MILWAUKEE (AP) - An energy delivery company has asked Wisconsin officials to approve the construction of a 14-mile oil pipeline in the northern part of the state.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the request made by the Enbridge Energy Co. would represent the final piece of its 610-mile project. Enbridge says the $2.6 billion Sandpiper pipeline stretching from North Dakota to northwestern Wisconsin will give Midwest refiners greater access to domestic oil. The company wants to begin construction in 2016.

North Dakota officials have already approved their state's section of the pipeline, while officials in Minnesota and Wisconsin are still reviewing the proposal.

Many groups have expressed concern about Enbridge's track record. The Department of Natural Resources will hold a public hearing on Aug. 25 to discuss potential environmental consequences.
