CUSHING, Oklahoma -

The Flanagan South pipeline owned by Enbridge Inc. is now in service, shipping crude oil from the Bakken area in North Dakota and Canadian oil sands region from Illinois to Cushing, Oklahoma.

Work began on the $2.6 billion, 600-mile long pipeline in 2013 and was completed late this summer.

Enbridge spokesman Larry Springer said the 36-inch diameter pipeline became operational Monday and runs through Osage, Pawnee and Payne counties to the oil storage hub in Cushing.  He says the pipeline has the capacity to move nearly 600,000 barrels of heavy crude oil per day.

Springer says Enterprise Products is now filling the Seaway Twin pipeline with oil delivered to Cushing.  That pipeline will soon deliver oil shipped via the Flanagan South Pipeline to the Gulf Coast.
