Flanagan South Pipeline Project
Enbridge Pipelines (FSP) L.L.C. has completed construction on the Flanagan South Pipeline Project – a nearly 593-mile, 36-inch diameter interstate crude oil pipeline that originates in Pontiac, Ill. and terminates in Cushing, Okla., crossing Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. The majority of the pipeline parallels Enbridge’s Spearhead crude oil pipeline right-of-way. Enbridge also installed seven pump stations including one at the Flanagan Terminal and six along the pipeline route. Initial capacity is approximately 585,000 barrels per day (bpd), with an ultimate design capacity of about 880,000 bpd after pumping-power enhancements.
The Flanagan South Pipeline Project provides the additional capacity needed to bring increased North American crude oil production to refinery hubs on the U.S. Gulf Coast. The Flanagan South Pipeline Project will provide a long-term, stable, and reliable source of energy for the United States, enhancing the nation’s energy security. Communities located along the pipeline route may 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. That same commitment will be inherent in the design, installation, and operation of the Flanagan South Pipeline Project.
