In Alberta, Canada, energy company Enbridge has opened its CA$600 million (379.6 million) contract-oil storage terminal at Hardisty, southeast of Edmonton.
Calgary-based Enbridge moves two-thirds of the oil in Canada, about 2 million barrels a day. And the Hardisty terminal, about 160 kilometres southeast of Edmonton, is second in size only to its operations in Cushing, Oklahoma, US.
Enbridge officially added 19 tanks to its existing 10-tank main-line operations. The new tanks, with a capacity of up to 530,000 barrels each, hold a total of 7.5 million barrels of oil.
