Project Details

  • Operator: Enbridge[1]
  • Current capacity: 400,000 barrels per day
  • Proposed capacity:800,000
  • Length: 522 kilometers
  • Status: Operating
  • Start Year: 2012

Background

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 bpd.[2] 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 bpd, with an ability to increase upwards to 800,000 bpd.[3] 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.[4]
