Wisconsin history and operations



In 1950 Enbridge (formerly Lakehead Pipeline) finished construction on Line 1, from Edmonton, Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin; this was the first pipeline linking resource-rich Canada to the U.S. energy markets. Since that time Wisconsin has grown to become the hub of Enbridge’s system in the U.S. Today, Enbridge operates approximately 1,552 miles of liquids pipelines in Wisconsin and meets 100 percent of the state’s refinery capacity needs.

In addition to pipelines, Wisconsin also houses Enbridge’s Superior Terminal, a bustling 450-acre hub of crude oil transportation with six pipelines coursing in and five pipelines coursing out to meet North America’s petroleum energy needs. With the completion of our recent mainline enhancements, the Enbridge system has the capacity to transport 2.8 million barrels per day (bpd) through the Superior Terminal. The 45 tanks in Superior hold 10.3 million barrels. Recently, the terminal underwent an expansion that added three of those tanks along with 1.5 million barrels of additional storage capacity.

Each year Enbridge’s operations contribute approximately $28 million in annual property taxes to the state of Wisconsin. Enbridge employs more than 350 employees and contractors in Wisconsin to safely manage Enbridge’s expansions and operations in the state; these employees are spread across 19 office locations, including Pipeline Maintenance Facilities located in Superior, Vesper, Ft. Atkinson and Janesville.
