Enbridge Energy’s pledges to cover cleanup costs from a Line 5 oil spill may not be legally enforceable, according to a risk analysis commissioned by the Whitmer administration.
“In the event of a catastrophic oil spill, the people of the state of Michigan could be left holding the bag for more than a billion dollars in unfunded liability,” Attorney General Dana Nessel said. Her office and the state’s two environmental agencies asked for the report from the American Risk Management Resources Network, an environmental insurance broker.
