Irving Oil Signs McCain Foods As Delivered Natural Gas Customer In NB And Maine

For the first time, NB industrial customers will have access to trucked natural gas, providing them with energy cost savings

SAINT JOHN, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Irving Oil announced today that it has signed an agreement with McCain Foods, making it Irving Oil's newest natural gas industrial customer, and the first in New Brunswick to receive compressed natural gas (CNG) delivered by trucks.

"We are extremely pleased to be working with McCain Foods," said Darren Gillis, General Manager of Irving Energy. "The availability of natural gas for industrial customers in the Maritimes and Maine means good news for these companies as well as for our region's economy."

Jean-Pierre Rajotte, Vice President, Manufacturing, North America of McCain Foods ( Canada), said, "The switch to natural gas will help our plants remain competitive with other regions. In New Brunswick, the high cost of energy makes it difficult to compete with plants in other regions, which have access to lower-cost energy alternatives.  This will help level the playing field.  In addition, natural gas is a cleaner fuel, so it will help reduce our environmental footprint."

Large customers such as manufacturing facilities, hospitals, and universities require large quantities of energy to sustain operations. Irving Oil's entrance into the delivered natural gas business provides energy alternatives for these major customers.
