Faced with growing uncertainties over the future of fossil fuels, Enbridge wants to cut by a decade the estimated economic life span of its Upper Midwest pipeline system, which includes the newly built Line 3.

Enbridge's acknowledgement of growing climate policy pressure on its pipelines' longevity came in federal regulatory filings earlier this year.

Last week, Indigenous environmental group Honor the Earth asked Minnesota regulators to "promptly" start setting up a decommissioning fund for new Line 3, given a possible shorter-than-expected life span.
