The first tranche of an additional 100,000 barrels per day of new pipeline capacity will be available to embattled domestic oil producers as the Canadian portion of the Line 3 replacement project is placed into service.

Enbridge Inc. has been filling the $5.3-billion Canadian portion of its Line 3 replacement project over the course of November and will place the line into service on Sunday, according to the Financial Post.

That segment will add 10,000 bpd of pipeline capacity out of Western Canada at a time when every little bit helps alleviate strains on a chock-full export system. In addition, Enbridge expects to open up another 90,000 bpd of capacity by the end of December through optimization projects throughout its oil export network.
