Enbridge Wins Bakken Pipeine Project Approval

January 2012, Vol. 239 No. 1

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.

Enbridge Bakken sought approval to build and operate a 77-mile pipeline and a 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 owned by Enbridge Pipelines (Westspur) Inc. With an expected in service date of early 2013, the cost for the project is estimated at $180.1 million.
