Enbridge begins unused tank removals
BERTHOLD – An unused tank at its terminal just west of Berthold is coming down, according to Enbridge.
The energy transportation company says work to remove the tank began on August 12 and is expected to wrap up in the next two weeks. Enbridge also plans to remove several tanks at Beaver Lodge and the Stanley Terminal. Specific dates for the Beaver Lodge and Stanley removals have not yet been determined.
“None of the tanks have been used for storage,” Enbridge said in a prepared statement. “Their removal is a business decision. The materials will be salvaged. The removal process will not impact the environment or nearby communities.”
Enbridge has operated in the oil and gas industry in North Dakota for 70 years. The company has more than 120 employees in the state and contributed more than $440 million to North Dakota’s economy last year in capital, operating and administrative expenditures.
