Enbridge says regulator's corrective order is nothing unusual
Enbridge is responding to a regulator's report made in the wake of a pipeline rupture in Wisconsin.
The Calgary operator is completing repair work in the wake of a corrective order issued by the US Department Transportation, refusing to allow operations to resume on Line 14.
And told Fort McMurray News in a statement that they plan to present American regulators a new response plan today.
The regulators said last Friday's 1,200 barrel leak, nearly two years to the day after a ruptured Enbridge line contaminated Michigan's Kalamazoo River, was unacceptable.
Adding that management will have to demonstrate why they should be allowed to continue to operate the link without either a significant overhaul or a complete pipeline replacement.
But the Calgary-based operator said, the delay is nothing unusual and environmental safety remains their top priority.
