In North Dakota Enbridge has proposed the Beaver Lodge Loop Project, which will involve the construction of a 12 or 16 inch diameter looping pipeline along the existing Enbridge North Dakota System from the existing Beaver Lodge Station near Tioga to Berthold. The looping pipeline is expected to increase the capacity along the 72 km segment to approximately 315,000 bbl/d of oil.
Tankage and new pump stations will also be constructed and the pipeline project will be undertaken by Enbridge Pipelines (North Dakota) LLC a subsidiary of Enbridge Energy Partners. The project is expected to be completed by the first quarter 2013.
The SORTI and Dunn projects will consist of the construction of a new 8 or 10 inch gathering pipeline system to expand the Enbridge North Dakota System, starting approximately 72 km south of its Beaver Lodge Station.
The project also consists of two new stations and the associated work to prepare for two new truck facilities. One new station will be located near Keene, North Dakota, and the second, Croff Station, will be located near the Dunn/McKenzie County border.
The proposed expansion of Line 26/EX-02, including added facilities in North Dakota, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, will include an expansion of the US portion of the Portal Link (Line 26) by EEP, and the construction of two new pumping stations and enhancements of the pipeline north of Berthold.
The Canadian portion of the Portal Link (Line EX-02) will be extended with the construction of a new 121 km, 16 inch diameter pipeline from Steelman, Saskatchewan, to the Enbridge terminal at Cromer, Manitoba.
