Company warns of shortages and price spikes if Whitmer shuts down major pipeline

At least a third of the country recently experienced what it’s like when a major oil and gas pipeline is shut down — an event that triggered a scary situation where gas was scarce, which quickly led to hoarding and skyrocketing prices.

That’s why it’s absolutely perplexing that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) is actively attempting to shut down a major pipeline that carries roughly 540,000 barrels of natural gas and oil products into Canada for refinement into propane. Whitmer ordered the revocation of the easement of the Line 5 pipeline last year, which is partly underwater, citing mostly environmental concerns, according to the Washington Times

It’s only because Enbridge, the Canadian-baed owner of the critical pipeline, challenged Whitmer’s order and said it should be decided in federal court that the pipeline is still operating. Top officials from the company warned of a similar situation to the Colonial pipeline shutdown, should Whitmer be successful in shutting it down.

“The cyberattack that triggered an unplanned, temporary closure brings to the forefront what consumers could face if Gov. Whitmer is successful in her efforts to revoke the 1953 easement between Enbridge and the State that enables Line 5 to operate in the Straits of Mackinac,” said Mike Moeller, an Enbridge director of operations for the region.

“Without Line 5, consumers will shoulder the burden of supply disruptions and related price increases, particularly for propane and transportation fuel,” Moeller added.

The dispute began in November, with Whitmer and Michigan’s head of its Department of Natural Resources arguing that future spills or damage to the pipeline could cause catastrophic environmental damage

“We cannot risk the devastating economic, environmental, and public health impacts of a catastrophic oil spill in the Great Lakes,” a spokesperson for the governor said at the time, adding that they believe the pipeline is a “ticking time bomb,” yet citing no evidence that there’s any imminent danger other than a hypothetical possibility.

Enbridge officials made clear that they will not shut the pipeline down unless the order comes down from a federal court or a Canadian regulatory agency, which the company claims are not likely outcomes.

The issue will reportedly undergo a meditation session in federal court this week as Michigan Attorney General Dana Nesse attempts to move the case to a state court.

  2. Whitmer is a controlling lunatic along with the other members of her commie team. She previously worked for George Soros and since all the stuff she’s done is in line of Hitler loving Soros and Obama his dirt bag agitators list of change America activities she’s a disgraceful POS. I wonder how she got an award recently was it by using tax payer money for a trip to Florida or was it for her failure of Covid restrictions for the public but not for her. When will Michiganders wake up and get her and her Hitler loving buddies out of Michigan government. Also, Rashid of the squad. Time to send her and the squad back to their home countries. If they don’t like it in the US then get rid of them by getting them a one way ticket to the hell holes they love. Rashid has family in Palestine but she seems to support the terrorist group Hammas and Iran bombing Israel. Time for her and the squad to leave along with Whitmer and her minions.

  6. The only good thing about the BO BO Biden and HO HO Harris so called Presidency is that they are bringing the Christians closer to god and recruiting unbelivers to GOD by showing what the Devel looks like on this earth. GOD is coming very soon and will send these Political Devels to the lake of fire for eternety. They can’t destroy this great Country and not pay the price for what is being done by these insane Political Devels. GOD is fair and just with mercy for all if they will accept it but the Devel has the Polititans in his pocket and they won’t change it is a sad sad time for all. Just Pray on and GOD will take care of us in the end. AMEN.!!!!!!

Leave the dam pipelines open you effin Democraps there are millions of people who rely on gas to get from place to place just because you aholes get driven everywhere you go and don’t have to pay for gas we do need it so stop your BS and leave it alone and open up the two pipelines that you did shut down especially the one they were building and bid bomashut down and made thousands of people lose their jobs the ahole needs to pay every one of those people out of his own pocket all the wages they lost and the house payments and electric and water bills that they couldn’t pay and the grocery bills not a stimulus payment but a personal out of bidens pocket payment not tax payers pockets

  16. It appears the Democrats are lead by the Devil himself. Their is no other logical reason, God wouldn’t want to hurt his people with more cost and harm. I only know one good Democrat and he died last year, he was a great friend. He was a conservative which is rare for the Democrat party. He would fo;;ow the Democrat leadership even when he knew they were wrong. He admitted to me that he was more afraid of his dead grandfather than the way the democrat party is leaning. I asked him one time how would his grandfather lean if he were alive today. He said that he was unsure because he was an honest man who believed in God. Today you can’t believe in God and have a leadership roll in the Democrat Party. Look at Sleepy Joe, Pelosi or Adam Schift. they have all gone against their religions due to politics and the Devil guiding them. I pray each day that they will allow God to intercede with their decisions and make them Christians again.

    1. Well, you are certainly right about the so called Catholic Dems!!! They have turned their backs on God, therefore .. they are NO LONGER CATHOLIC!!!! I can’t believe they turn their backs to our Lord .. all for political gain & power! Wolves in sheeps clothing .. as you said .. the DEVIL!!!
      GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

    1. He has been a failure for 48 years. But this year Biden has moved to the top of the trash heap pile! Add dementia on to his failures and he is likely to go as the worst president ever in the history of the USA! He and his crew are the worst ever!

    2. He was a failure for 47 years before that .. at least to AMERICA!! Probably alot longer in his private life!!
      He just SUCKS!!!!

  20. 6 out of 7 comments on the site are Spamming for Bogus “Job Opportunities” I wonder why it’s not immediately deleted?

  21. Now I have been told that she is a shoo in for Best Actress in next year’s Academy Awards. The current actors/actresses do NOT feel that it is important to even be in a movie. You know – it’s all what their crack dealer’s ideology is.

  22. An the democrats think she might be a good fit for President in 2024 She has almost destroyed Michigan

    1. I was born and and raised in Michigan..I feel awful for my family and all Michiganders there to live with Whitmer as govenor

    2. Gretchen Whitmer and Kamala Harris would make a fantastic 1-2 pairing (either order), to further the remaining progress of the current Biden disaster.

  23. who cares what you do or earn????? I thought this was a place to voice comments on the articles posted above, not hear you brag about your income. good for you. now go away. you must get a bonus for all the suckers you sign up. Whitmer the twit doesn’t care what she disrupts. look at what she has done to the state of Michigan. closed it tighter than a ticks hatband for the dreaded corona virus, which according to the cdc has really only killed 9,000. the actual disease itself is not deadly, unless you. are old or have underlying conditions. the vaccine, for emergency use only, has not been approved by the fda. it has been shown to cause blood clots in the brain, heart, kidneys, deafness, false positive mammograms, paralysis, and the list goes on and on. why is the government forcing this on us???? it is part of the plan to only have 500 million people living at any one time. ask gates about it. he has a grand plan, which includes starvation. why did he buy up farmlands and now he is the largest landowner of producing food farms in the u.s. but back to twitmer. she wants total control of everyone, and she is insane with her plans. with no gas, she knows people will be trapped in the state. she needs to be impeached. just like Joey Drools. and KA MA LA, piglosi, Schumer, Nadler, aoc and her gang of muslims. the list is endless.

    1. I would care less if I picked up the morning paper and read that some drunk/drugged driver ran over Gov. Whitmer. Or she caught a terminal case of coronavirus or the clap….

    1. I bet that the Democrats had something to do with the east coast gas hack. I would never trust a word out of any demoncraps mouth!!! Everyone of them is rotten to the core. They will rot in hell..

        1. They support Fauci, and he has been paying the Virus developers in Wuhan China to make and spread the Cov19 .
          He needs to be sent to prison, maybe sent to China, where he is wanted.

      1. ABSOLUTELY!!!
        DEMS are behind the FRAUD in the 2020 election, the pandemic, the Keystone pipeline shutdown, the pipeline extortion scam on the east coast & now this broad wants to do it up north!! Time to vote out these DESTRUCTIVE DEMS!!! It’s NOT about party anymore, it’s about AMERICA!!!!!

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP!!!!
        GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!!

      2. yes, they certainly are responsible. It was stated by an expert that the pipeline can manuallybover-ride the computer driven shut down but they are not doing it.

        1. Hope the dumb heffer has plenty of money. Canada has a ten year notification clause in their contract. We can’t shut down the flow of oil for ten years after we notified them. Look at the money Canada can collect from MI and the Biden administration. They would be responsible for the lost revenue from all the business that the pipeline services. Don’t worry joe will just print it
