Woodland Oil Pipeline, also called Enbridge Line 49/70 Oil Pipeline, is an oil pipeline in Alberta, Canada. It is part of the Enbridge Pipeline System.[1]


The original pipeline runs from the Kearl Oil Sands Project near Fort McMurray, Alberta to Enrbidge's Cheecham Terminal.[1]

Project Details

  • Owner: Enbridge[1]
  • Capacity: 200,000 barrels per day[2]
  • Length: 85 miles (137 kilometers)[2]
  • Diameter: 36-inches[1]
  • Status: Operating[3]
  • Start Year: 2012[3]


In 2012, Enbridge constructed the 137 kilometer Woodland Oil Pipeline from Kearl Oil sands to its Cheecham terminal, which possessed a capacity of 200,000 barrels per day.[2]

Expansion Project

In 2013, Enbridge began construction of the Woodland Extension Pipeline from the Cheecham terminal to Edmonton, Alberta. The 385 kilometer extension measures 36-inches in diameter and would have an initial capacity of 400,000 barrels per day, with an ability to increase upwards to 800,000 bpd.[4] The pipeline extension project, which cost an estimated $1.3 billion, will effectively twin Enbridge's Waupisoo Pipeline. The new pipeline also consists of two new pumping stations, one at Roundhill station, and another at Cheecham terminal.[3]

Expansion Project Location

The expansion extended the pipeline from Enrbidge's Cheecham Terminal to Enbridge's Edmonton Terminal.
