Enbridge welcomes the issuance of a Presidential Permit on Line 67 after a nearly five-year process of review. The renewed focus of the State Department and this permit reaffirms Line 67 continues to serve the national interest by delivering secure and reliable supplies of crude oil to U.S. refineries, including those in Minnesota and neighboring states.
Line 67 currently operates under an existing Presidential Permit that was issued by the State Department in 2009 and the 2017 permit authorizes Enbridge to fully utilize its capacity across the border.
Line 67 is a key component of Enbridge's Mainline System, which U.S. refineries rely on to supply the crude oil that fuels our everyday lives. Those refineries provide vital products to consumers across the Midwest, including in Minnesota. There is a strong demand for pipeline capacity and Line 67 remains critical energy infrastructure for the United States.
