Enbridge Inc. will apportion space by an additional 26 percent on its crude-oil pipelines 6A, 14 and 62 for December deliveries, Jennifer Varey, a company spokeswoman, said in an e-mail.
The move comes because of high nominations from shippers and temporary capacity restrictions in Line 6A, Varey said. Apportionments are made when nominations exceed capacity.
The previously announced apportionment of 27 percent on volume destined downstream of Superior, Wisconsin, still applies and the additional 26 percent applies to lines 6A, 14 and 62 only, the Calgary, Canada-based company said.
Enbridge system inventories of crude oil rose 8.5 percent after a power failure on its Line 6A reduced rates, according to bulletins sent to shippers yesterday.
Overall system inventories rose 1.26 million barrels to 16.1 million on Nov. 30 from 14.9 million on Nov. 25, the day of an electrical failure at the company’s Lockport, Illinois, terminal. The 670,000-barrel-a-day pipeline runs between Superior and Griffith, Indiana.
