Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership has applied to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission for a certificate of need and a pipeline routing permit for its Line 3 Pipeline Replacement Project. The Line 3 Pipeline Replacement Project is described as an integrity and maintenance driven project that would involve the construction of 337 miles of new 36-inch diameter pipeline to replace 282 miles of the existing 34-inch Line 3 pipeline in Minnesota. The new Line 3 would be capable of delivering all grades of crude oil and is generally expected to serve the same markets and transport the same product mix as the existing Line 3. Once the new Line 3 pipeline has been installed, tested, and is operational, the existing Line 3 pipeline would be permanently deactivated in adherence with federal regulations.
