State Supreme Court Stepping into Pipeline Battle

The battle over the northern crude oil pipeline has now reached the Minnesota Supreme Court. Enbridge and state regulators are ordering an environmental impact statement for the proposed Sandpiper project. If the Supreme Court agrees, it could mean further uncertainty and delay of the US$2.6 billion project for Enbridge. If it declines, the appellate panel’s ruling would stand and the pipeline could begin construction.
