Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline will go through Nebraska, and a deal between the two states could allow Enbridge to obtain $1.5 billion in federal environmental approvals to build the line, according to a report by the Energy and Natural Resources Research Institute (ENRI).
The Nebraska deal would allow Enpass to get the state to approve a $1 billion environmental review process for the pipeline, the report said.
Nebraska has already rejected Enpass’ Northern Gateway proposal, citing concerns over the impact of the pipeline on wetlands, wetlands and fish habitat.
Enbridge and Nebraska have yet to sign an agreement.
The deal could be in place by mid-December, according the report, which cited a state official as saying the Nebraska Environmental Review Committee (NEERC) had completed its work on the NEERC’s environmental impact statement for the project.
The NEERP is a federal agency that reviews the impact on communities of projects that could impact their environment, according ENRI.
ENBRIDGE’s Northern and Southern segments of the Northern and Northern Gateway pipelines will carry Alberta crude oil, as well as refined natural gas from North Dakota to export to Canada, as the company seeks to expand its oil-by-rail pipeline network.
Encore Energy has already begun construction on a new pipeline from Canada to Illinois, and the pipeline is scheduled to be operational by late 2019, according a statement from the company.
