The Enbridge Bakken Pipeline (Enbridge Bakken) transports light crude oil from the Bakken region in North Dakota to the Enbridge Mainline near Cromer, MB. The system in Canada consists of the former Enbridge Westspur Line EX-02, which was reactivated and runs 34 km from the U.S. border to the Enbridge Westspur Steelman Terminal, and a new 123 km pipeline between Steelman and Cromer, MB. Enbridge Bakken was approved by the Board in December 2011 and began operations in April 2013.[2]
