Enbridge has replaced a 461-foot section of new oil pipeline in Michigan after it fell into a ditch when a crane holding it toppled on its side.
Last week marked the third anniversary of the largest inland oil spill in US history. On July 25th, 2010 a 41-year old Enbridge pipeline in Michigan tore open spewing over three million litres of diluted tar sands bitumen or dilbit from Alberta into the Kalamazoo River and the surrounding area.
Security around the Enbridge 6B easement will be increased due to “safety concerns” after 12 people were arrested Monday during a protest at the site, a company spokesman said.
The government of Canadian British Columbia has said 'No' to Enbridge's West Coast tar sands pipeline project, the Northern Gateway pipeline.
Arkansas' Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has contracted out the "independent analysis of the cleanup" of the ExxonMobil Pegasus tar sands pipeline spill to Witt O'Brien's, a firm with a history of oil spill cover-ups, a DeSmogBlog investigation reveals.
Native American tribes band together in solidarity to take direct action to stop what they say is an illegal pipeline on their land, built by Enbridge.
