Line 3 pipeline replacement complete, opens Friday: Enbridge


Enbridge announced Wednesday the upgrade and expansion of its Line 3 pipeline across Minnesota is complete and will become operational on Friday.

The Canadian-based company’s president and CEO Al Monaco said in a statement that the pipeline “will soon deliver the low-cost and reliable energy that people depend on every day.”

The line starts in Hardisty, Alta. and clips a corner of North Dakota before crossing Minnesota en route to Enbridge’s terminal in Superior, Wisconsin.

Enbridge said its completion restores the pipeline’s full capacity of 760,000 barrels per day.

Opponents have challenged the pipeline’s permits in court to no avail.

They’ve also unsuccessfully sought to convince American President Joe Biden, who canceled a key permit for the Keystone XL pipeline soon after taking office, to intervene.
