Enbridge Energy, a Calgary, Alberta, based company, is proposing the construction of an oil pipeline through McKinley, Bull Moose, Pine River and Barclay townships in Cass County.
The proposed line, called the Sandpiper, would stretch 610 miles from Beaver Lodge, N.D., to Superior, Wis. The proposed route of the buried pipeline follows already established highline corridors in many places and crosses Highway 371 near mile marker 67 north of Pine River. The line would be a minimum of 24 inches wide and could transport 225,000 barrels of petroleum products per day.
