Enbridge's proposed $2.6 billion pipeline hits another snag

Workers have completed work in Wisconsin on an Enbridge pipeline. The proposed portion that would cross northern Minnesota is still undergoing the permitting process.

Enbridge's proposed $2.6 billion oil pipeline across northern Minnesota received another dose of uncertainty - one that could lead to more delays - as two state agencies said Tuesday they will revise their permitting schedules because of a recent court ruling.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) said it will not release its draft water-quality certification for the proposed pipeline - a replacement for Enbridge's current deteriorating Line 3 - on July 1 as previously scheduled. The MPCA said it needs to consider an additional environmental review effectively ordered by the Minnesota Court of Appeals earlier this month.
