Pipelines play a role in our everyday lives and are essential to our quality of life and economy. Pipelines move the products necessary for transportation, heating and cooling our homes, producing our food supply, and manufacturing consumer products.
Pipelines are the safest, most efficient and most reliable way to transport energy resources. In the United States alone, more than two million miles (3.2 million kilometres) of pipelines deliver petroleum products and natural gas. Enbridge owns and operates pipelines containing crude oil, refined petroleum products, liquids, natural gas, and natural gas liquids across North America – from the Northwest Territories to Washington State to Texas to New Brunswick to the Gulf of Mexico.

Enbridge owns and operates the world’s largest and most complex crude oil and liquids pipeline system, delivering an average of 2.2 million barrels a day to refineries all over North America. Enbridge also operates both gathering pipelines and transmission pipelines for natural gas – transporting about 15 per cent of Texas natural gas production, moving natural gas from Western Canada to the U.S. Midwest, and serving more than two million customers in Eastern Canada and New York State. Gathering pipelines transport raw products from production areas to a connection with a higher-volume transmission line. From there, the product is “shipped” through the transmission pipeline to market – and ultimately to end users such as homes and businesses.
