Line 3 Replacement (L3R) Project: The Line 3 Replacement Program is an integrity and maintenance driven project, and spans from Hardisty, Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin and consists of 1,031 miles of 36-inch diameter pipeline. The U.S. portion of the program (from the Canadian border to Superior) has a capital cost of $2.6 billion that will be jointly funded with Enbridge Inc. L3R represents a major enhancement of our mainline liquids pipeline system and comes with significant benefits to our customers. The increased reliability of throughput on our system will provide customers with greater certainty of service to key markets, and aligns well with our Number One priority of safety and operational reliability. The L3R Program is targeted to be completed in 2019.

Sandpiper Project: North Dakota Pipeline Company LLC. is proposing this approximately $2.6 billion expansion project. It will involve construction of an approximate 600-mile pipeline from Beaver Lodge Station near Tioga, North Dakota to the Superior, Wisconsin mainline system terminal. The new line will twin the existing 210,000 Bpd North Dakota system mainline, which now terminates at Clearbrook Terminal in Minnesota, adding 250,000 Bpd of capacity on the twin line between Tioga and Berthold, North Dakota and 225,000 Bpd of capacity on the twin line between Berthold and Clearbrook both with a new 24-inch diameter pipeline, in addition to adding 375,000 Bpd between Clearbrook and Superior with a 30-inch diameter pipeline.
The Sandpiper pipeline is a key pipeline that will supply numerous other downstream pipeline expansions and new construction funded by either Enbridge or us, or both, and is targeted to be in service in 2019. Find out how to take action and show your support for Sandpiper.
