US Govt Prohibits Enbridge from Restarting Wisconsin Pipeline

RIGZONE -- CALGARY, Alberta - U.S. regulators prohibited Enbridge Inc. from restarting an oil pipeline in Wisconsin, saying the pipeline company must perform additional tests.

Enbridge's Line 14 pipeline leaked about 1,200 barrels of oil near Grand Marsh, Wis. on Friday, from the same pipeline system that suffered a catastrophic leak two years earlier in neighboring Michigan.

The U.S. Department of Transportation issued a corrective order against Enbridge for the Wisconsin spill, saying the Calgary energy infrastructure company must conduct new tests on the integrity of the pipeline as well as bring in an independent expert to investigate the company's pipeline maintenance plan.

I wonder if any of the politcians that blame the oil companies for high prices get what they add to the price we pay - yep unfortunately I think they do - and they just don't care

Enbridge skimps on maintenance and then makes regulators look like the bad guys for not letting them restart their leaky pipelines. Maximum profit for minimum investment is their mission statement.

You DID see the bit in the article about the pipeline leaking, right? And that it was NOT the first occasion the pipeline leaked?
