Alberta Clipper (Line 67) Capacity Expansion Phase II
Based on its 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, to increase the pipeline capacity from 450,000 bpd to 570,000 bpd, was approved by the National Energy Board in February 2013. Construction began in June 2013, and Phase I was mechanically completed in the third quarter of 2014.
Phase II represented the final expansion project in order to meet the Alberta Clipper Pipeline capacity target. Construction activity took place within or immediately adjacent to existing Enbridge stations or terminal properties.
- Hardisty Terminal project work included electrical work and upgrading an existing metering system within the facility boundaries
- Cactus Lake and Herschel Pump Stations project work included installation of four new pumps, electrical work and a new substation at both stations.
- Loeburn, Bethune, Odessa and Lanbank Pump Stations project work included installation of three new pumps, electrical work and a new substation at each of the stations.
- West Souris Pump Station project work included installation of four new pumps, electrical work and a new substation.
- St Leon Pump Station project work included installation of three new pumps, electrical work and a new substation.
Enbridge received approval from the National Energy Board (NEB) in February 2014 to proceed with the Phase II expansion. Phase II was completed and placed into service in July 2015.
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.
