Continued: Pipeline poses conflict with potential copper mine

The pipeline, which would be buried, is designed to initially bring 225,000 barrels of oil per day into an expanded terminal at Clearbrook, Minn., and 375,000 barrels of oil per day from there to Superior. The Minnesota portion of the ­project will cost $1.2 billion, create 1,500 temporary pipeline jobs with work starting in the fourth quarter of 2014 and ending in early 2016.

Marathon Petroleum Corp. will be an anchor shipper on the line, and fund 37.5 percent of the construction cost. Enbridge is soliciting binding commitments from other shippers in an open season that ends in January.
