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. If critical infrastructure is within your work area, a SaskEnergy Technician will be required on site while work is taking place.
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.
