Pipeline stories

The Anishinaabe have always said that there's a choice between two paths. One is well-worn but scorched and the other is not well-worn and it's green. We're always told to be arduous in our choice upon which path to walk...I feel like at this moment in time, that's where we are. And this pipeline is really about that moment of what we want to do - for the water and for the future. So this story and this film...is up to date, showing the commitment of people on the frontlines and the brutality that Enbridge has resorted to to put in a pipeline.

Our reporter, Scott Hall, recently looked back at the crude oil pipeline rupture that occurred near Grand Rapids in March of 1991.  The oil spilled onto a wetland and through a storm sewer to the Prairie River – about one point seven million gallons in all.   

Tuesday March 7th, 2017 was the U.S State Department's only public meeting on the proposed Line 67 (formerly known as the Alberta Clipper) .  Enbridge needs to get Presidential approval to cross from Canada into the U.S.   According to Enbridge, there's an increased need for oil and with Line 67 they will be able to transport 890,000 gallons of oil a day instead of 500,000 safely.  This oil will move into Enbridge's new Line 3 along this route

Barry Simonson is the Director of Line 3 Pipeline Execution for Enbridge Energy and he recently talked with us about their expansion plans for transportation across northern MN.  Enbridge has had oil pipelines for over 60 years and they say that because of demand for increased oil and energy consumption what they currently operate can not adequately accommodate needs of their customers safely.

Earlier today Scott Hall reported on an informational meeting held by Enbridge Energy regarding the Line 3 pipeline.

The Canadian oil pipeline company, Enbridge Energy, wants to build another pipeline across northern MN.The company currently operates six lines that carry oil from Clearbrook - along a route that roughly follows highway 2.  The lines deliver oil to refineries in Superior, Wisconsin and beyond.
