Enbridge Puts On Hold Proposed Sandpiper Oil Pipeline Across Minnesota

"Enbridge Energy Partners announced Thursday it will delay its controversial proposed Sandpiper oil pipeline through northern Minnesota.

In a filing Thursday with the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, Enbridge said "it will no longer pursue the regulatory approvals necessary to construct Sandpiper in Minnesota."

The news was expected, after the Calgary-based company's investment last month in North Dakota's Bakken pipeline system, which put the future of the Sandpiper into doubt."
