Proposed pipeline would move ND crude to Wisconsin

Minot, ND (AP) — A Houston-based petroleum company is proposing a pipeline that would transport North Dakota crude to Superior, Wis.

Enbridge officials said the Sandpiper Pipeline would cover more than 500 miles and could move about 225,000 barrels a day. The company’s capacity in North Dakota is 275,000 barrels a day.

The pipeline would run from the Beaver Lodge area south of Tioga to the main Enbridge terminal in Superior.

Bob Steede, general manager of Enbridge Pipelines North Dakota, told The Forum newspaper ( that the pipeline would expand export capacity and increase market opportunities.
Steede said the pipeline would be the company’s largest project in North Dakota. If approved, the earliest it could go into service would be late 2015.

Enbridge operates about 50,000 miles of pipelines in North America.
