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 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% of the state’s refinery capacity needs.

In addition to pipelines, Wisconsin also houses Enbridge’s Superior Terminal, a bustling 550-acre hub of crude oil transportation with six pipelines coursing in and five pipelines coursing out to meet North America’s petroleum energy needs. The Enbridge system has the capacity to transport more than 2.9 million barrels per day (bpd) through the Superior Terminal. About 20% of all daily U.S. crude imports pass through the Superior Terminal, whose 550-acre facility has a shell capacity of 12 million barrels.

In 2019, Enbridge paid more than $37 million in taxes, including property tax, sales-and-use tax and corporate income tax; these dollars can be used for schools, infrastructure, health and wellness, and other important community needs. Enbridge has a workforce of about 340 employees and contractors in Wisconsin; these employees are spread across 19 office locations, including Pipeline Maintenance Facilities located in Superior, Vesper, Ft. Atkinson and Janesville.
