Fortis Inc. Provides Update on Gas Supply to its British Columbia Utility

ST. JOHN'S, Newfoundland and Labrador, Oct. 11, 2018 — Fortis Inc. (“Fortis” or the “Corporation”) (TSX/NYSE:FTS) has been advised that as of early today, gas is now flowing in Enbridge’s 30-inch natural gas line. This line was shut down as a precautionary measure following the October 9, 2018 incident on Enbridge’s 36-inch gas line near Prince George, B.C.

This means more natural gas supply will gradually start to flow into the gas systems of our British Columbia utility, FortisBC. Gas supply will continue to be constrained until the 36-inch gas line is repaired. As a result, FortisBC is asking customers to avoid non-essential use of gas until the situation is completely resolved.

Customers can continue to access information at fortisbc.com. Both Fortis Inc. and FortisBC thank customers for their conservation efforts and support during this time.
