NEB confirms Enbridge’s Line 9 hydrostatic tests meet its criteria

Sept. 30, 2015

We are pleased the National Energy Board confirmed that our three hydrostatic tests met their criteria and were successful. 

We are confident these tests have helped provide reassurance and technical evidence to the public on the safe operating condition of Line 9. 

The safe operation of the pipeline is our top priority. 

Once Line 9 is returned to service, our goal is to operate it safely like we have done for close to 40 years. 

There are still some technical preparations that are required and line-fill is not an exactly timed process, so we will not speculate at this time on a specific date for return to service.
