Enbridge filed an application for a Presidential Permit with the U.S. Department of State to authorize Enbridge to transport 800,000 barrels per day (bpd) on the existing three-mile segment of the Line 67 pipeline that crosses the U.S.-Canada border.
Expanding capacity at the U.S.-Canada border on an existing pipeline that already operates under a Presidential Permit is a safe and efficient way to maintain America’s energy security, curb reliance on imports from unstable nations, and continue to generate additional economic activity in communities where pipelines have been operating for more than 65 years.
Enbridge filed an application for a Presidential Permit with the U.S. Department of State (DOS) on November 20, 2012. That application requests that DOS issue a new Presidential Permit to authorize Enbridge to transport an annual average capacity of 800,000 barrels per day (bpd) on the existing 3-mile segment of Line 67 that crosses the U.S.-Canada border.
On February 10, 2017, DOS issued a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) as part of its review of Enbridge’s application. The Draft SEIS concluded that no significant adverse environmental impacts associated with this project. The DOS has opened a public comment period on the draft SEIS from February 10 to March 27, 2017. For more information, please click here.
