“Meetings Set for Residents Along Enbridge Oil Pipeline Route”

Construction starts in October, and public hearings have been set to inform local residents near the pipeline’s path.

Public hearings are scheduled in Drumright and Pawhuska next week to discuss the final Oklahoma leg of the Flanagan South pipeline which will travel from terminals near Chicago to the Cushing oil hub. The 36-inch, 600-mile Flanagan South will run Canadian oil sands and northern U.S. crude. It will run mostly adjacent to the company’s existing 22- to 24-inch Spearhead Pipeline. Together the pipelines will have a capacity to transport 775,000 barrels a day of sweet crude from the Bakken formation in Montana and North Dakota and the oil sands of western Canada once complete in mid-2014.
