Controversial Line 3 done; oil set to flow Friday, Enbridge says
September 30, 2021
Oil will begin flowing through the controversial new Line 3 pipeline across northern Minnesota on Friday after Enbridge announced that work on the controversial project is "substantially complete."
The $3 billion-plus pipeline is a replacement for the 50-year-old Line 3, which is corroding and operating at half capacity.
Construction of the $3 billion-plus Minnesota portion of the pipeline - one of the largest projects in the state in recent history - began last December after a six-year battle before state regulators.
