Construction of the 78 Pipeline Project kicked of the line recently in Illinois and Indian. For more information on this Project please follow the link below :
November 12, 2015
Construction activities are winding down on the Line 78 Pipeline Project and next step necessary to bring the pipeline into service is to fill the pipeline with oil. We anticipate this activity will take place during the week of November 16, beginning at Flanagan Terminal near Pontiac , ILL. and ending at Enbridge’s Terminal in Griffith, Ind.
We want to inform you of activities associated with line fill, as you may notice additional crew members and /or vehicles in the area and at road crossings near the pipeline route . Crews will be working around the clock monitoring all line fill activities. Mechanical tools with tracking instruments (or “small pigs”) will run through the pipe in front of the oil, transmitting data that will help crew members verify passage and timing.
Right-of-way monitoring will be ongoing 24 hours per day through completion of line fill activities. Aerial patrols will also monitor progress. Upon Completion, crews will perform a series of operational procedures to confirm that all valves and equipment are working properly.
For the safety of those who work and live in the surrounding area and our crews, please drive with caution as vehicles will be parked along road crossings. As Always, if you observe anything out of the ordinary near the pipeline , call our emergency response line at 1-800-858-5253, which is answered 24 hours a day.
As construction and line fill activities come to close in coming weeks, the workforce along the right -of -way will be reduced. however, restoration activities will continue after the pipeline is operational . If you Have any questions regarding line fill or other Line 78- related activities, please contact the Enbridge Line 78 Pipeline Project team at 1-855-714-8372.
