The Enbridge Line 66 Oil Pipeline, also known as the Line 61 Twin Oil Pipeline, was a proposed oil pipeline in the United States.[1] As of 2021, there had been no evident progress made on its development in over four years so it is considered cancelled.


The pipeline was proposed to run from Wisconsin to Illinois, United States.[1]

The Sierra Club reports that Enbridge successfully lobbied Wisconsin to change eminent domain laws in 2015, and that in 2016 and 2017 they presented more detailed plans to investors on Line 66's implementation.[3]
