En­bridge, an en­ergy trans­port­a­tion com­pany based in Al­berta, Canada, has filed an ap­plic­a­tion to build a pipeline that would bring oil from North Dakota’s Bakken form­a­tion to Min­nesota and Wis­con­sin, the As­so­ci­ated Press re­ports.

The North Dakota Pub­lic Ser­vice Com­mis­sion is re­view­ing the pro­pos­al and in­tends to hold pub­lic hear­ings in areas of the state where the pipeline would pass to so­li­cit pub­lic com­ment on the pro­ject.

If En­bridge wins ap­prov­al for the pro­ject, it would be­come the largest pipeline yet to trans­port oil out of the Bakken, where more than half of daily oil pro­duc­tion is moved by rail due to a lack of ex­ist­ing pipeline in­fra­struc­ture.
