Pipeline has been shut down since November

The Mayor of Norman Wells is concerned that if work on Enbridge’s Line 21 pipeline does not get underway soon, the oil fields near the town may not return to production.
The pipeline, which connects oil fields in Norman Wells to Zama, Alberta, was shut down months ago, and work to repair the pipeline has yet to be approved. The line was shut down last November due to concerns about ground instability at a section of the line near Fort Simpson.
Construction was expected to have been underway by June.
