Enbridge moves forward with Line 3


BEMIDJI—The proposed Sandpiper Pipeline through North Dakota and Minnesota may have been put on the back burner by energy company Enbridge, but another area pipeline project still is moving forward.

Enbridge's plan remains to replace its 1,097-mile Line 3 pipeline that runs from Alberta, Canada, through northern Minnesota to Superior, Wis. To maintain integrity with its pipeline system, the company said the project is to decommission the current pipeline and build a new Line 3 that takes a route farther south after it reaches Clearbrook, then east across Minnesota to Wisconsin along the same route as the proposed Sandpiper Pipeline.

"This is a project where we currently have support to replace in Canada, North Dakota and now in Wisconsin," said Shannon Gustafson, Enbridge media relations manager. "We're working with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission on regulatory approval to get the support in Minnesota, too."
