Saskatchewan joining Alberta and Ontario in push to keep Enbridge Line 5 operating

Saskatchewan Energy Minister Bronwyn Eyre and her counterparts in Alberta and Ontario are joining forces to try and get the state of Michigan to reverse a decision that will see Enbridge’s Line 5 be closed next month,

Eyre says Line 5 is a crucial energy lifeline for Saskatchewan and for western Canadian oil and gas producers and that shutting the line down would have a serious impact on Canada’s economic relationship with the U.S.

Around 70 percent of Saskatchewan’s total oil production goes through Line 5 which runs from Edmonton through Saskatchewan to Superior, Wisconsin. It moves up to 540,000 barrels per day of light crude oil and natural gas liquids.
