Enbridge Pipelines Retains EIC for Hydrocarbon Remedial Evaluation


May 2006, Grand Rapids, MN: Enbridge Pipelines, L.L.C. retained EIC to evaluate liquid phase hydrocarbon (LPH) recovery potential from the subsurface at a site in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.  Enbridge Pipelines is owned and operated by Enbridge Energy Partners, L.P. of Houston, Texas.  EIC will utilize its patented non-aqueous extraction technique (NETTM) to conduct recovery-recharge tests in five monitoring wells.  Based on the results of the tests, EIC will determine if LPH recovery is sustainable.  If recovery is sustainable, Enbridge Pipelines will have the option of utilizing the NETTM systems for recovery of LPH at 99% oil-water ratios.  This technique ensures that the Enbridge can reach remedial end points rapidly and at a fraction of the cost normally expended with conventional remediation technologies such as pumping systems, vapor extraction, and multiphase extractions systems.
