Enbridge completes North Dakota pipeline expansion

CALGARY, Alta. - Enbridge Inc. said on Jan. 5 that it has completed a $147 million expansion of its North Dakota oil pipeline system to handle rising production from the prolific Bakken oilfield.
Capacity on the system, controlled by Enbridge's U.S. affiliate Enbridge Energy Partners LP, has been boosted by 40,000 b/d at the system's western end, which runs to Minot, N.D., while the Minot to Clearbrook, Minn., leg of the system can handle an additional 51,000 b/d.
The expansion, which opened on Jan. 1, raises the total capacity of Enbridge's North Dakota system to 161,000 b/d to accommodate rising output from the Bakken, a massive oilfield lying under parts of North Dakota, Montana and southern Saskatchewan.
