UPDATE 1-Enbridge to make all scheduled October deliveries

* Will make all scheduled deliveries this month

* No estimate for how long 6A volumes reduced

* Current capacity of Line 6A cut to 493,750 bpd

CALGARY, Alberta, Oct 13 (BestGrowthStock) – Enbridge Inc (ENB.TO: )
said on Wednesday it expects to make all its scheduled oil
deliveries this month despite cutting back the capacity of its
massive Line 6A to complete maintenance work.

The company, whose pipelines carry the lion’s share of
Canadian crude exports to the United States, said it still has
no estimate of when it will complete work on the line, which
carries crude from Superior, Wisconsin, to Griffith, Indiana.

The company shut the line on Friday after placing a sleeve
over a portion of the pipe and restarted service late Saturday.
However it cut back the amount of oil flowing through the pipe
from 670,000 barrels per day to 493,750 while it completes
maintenance work.

Despite lowering volumes on the line, Enbridge does not
expect to miss any scheduled crude deliveries to U.S. Midwest
refiners.

“Even with this reduced pressure, we expect to be able to
meet scheduled deliveries in October,” Jennifer Varey, a
spokeswoman for the company, said in an email.

Line 6A has now been shut twice in two months. The pipe was
shut between Sept 9-17 after leaking more than 6,000 barrels of
oil in Illinois.

Enbridge said it will not know what its delivery
requirements for next month will be until shippers begin
requesting space on its line for November.
