I wonder if the ND Pipeline folks have adjusted their spreadsheet for this?
WASHINGTON – Federal regulators have rejected a request by Enbridge Inc. for the go-ahead to move forward with a proposed $2.5 billion oil pipeline expansion in North Dakota.
The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission issued the ruling on Friday.
A key sticking point is Enbridge's bid to set the rate structure that it could charge to transport oil through the pipeline.
The commission noted that it has not supported Enbridge's proposed rate.
It also said Enbridge has yet to present an alternative that the commission can approve as fair, reasonable and in the public interest.
nah, you do not wonder since you could have just gone to look at their webpage....right?
Or if you really wanted to know you could have contacted them....right?

You don't even see the discrepancy in the numbers you posted above, do you?
