Enbridge Pipeline hearing set for Aug. 21 at Century School

Enbridge invites landowners, elected officials and the public to open houses in North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin during the week of Aug. 19 to learn more about the company’s Sandpiper Pipeline Project.

The project is being developed to meet the growing demand for North Dakota crude and will assist in establishing a long-term, stable and reliable source of crude for the United States and its refineries.

A meeting will be in Park Rapids from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21 at Century School.

Project team members will be available to meet one-on-one with residents and interested community members to provide information and answer questions. The open houses will be informal. Community members are encouraged to view displays, speak one-on-one with project team members and come-and-go at their convenience.

Enbridge is proposing to expand its existing pipeline system by constructing an approximately 610-mile pipeline to transport crude petroleum from Enbridge’s Beaver Lodge Station south of Tioga, N.D. to its terminal in Superior, Wis. The Sandpiper Pipeline will be owned and operated by Enbridge Pipelines (North Dakota) L.L.C.

According to Enbridge, from Superior, the oil will be transported by Enbridge and other interconnected pipelines to refinery hubs in the United States and eastern Canada.
