Alberta Clipper Project Final Environmental Impact Statement, 2009

Bureau of Energy Resources

Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership (Enbridge) applied to the U.S. Department of State (DOS) for a Presidential Permit for construction, connection, operation, and maintenance of facilities at the U.S./Canada border for a proposed pipeline and associated facilities for importation of heavy crude oil from Canada, and was granted a Presidential Permit on August 3, 2009. As the lead federal agency for the environmental review of the proposed Alberta Clipper Project (proposed Project), DOS prepared this Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) consistent with the requirements of NEPA and the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations for implementing NEPA (40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] 1500–1508) and DOS’ own implementing regulations at 22 CFR Part 161.

In 2012, Enbridge applied for a new Presidential Permit for this pipeline, now called the Line 67 pipeline. Department is preparing a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS), consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), as part of its review of Enbridge’s 2012 Presidential Permit application. The SEIS will supplement the analysis completed in the 2009 EIS provided below. For more information on Enbridge’s 2012 Presidential Permit application, please visit .
