Enbridge is pleased by the State of Michigan's decision to drop its case to enforce its November 2020 notice of revocation and termination related to Line 5.
Enbridge will continue to pursue its case in federal court to affirm federal jurisdiction over Line 5.
Earlier this year, Canada invoked the 1977 Transit Pipeline Treaty. U.S. Federal Judge Janet Neff in a jurisdictional order took note that 'the federal issues in this case are under consideration at the highest levels of this country's government.'
Enbridge will continue to deliver safe, reliable and affordable energy to Michigan and the region. We will continue to pursue the Great Lakes Tunnel to house a replacement section of Line 5 so that it can continue to serve the region safely.
