rejected or if other agreements must be in place to begin work.
- We review applications on a first come, first serve basis.
- Allow at least 3-5 business days to process your application.
- Do not proceed with work. Starting work before you receive written approval from SaskEnergy can create a hazardous situation or result in a fine.
Temporarily using heavy equipment at existing grade does not require SaskEnergy's permission as part of legislation. But, heavy equipment may damage a gas line if a minimum ground depth is not established or maintained. Equipment operators are liable for damage if reasonable measures are not taken. If equipment crossing is required for more than a year, you must select 'permanent road construction' in your list of activities.
