Enbridge to Connect JACOS Hangingstone Project to its Regional System 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/26/13 -- Enbridge Inc.
(TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB) today announced that it will construct
facilities and provide transportation services to the Japan Canada
Oil Sands Limited (JACOS) Hangingstone Oil Sands Project (the
Hangingstone Project). JACOS and Nexen Energy ULC, a wholly owned
subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, are partners in the project, which is
operated by JACOS. Enbridge and JACOS have entered into a long term
agreement for transportation services from Cheecham to Edmonton on
Enbridge's regional infrastructure. Commercial terms for the
incremental facilities to connect Hangingstone to Cheecham have been
agreed to but execution remains subject to finalization of the
definitive agreements which are imminent.  
The newly constructed pipeline will have the capacity to transport
40,000 barrels per day (bpd) of diluted bitumen produced at the
Hangingstone Project to the Enbridge terminal in Cheecham, Alberta.
First oil from the Hangingstone Project is expected in early 2016,
with initial volumes of 18,000 bpd.  
"Enbridge is pleased to enter into this agreement with JACOS and
Nexen, which provides further confirmation of the sustainable growth
in oil sands production," said Stephen J. Wuori, President, Liquids
Pipelines and Major Projects. "This project, the tenth to connect
into our infrastructure in the Athabasca region, will contribute to
our ongoing strategy of connecting new oil sands projects and
expanding access for production growth from the region." 
Pending regulatory approvals, the execution of the definitive
agreements, and stakeholder consultation, Enbridge plans to construct
and operate a 50-kilometre (31-mile), 12-inch lateral pipeline to
connect the Hangingstone Project to Enbridge's regional system at
Cheecham. The scope also includes an optional 8-inch diluent line to
transport diluent to the Hangingstone Project. The initial term of
the transportation agreement is 20 years, with JACOS and Nexen having
the right to extend the agreement in successive five-year terms. 
Enbridge is committed to timely and meaningful dialogue with all
stakeholders, including shareholders, customers, and employees,
Aboriginal and Native American communities, governments, regulators,
and landowners, among others, regarding all of our projects,
operations and activities. Enbridge will ensure this project is
constructed in an environmentally responsible manner with a focus on
the safety of our employees and the community.
