ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Enbridge Energy says it wants to build a second major crude oil pipeline across northern Minnesota.

The proposed pipeline would replace a 1960s-era line that has ruptured repeatedly. The Calgary, Alberta-based company says it intends to replace the entire pipeline, known as Line 3, that carries Canadian oil from Alberta to a storage terminal in Superior, Wisconsin. The pipeline operates at reduced capacity because of long-standing concerns about its integrity.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/1wD8ziR) reports Enbridge asked the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission to approve its plans to contact landowners near the 338-mile-long corridor.

Enbridge also asked Minnesota regulators to reconsider their recent order that stretches out by a year the review of its other crude oil pipeline project - the proposed Sandpiper line to carry North Dakota oil across Minnesota.
