Enbridge Wins Bakken Pipeline Project Approval

Posted on

Canada’s National Energy Board (NEB) has approved the Bakken Pipeline Project Canada application submitted by Enbridge Bakken Pipeline Company Inc., on behalf of Enbridge Bakken Pipeline Limited Partnership.
  In its application, Enbridge Bakken requested approval to build and operate a 77-mile pipeline and a new pump station to transport crude oil from the Bakken and the Three Forks Formations in Montana and North Dakota to refinery markets in North America. With a starting point in Steelman, Saskatchewan, the pipeline will be linked to EPI’s Mainline in Cromer, Manitoba.
  The Board has also given Enbridge Bakken approval to acquire and operate Line EX-02, which is currently owned by Enbridge Pipelines (Westspur) Inc.
  With an expected in service date of early 2013, the capital cost for this project is estimated to reach approximately $180.1 million.
