Enbridge Pipeline Restarted

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 18, 2007) - Enbridge Inc. (TSX:ENB) (NYSE:ENB) reports that at approximately 17:40 MST, April 18, 2007, Enbridge Pipelines restarted the portion of its crude oil pipeline that had been shut down as a result of a release of heavy crude oil on April 15, 2007.

Enbridge restarted the line under reduced pressure of 80 per cent. Enbridge anticipates that the pipeline will be operated at reduced pressure until additional analysis indicates that a return to normal operating pressure is appropriate.

The affected section of pipe has been removed for analysis. Enbridge has recovered a significant amount of the oil and continues to focus on completing the initial clean-up and evaluating site remediation measures. Clean-up is being conducted in compliance with all government regulations and Enbridge's stringent standards for safety and the environment.

Enbridge continues to investigate the cause of the release and is working closely with the appropriate regulators.

The line is a 34-inch, 490,000 bpd line transporting heavy and medium crude oil from Edmonton, Alberta to Superior, Wisconsin.
