Enbridge to Provide Additional Facilities at Cheecham Terminal for Surmont 
Phase 2 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Enbridge Inc.
(TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB) announced today that it has entered into a
terminal services agreement with ConocoPhillips Canada Resources Corp
and Total E&P Canada Ltd. (the ConocoPhillips Surmont Partnership) to
expand existing infrastructure at the Enbridge Cheecham Terminal to
accommodate incremental bitumen production from Surmont's Phase 2
expansion. The approximately $0.3 billion expansion is expected to
come into service in two phases through the fourth quarter 2014 and
first quarter of 2015. 
Enbridge will construct two new 450,000 barrel blend tanks and
convert an existing tank from blend to diluent service, install
receipt and distribution manifolds to facilitate transfers to
Enbridge's Waupisoo Pipeline and upgrade associated measurement
equipment. Enbridge brought a full expansion of the Waupisoo Pipeline
into service in 2012 to, in part, serve the requirements of the
growing production from the Surmont oil sands project. 
"We're pleased to further our relationship with the ConocoPhillips
Surmont Partnership by delivering timely and critical terminaling and
transportation services that support the continued expansion of their
oil sands projects," said Stephen J. Wuori, President, Liquids
Pipelines and Major Projects. "We continue to work closely with our
customers to develop innovative energy infrastructure solutions that
meet their current and future needs, that utilize existing
infrastructure and energy corridors wherever possible, and that can
be built and operated safely, reliably and with respect for
communities and the environment." 
Enbridge's Regional Oil Sands System At-a-Glance:  
Enbridge is the leading pipeline operator in the Fort McMurray to
Edmonton/Hardisty corridor and well positioned to tie-in new oil sand
developments to mainline pipelines and increase capacity for current
customers. Enbridge's Regional Oil Sands Infrastructure includes the
Athabasca and Waupisoo pipeline systems, which currently connect six
producing oil sands projects, and which, through commercially secured
expansions, will connect nine producing oil sands projects by 2015. A
map is available at www.enbridge.com.  
Athabasca Pipeline: 


 
--  540-kilometre (335-mile) pipeline in operation since March 1999 
--  Annual capacity of up to 570,000 barrels per day of crude oil (depending
    on crude viscosity) from the Athabasca and Cold Lake regions of Alberta,
    south to Hardisty, Alberta 
--  Enbridge Athabasca is constructing a new crude oil pipeline project,
    called the Athabasca Pipeline Twinning Project (the "Project"), to
    provide transportation service for increased oil production in the Kirby
    Lake area.

 
Waupisoo Pipeline:  


 
--  385-kilometre (237-mile) pipeline system in operation since June 2008 
--  Annual capacity of up to 600,000 bpd of crude oil (depending on crude
    viscosity) from Enbridge's Cheecham Terminal to Edmonton 
--  Enbridge is also constructing a new crude oil pipeline project, called
    the Woodland Extension, to provide Cheecham to Edmonton transportation
    service for increasing oil sands production.

 
Tankage: 


 
--  Largest operator of contract storage facilities at the Hardisty hub with
    the 3.1 million barrel Hardisty Caverns storage facility, plus the 7.5
    million barrel Hardisty Contract Terminal surface storage facility
    (owned by Enbridge Income Fund) 
--  More than 4.4 million barrels of operational storage associated with the
    Waupisoo and Athabasca pipelines and laterals
