Canada's Enbridge Would Acquire Spectra Energy in US$28B All-Stock Deal -  Natural Gas Intelligence
Last Wednesday August 26, we had the pleasure of a zoom presentation by Jon Eisele of Enbridge Energy. In the early 1960's Enbridge ran a short pipeline from Canada to Wisconsin to carry oil to put on barges and ships and send them via the Great Lakes to the West. Pipelines were eventually added to send crude oil to the East Coast. Natural Gas lines have been added over the years as well.
Enbridge is now working with some renewable resources including hydro and wind energy. About 25% of the crude oil, 20% of the natural gas used and 1.8 GW of power used in the United States are generated from Enbridge's energy resources.
Enbridge is a company that gives back to the communities surrounding the pipeline. 315 Jobs in Minnesota and 5.2 million in investments and grants across the Country.
Jon covered the safety measures in place for the pipelines. In 2019 Enbridge safely transported 3.9 billion barrels of oil. That is their highest rate in 70 years, and the incident rate has been declining every year because of their safety measures.
