Flanagan South Pipeline Project
Enbridge Energy Company, Inc. (Enbridge) is currently constructing the Flanagan South Pipeline Project – a nearly 600-mile, 36-inch diameter interstate crude oil pipeline that will originate in Pontiac, Ill. and terminate in Cushing, Okla., crossing Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. The majority of the pipeline parallels Enbridge’s existing Spearhead crude oil pipeline right-of-way. Enbridge has also proposed to install seven pump stations including one at the Flanagan terminal and six along the pipeline route. Initial capacity will be 600,000 barrels per day (bpd).
The Flanagan South Pipeline Project will provide the additional capacity needed to bring increased North American crude oil production to refinery hubs in the U.S. Gulf Coast. The Flanagan South Pipeline Project will provide a long-term, stable and reliable source of energy for the U.S, enhancing the nation’s energy security. Communities located along the pipeline route will benefit from property taxes over the life of the pipeline, as well as from the creation of high-paying construction and manufacturing jobs, and associated economic activity during construction.
Enbridge has been committed to safe and reliable operation of their pipelines for more than 60 years. This same commitment will be inherent in the design, installation, and operation of the Flanagan South Pipeline Project.
