Enbridge Line 3 Replacement, Spreads 8 and 9

Brandon and Morden, Manitoba

A key project for Canadian oil production, the project is being carried out by SA Energy Group – a 50/50 joint venture partnership between longtime collaborators Aecon and Robert B. Somerville. The project involves constructing 92.2 km of pipeline in the area of Brandon, Manitoba for Spread 8, and constructing 96.5 km of pipeline near Morden, Manitoba for Spread 9, extending to the Canada-U.S. border. This contract was not a new venture for SA Energy Group. Back in 2017, the JV successfully delivered Spreads 3 and 4 (totaling 261 kilometres of new pipeline) between Rosetown and Regina, Saskatchewan. Upon completion of the work, SA Energy Group was well positioned for the opportunity to pursue additional work on Line 3.

Enbridge’s Line 3 Replacement Program is the largest capital project in the company’s history. It involves the replacement of approximately 1,070 kilometres of crude oil and liquids pipeline between Hardisty, Alberta, and Gretna, Manitoba. Once it is completed and in service in 2019, the new pipeline will transport up to 760,000 barrels per day of light, medium, and heavy crude. The project was initiated by Enbridge to better serve current and future petroleum demand in North America and to reduce the frequency and magnitude of ongoing maintenance activities while ensuring continued safe operation of Line 3.
