The pipeline construction is planned to be completed by April 2013 and in service by May 2013.This pipeline will connect the existing Enbridge Terminal near Edmonton to the existing Plains Nipisi Terminal in northwest Alberta and will parallel existing pipelines for about 88 per cent of the route. The pipeline will be owned and operated by Plains and will supply condensate and butane to heavy oil production areas near Nipisi.- Lucie Roy Photo
