Many Americans have heard of the Keystone XL pipeline. Few have heard of Line 61

Operated by Canadian energy firm Enbridge, Line 61 currently runs 560,000 barrels of tar sands oil a day between Superior, Wisconsin — where it connects to some of Enbridge’s Canadian oil lines — and Pontiac, Illinois. This year, however, Enbridge hopes to continue the expansion of the line’s capacity until it can eventually carry up to 1.2 million barrels per day — a 30 percent higher capacity than Keystone.
