A company originating in Canada placed an application to build the largest pipeline which would span 612 miles from North Dakota into both Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Enbridge Energy, as of Tuesday, is attempting to tie down agreements from major oil producers which is a pivotal piece of getting the plans for the $2.6 billion pipeline off the ground. The pipeline is designed to commute 225,000 barrels of oil each day to northern Minnesota and 375,000 barrels to Wisconsin daily.
Katie Haarsager, spokesperson for Enbridge Energy, stated that the company placed their application to North Dakota regulators but has yet to do so in Minnesota and Wisconsin and that they intend on completing that step soon.
Haarsager says Enbridge will being soliciting open interest in the pipeline within the week.
