Oil Pipeline Expected To Be Done By Mid-2014

Posted: Updated:

FLANAGAN, Ill. (AP) - A 600-mile pipeline extending from Illinois to Oklahoma could be ready by this summer.

That's according to a report (http://bit.ly/1gdXOiF ) by WNIJ Radio.

The pipeline belonging to Enbridge Inc. of Calgary, Alberta will carry tar sands from Flanagan, Ill. near Pontiac to Enbridge's terminal in Cushing, Okla. It also travels through Missouri and Kansas.

From Oklahoma, the oil could be moved through existing lines to Gulf Coast refineries. The Flanagan South pipeline runs parallel to another Enbridge route that's already in place.

Construction began in August 2013.

A spokeswoman for Enbridge says work is Illinois is mostly complete. But this winter's bitter temperatures slowed down work putting topsoil back over the pipeline in some areas.

Still the project is set to be done in mid-2014.
