On February 10, 2017, the U.S. Department of State (DOS) opened a public comment period on the draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for Enbridge’s Alberta Clipper (Line 67) Expansion. The draft SEIS was prepared by DOS as part of its review of Enbridge’s Presidential Permit application to transport 800,000 barrels per day (bpd) on the existing, three-mile segment of the Line 67 pipeline that crosses the U.S.-Canada border. The draft SEIS concluded that there are no significant adverse environmental impacts associated with this project.
Allowing Enbridge to transport 800,000 bpd across the international border on Line 67 is a safe and efficient way to maintain America’s energy security, reduce reliance on imports from unstable nations and continue to generate additional economic activity in communities where pipelines have been operating for more than 65 years.
The DOS is accepting comments on the draft SEIS until March 27, 2017. I invite you to participate in this public comment process and help make sure decision makers consider the important benefits of the Line 67 Expansion.

If you have questions or need more information, please contact Enbridge at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit MinnesotaProjects.enbridge.com. Your voice is important. I hope you will join the Chamber’s leadership in demonstrating support for this needed investment.
