Alberta Clipper (Line 67) Capacity Expansion Phase II
Based on the initial design, Line 67 (known as the Alberta Clipper Pipeline) has the ability to transport up to 800,000 barrels-per-day (bpd). Phase I of the capacity expansion was approved by the National Energy Board in February 2013 to increase the pipeline capacity from 450,000 bpd to 570,000 bpd. Construction began in June 2013.
Phase II is the final expansion project in order to meet the Alberta Clipper Pipeline capacity target. Construction activity will take place within or immediately adjacent to existing Enbridge stations or terminal properties.
- Hardisty Terminal project work includes electrical work and upgrading an existing metering system within the facility boundaries
- Cactus Lake and Herschel Pump Stations project work includes installation of four new pumps, electrical work and a new substation at both stations.
- Loeburn, Bethune, Odessa and Lanbank Pump Stations project work includes installation of three new pumps, electrical work and a new substation at each of the stations.
- West Souris Pump Station project work includes installation of four new pumps, electrical work and a new substation.
- St Leon Pump Station project work includes installation of three new pumps, electrical work and a new substation.
Enbridge received approval from the National Energy Board (NEB) on February 10, 2014 to proceed with the Phase II expansion. Over the coming months Enbridge will continue to work with appropriate provincial authorities to meet their requirements. Pending these regulatory approvals, work at the above mentioned Enbridge properties is expected to take approximately 15 months.
The Canadian portion of Line 67 is 1,078 kilometres, transporting crude oil from our Hardisty Terminal in Alberta southeast to our Gretna Station in southern Manitoba. Line 67 then connects at the international border to the U.S. portion of the system and continues to Superior, Wisconsin.
