Enbridge plans to twin 345 km Athabasca oil pipeline

Enbridge Athabasca has announced its proposal to develop a new crude oil pipeline project called the Athabasca Pipeline Twinning Project in response to increased oil production in the Kirby Lake area in Alberta.  Enbridge says that the pipeline will "generally follow" the existing Athabasca Pipeline right-of-way.  Two new pump stations will also be added.  Enbridge anticipates construction to begin in the winter of 2013/2014 and in-service by early 2015.
