Biden administration confirms it’s considering shut down of part of Line 5 oil and gas pipeline


The Biden administration is looking at potentially shutting down an existing segment of the Line 5 oil and gas pipeline that serves the Midwest, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters on Monday, confirming reports on the issue last week. “The Army Corps of Engineers is preparing an environmental impact statement on Line 5 and the construction of that replacement line,” she said. “The EIS will help inform any additional action or position the U.S. will be taking on the replacement of Line 5.” Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has sought to shut down that segment of pipeline amid concerns about the potential for a spill in the Straits of Mackinac, putting her at odds with Canadian energy pipeline company Enbridge ENB, -2.15% and Canada’s government.
