Barbara Stamiris commented on Q&A: Legal expert on Line 5, treaty rights and the public trust 2018-11-21 09:18:32 -0500We have been told the tunnel will provide “energy security” for Michigan, especially propane for the UP. But 100% of the propane NGLs crossing the straits go directly to Sarnia for Enbridge profit, not Micigan need. The 2% of Line 5’s natural gas liquids which are converted to propane near Escanaba are distributed by truck or rail within the UP to meet its need before ever reaching the straits.
That these NGLs come from the land portion of Line 5 means that we can easily find other means of distribution as explained in the Alternatives Analysis prepared for the state..in fact that is what the state should be exploring now in case Line 5 fails leaving UP residents out in the cold.
