Two Minnesota oil refiners don't like the idea of a surcharge for oil shipments to pay for a pipeline to Superior, Wis., that they won't use.

As a land owner that has 6 Enbridge lines on my property ( 5 leaving and 1 return line ) and 3 from the Koch terminal, I wonder if we are using the oil in the US or is it going elsewhere? If a proposed project is in the works the land owner can never find out any information. It would help to be informed for ones farming practices. Upon the pipeline being put in and if the land is not put back as it was, we seem to have to call time after time to try get it resolved.

New refinery in North Dskota. Keep our oil in the US.

Flint Hill is a wing of Koch Industries. I'm not surprised at all by this development.

I don't get why MN has to pay anything if the terminal is in Superior, WI.....I'm not understanding how this pipeline benefits MN.

Better to keep US oil in the US making us energy independant as the president suggested was a positive.

I totally agree. I don't want to pay a fee or a tax for things I do not benefit from. We could begin with taxes but it is off topic and would take all day. Too many agencies, too many regulations that make no sense. I am not talking about environmental. A few months ago excel was forced to continue subsidizing solar energy,against their will. How about as a little budget and capitalism test we stop all subsidies to everyone that hasn't earned them and businesses such as energy, including green energy.let the chips fall where they may. Let the strongest survive. People can find cbuches and charities for support, of course they would have to do some WORK . Businesses that fail- so be it.
