Enbridge Inc. has filed an application with the National Energy Board for the construction and operation of the Canadian segment of the Alberta Clipper Project, a proposed 1,607-kilometre expansion project to provide greater access for Western Canadian crude oil to U.S. Midwest markets.

Enbridge is progressing with land access, engineering and initial procurement commitments to facilitate commencement of construction in 2008. Alberta Clipper is expected to be in service by mid-2010, subject to finalization of commercial terms with industry, and regulatory approvals.

Alberta Clipper involves the construction of a new 36-inch diameter crude oil pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin. In Canada, the project is 1,074 kilometres of new pipeline and related pump station and terminal facilities.

Total construction cost of Alberta Clipper is expected to be CDN$2 billion for the Canadian segment, and US$1 billion for the U.S. segment to be undertaken by Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P. (in both cases, in 2007 dollars, excluding allowance for funds used during construction).
