LAKEHEAD PIPE LINE PARTNERS L.P. LARGER EXPANSION TO PIPELINE SYSTEM PROPOSED

 DULUTH, Minn., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Lakehead Pipe Line Partners L.P. (NYSE: LHP) today announced a larger capacity expansion of its pipeline system.
 The revised expansion proposal includes a new pipeline from the Canadian border near Neche, North Dakota to Clearbrook, Minn. Details of the proposed expansion, including the diameter of the pipe and the number of miles of new line to be constructed, will be finalized over the next few weeks. The cost of the larger proposed expansion is not expected to exceed $150 million, compared with $13 million for the original proposal announced June 24.
 The Lakehead System is fully integrated with a pipeline system owned by Interprovincial Pipe Line Inc. of Edmonton, Alberta, which transports crude oil and other liquid hydrocarbons from Western Canada to the Canadian border for delivery to markets in the Midwest and Eastern Canada. The decision to increase the size of the proposed expansion was made at the request of western Canadian oil producers. The highest- volume users, who ship approximately 70 percent of the oil transported by the IPL and Lakehead Systems, have committed their support to the larger proposed expansion.
 IPL has notified Canada's National Energy Board of its intention to increase the proposed expansion of the IPL System from 110,000 to 170,000 barrels per day. The NEB has scheduled a public hearing on the Canadian portion of the proposed expansion for Nov. 22. Appropriate regulatory approvals are being pursued for the proposed Lakehead facilities. If approvals are received in a timely manner, construction in both Canada and the United States could begin early next year, with completion by the end of 1994.
 The Preference Units of Lakehead Pipe Line Partners, L.P. are traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "LHP."
