CONTENT: Article

For well over 60 years, the Canadian Mainline system has been the backbone of Enbridge’s Liquids Pipelines operations. Stretching from Edmonton to Gretna, Man., where it crosses the international border, the Canadian Mainline system allows Enbridge to transport 65 per cent of Western Canada’s crude exports.
