Mainline Enhancement Program - U.S.
Enbridge Energy Partners, through its affiliate, Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership, (collectively referred to as "Enbridge") is proposing a series of pump station and terminal upgrades as an expansion of its crude oil mainline pipeline system, known as the Lakehead System, between the U.S./Canadian border near Neche, N.D. and Enbridge's Flanagan Terminal near Pontiac, Ill. The Mainline Enhancement Program is designed to expand access to refinery markets in the U.S. Midwest and beyond for growing production from western Canada and the Bakken Formation by adding pumping capacity to its existing pipelines known as Line 61 and Line 67. The expansions complement Enbridge’s ongoing efforts to meet North America's needs for reliable and secure transportation of petroleum energy supplies.
The Mainline Enhancement Program is another positive step toward North America energy security.
