July 6, 2007

Clipper pipeline hearing set Nov. 5

The National Energy Board has scheduled a hearing on an application from Enbridge Pipelines Inc. to construct and operate the Canadian portion of the Alberta Clipper Expansion Project.

The Canadian portion of Alberta Clipper would involve the construction and operation of approximately 1,074 km of new 914 mm outside diameter (36-inch) oil pipeline between Enbridge’s Hardisty Terminal and the Canada - United States border near Gretna, Manitoba.

It also includes related physical works and activities such as the construction and operation of nine pump stations along the pipeline. The new facilities at the Hardisty Terminal would include receipt tankage, booster pumps and other terminalling facilities. The estimated cost of the project is $2 billion with construction done by the end of 2009.

The hearing is scheduled to start on November 5.
