Proposed ND oil pipeline could be scrapped

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- A Colorado company says its proposed $650 million pipeline project that would move 150,000 barrels of North Dakota crude daily to a hub in Minnesota is at risk of being scrapped.

Durango-based High Prairie Pipeline alleges Enbridge Energy Partners has refused to allow a connection to the Canadian company's terminal at Clearbrook, Minn.

High Prairie wants to force Enbridge to take North Dakota crude shipped by the Colorado company and has taken its complaint to federal regulators.

An Enbridge official says the company's mainline is running at capacity and it does not have room for the additional crude.
