Line 3 Replacement - Spread 5 and 6

Scope: 280 km x NPS 36, 1 HDD

Year: 2018-2019

Client: Enbridge Pipelines Inc.

Spread 5 and 6 of the Enbridge Line 3 Replacement involved the mainline construction of approximately 280 km of NPS 36 across eastern Saskatchewan and western Manitoba from Regina SK to Cromer MB. The project was executed from August 2018 to March 2019.

Spread 5 and 6 represented the largest single construction package on the entire Line 3 Replacement Program and required over 1,100 employees and subcontractors at its peak to complete. Banister averaged over 3km of production a day completing 163 trenchless crossings and a total of 12,000 welds.

Banister worked with 12 different First Nation and Metis communities sourcing over $75 million of services and materials from local Indigenous communities.  

We are proud to say that we met our target production rates and remained on schedule to meet our client’s required in service date.
