Alberta Clipper (Line 67) Capacity Expansion
Due to increasing demand for pipeline capacity by our customers, Enbridge is expanding the capacity of our existing Line 67 (known as Alberta Clipper Pipeline) from 450,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) to 570,000 bpd.
This pipeline capacity expansion project includes:
- the installation of one new mainline pump at eight facilities
- four new mainline pumps and an electrical substation at the Metiskow Station
- the addition of a metering terminal and booster pump at the Hardisty Terminal
Enbridge received approval from the National Energy Board (NEB) in February 2013 to proceed with the modifications to the existing facilities. All other federal, provincial and municipal permits required to complete construction were also approved. Construction activities began at the end of June 2013. Project work is expected to be completed and in-service by July 2014.
The Canadian portion of Line 67 is 1,078 kilometres long, transporting crude oil from our Hardisty Terminal in southeastern Alberta 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.
