Enbridge Announces Completion of Pipeline Project

Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P. and Enbridge Income Fund announced today that the Bakken Pipeline Expansion Project, part of Enbridge's Bakken Expansion Program, is now complete and in service. The Project, undertaken by the Partnership in the United States and the Fund in Canada, reversed and expanded an existing pipeline, running from Berthold, North Dakota, to Steelman, Saskatchewan, and constructed a new 16-inch pipeline from a new terminal near Steelman to the Enbridge Pipelines Inc. mainline terminal near Cromer, Manitoba.
The Project provides 145,000 barrels per day (bpd) of capacity for growing production from the Bakken and Three Forks formations located in Montana, North Dakota, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, of which 25,000 bpd was placed in service during the first quarter of 2012. Once on the Enbridge mainline, Bakken production will have access to the multiple markets accessible from the mainline and connected pipeline systems. Firm commitments totaling 100,000 bpd have been received from anchor shippers.
