Enbridge Opens Oil Moving Facility

Posted: Updated:

Over $1.2 billion dollars.

That's how much Enbridge has invested in North Dakota alone.

Enbridge operates the longest crude oil pipeline system in the United States and Canada,

delivering more that 2.5 million barrels of crude across the U.S. every day.

Today, Enbridge celebrated the completion of two major projects that allow for a 'take away capacity' from North Dakota of 145,000 barrels of oil per day.

The Bakken Pipeline Expansion Project and the Berthold Rail Valve Turn attracted many state and US congressional representatives in Berthold today.

Even in celebrating the progress made and more to come, a common theme at the podium encouraged Enbridge to continue expanding.

(Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, (D) North Dakota) "What you're doing here at Enbridge is you're stepping up. You're stepping up and meeting those challenges and moving that energy where we can use that energy. If we don't have transportation, we will never have a domestic independence policy in our country."

Enbridge will continue expanding energy transportation capability with the construction of another pipeline next year.

When complete in 2016, the 610 mile Sandpiper Pipeline Project will move sweet crude from Tioga to Superior, Wisconsin.
