Duluth, Superior mayors back Enbridge pipeline projects

DULUTH, Minn. — The mayors of Duluth and Superior, Wis., are adding their support to Enbridge Energy’s proposed pipeline projects planned for the region.

Duluth’s Don Ness and Superior’s Bruce Hagen have scheduled a news conference this morning “to show support for the proposed Enbridge expansion projects and express the importance of benefits to not just Superior, but the whole Twin Ports.”

Superior is the hub of an elaborate network of pipelines and massive storage tanks for vast amounts of North Dakota and Canadian crude oil.

The company says it paid $34 million in Minnesota property taxes alone in 2011. The projectes include the Sandpiper, Line No. 3 and Alberta Clipper pipelines.
