Enbridge has figured out an easier way to ship crude to the U.S.

  • Enbridge (NYSE:ENB) finds a way to ship more Alberta oil to the U.S. that does not require a review similar to the one faced by the Keystone XL pipeline - switching crude from one pipeline to another before it crosses the border - as the State Department OKs the company to move ahead with its cross-border Alberta Clipper project under authority granted by previously issued permits.
  • ENB plans to construct a link between the Alberta Clipper and the adjacent Line 3 pipeline; by transferring oil from the Clipper to Line 3 before it crosses the border and then back again after the oil is in the U.S., ENB does not need the U.S. presidential permit required for new lines.
  • The plan is drawing criticism from environmental groups opposed to new imports from Canada’s oil sands because mining and processing the fuel releases more climate-warming carbon than other types of crude.

    3 card monte to get oil from Canada into the US, even though its our largest trading partner. Doesn't make any sense.

    No problem...just quit using gasoline. A tax on gasoilne of $ 10/gal should be about right.
