Public comment begins for Enbridge Line 3 replacement

Monday, May 15, 2017

The Minnesota Department of Commerce (DOC) on Monday released the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and opened a public comment period for the Enbridge Line 3 Replacement Project. Partnership executives said this marks an important step in the regulatory process.

Built in the 1960s, Line 3 is a 1,097-mile crude oil pipeline extending from Edmonton, Alberta to Superior. A new 36-inch diameter pipeline will replace the existing 34-inch diameter pipeline along most of the route. In the U.S., the replacement pipeline will follow Enbridge's existing Line 3 route from Joliette, N.D., to Clearbrook, Minn., and then will primarily follow existing pipeline and transmission routes from Clearbrook to Superior.
