Enbridge says coating repairs under way on Line 5 pipeline
“Four locations will require coating repairs where there are bare metal spots ranging from .07 to .43 square feet. The coating repairs are anticipated to take 5-10 days,” the Canadian pipeline company said on its website.
There were no integrity issues with the Line 5 pipeline and it remains safe, Enbridge added.
Line 5 ships 540,000 barrels per day of light crude oil and propane and is a critical part of Enbridge’s Mainline network, which delivers the bulk of Canadian crude exports to the United States.
