Enbridge scored on the Minnesota Line 3 pipeline project

We are pleased with the decision of the Minnesota Supreme Court, and the decision of the Minnesota Supreme Court this June, which was repeatedly affirmed by the Minnesota Court of Appeals. An Enbridge spokesman told Fox Business on Wednesday. The most well-studied pipeline project in Minnesota history has overcome another hurdle.

Despite legal challenges in the Minnesota Court of Appeals and the Federal Court, the replacement in Line 3 in Minnesota has been completed and is expected to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2021.

The Enbridge Line 3 project is “driving safety and maintenance,” and will safely replace the old pipeline with more advanced coatings made of heavy metal. The company also said it had “continued respect for tribal sovereignty” by creating thousands of family-friendly construction projects and millions of dollars in environmental expenditures and tax revenues. To date, Enbridge has spent more than $ 287 million on project projects with ethnic groups, citizens, communities and contractors.

“As a result of negotiations with the tribal leadership, Line 3 has been relocated outside the Ojjiwe Bond outside the Lake Lich Band and under the protection of Chief Chi C Pewa’s Fund du Lac Band,” the spokesman said.

When the rivers dry up and scientists declare red on the planet’s code, a court ruling that says there is no environmental impact is a crime before all of us. And now it’s ready to bridge. Survival of the fittest. “

Despite Tuesday’s ruling, Line 3 protesters are holding a series of rallies in the St. Paul’s State Capitol this week, with President Biden ordering military engineers to revoke federal project licenses, including demonstrations and demonstrations on Wednesday. More than 700 protesters have been arrested or booked since construction began in Minnesota last December.
