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 heavy1 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.
