Certarus Ltd. signs long-term gas supply agreement with Lake Shore Gold in West Timmins

Oct 11, 2020

Certarus Ltd. has entered into a long term compressed natural gas (CNG) supply agreement with Lake Shore Gold Corp, a subsidiary of Pan American Silver, to service the heating requirements of its Bell Creek and Timmins West mines.

This agreement is another milestone for Certarus in its commitment to provide bulk CNG service across Northern Ontario. By displacing more carbon-intensive fuels with natural gas, Certarus’ CNG platform provides a safe and reliable supply of clean, cost effective energy to its customers.

"Lake Shore is a leader in its industry and recognized the environmental and economic benefits of converting their heating operations from propane to natural gas. Certarus is able to provide service to large fuel users across Northern Ontario through our fully operational facilities in Timmins and Red Rock. By partnering with Certarus, mining operators, asphalt companies, other industrial users and even remote communities can meaningfully reduce their carbon emissions and at the same time lower their costs," said Stéphane Gallant, Certarus’ Manager of Business Development in the region.

Hillary Laughren, Procurement Manager at Lake Shore Gold Corp commented: “Certarus provided a turnkey solution from mine conversion to CNG delivery. We are extremely pleased to be able to reduce our carbon footprint and decrease our fuel management costs.”

Certarus expects to commence CNG supply to these mines in Q4 2020.
