The Line 3 Replacement:
Safety. Efficiency. Jobs. Tax Revenues.
The Line 3 Replacement project is receiving support across the state because there are many benefits to shipping as much crude oil as possible through safe, efficient pipelines.
Line 3 Replacement will handle 760,000 barrels of oil each day –
These restored barrels will no longer be supplemented by train cars across the state, though cities.
Line 3 Replacement improves the business of small gas stations and petroleum-based retailers across the state –
Retailers of petroleum products benefit from more efficient, consistent supply.
Line 3 Replacement makes more rail assets available for Minnesota farmers –
More rail assets available means "more grain on the train."
Line 3 Replacement helps farmers, and the entire Ag industry –
More capacity to ship more grain will help co-ops, elevators and small communities.
Line 3 Replacement will create jobs along its 337-mile path –
People across the state will benefit from 8600 jobs created by the pipeline.
Line 3 Replacement will create thousands of additional jobs –
The US $2.9 billion investment will drive massive equipment and service purchases.
Line 3 Replacement helps improve retail sales and service business opportunities –
Business communities across the state will benefit from the pipeline development.
Line 3 Replacement will pay $19.5 million annually in property taxes to local governments –
Each year, city and county governments will get big budget boosts from the project.
