Enbridge Energy Partners plans to proceed with a $2.5 billion pipeline expansion, called the Sandpiper Project, that will run 600 miles from the oil-rich region of western North Dakota to its Superior facility, Wisconsin Public Radio reports.

A spokeswoman with the petroleum and natural gas company said the project will more than double their current capacity -- which is about 225,000 barrels per day -- to a total of 580,000 barrels per day. The new pipeline could be in service by early 2016.

Last month, Forum Communications reported the new pipeline would run from the Beaver Lodge area south of Tioga to the main Enbridge terminal in Superior, but the final route was still being determined.

The Sandpiper plan is separate from the $40 million project to boost oil capacity on its Alberta Clipper pipeline.
