Enbridge Says It Recovered Most of the Oil From Damaged Pipe

Enbridge Energy Partners (EEP) drained most of the oil from a damaged pipeline that had disrupted imports from Canada.

The 34-inch pipe in Romeoville, Ill., 30 miles southwest of Chicago, is still shut, with no indication of when it will reopen, Bloomberg News reported. Enbridge said it collected about 6,050 of the 6,100 barrels that leaked.

"Enbridge's schedulers are working with shippers to divert crude oil volumes to other available pipelines and storage facilities," the company said.

The line runs from Superior, Wis., to Griffith, Ind. It can carry 670,000 barrels of oil a day and can supply more than one-third of oil imported from Canada by Midwestern refiners. The pipe was shut on Sept. 9 after it started leaking oil.
