Agreement Will Secure Millions of Litres of Propane for People of Churchill: Schuler

The Manitoba government has reached agreement with Superior Plus LP to cover additional costs related to shipping millions of litres of propane via sea to help keep the people of Churchill warm this winter, Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler announced today.

“As we did last year, the government has agreed to fund the extra costs of moving nearly three million litres of propane by sea to ensure an adequate supply of heating fuel for the people of Churchill this winter,” said Schuler.  “The agreement does not cover the cost of the fuel, but rather to subsidize the incremental costs of transporting propane by sealift when rail service is not available to ensure affordability of propane to consumers in Churchill.”

The province has helped co-ordinate the shipment of bulk loads of propane twice since heavy flooding in the spring of 2017 damaged the rail line to Churchill.  To date, over 2.6 million litres of propane has been sent to the community via ship.
