“Canada’s Enbridge To Resume East Leg Of Line 5 Pipeline”

“Enbridge Inc said on Wednesday it will restart the east segment of its Line 5 pipeline in the Straits of Mackinac after receiving authorization from the U.S. federal pipeline regulator.

In a statement reut.rs/2R7zZQt, the Canadian pipeline operator said a review by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration did not identify any integrity issue around a displaced anchor and had no objection to restarting the east leg.

“The decision to allow the restart of the east segment of Line 5 is very positive for the many residents and businesses in Michigan and the Great Lakes region who depend on the energy Line 5 delivers,” said Vern Yu, Executive Vice President and President of Liquids Pipelines at Enbridge.”
