Enbridge Inc., Canada's largest pipeline company, plans a $250-million expansion of the Christina Lake lateral and terminal facility to handle increased supplies from Canadian oil sands.




The expansion will add two 375,000-barrel tanks and 26 kilometres of 30-inch diameter pipeline by the end of 2011, Calgary-based Enbridge said in a statement Thursday.


The decision to expand "provides further confirmation of the sustainable growth in oil sands production and regional pipeline infrastructure which we expect over the next decade," Patrick D. Daniel, chief executive of Enbridge, said in the statement.


The Christina Lake enhanced oil project is operated by Cenovus Energy Inc.
