Enbridge’s Flanagan South project, which would cost $2.8 billion and be completed around the same time [as the reversal of the Seaway pipe], would be built along the route of its existing Spearhead pipeline and have a capacity of 585,000 barrels a day.
The company’s existing crude mainline to Chicago has spare capacity that will allow Enbridge to boost shipments of Canadian oil to the U.S. by as much as 500,000 barrels a day...

When I heard this on NPR this morning my ears perked up because Conoco has a right of way across the corner of our property. It is the pipe that you can see deadending in SW MO on the map. I talked to a Conoco guy who said the pipeline used to go to Chicago.
Turns out the Spearhead pipe is the one that crosses east and west in MO then SW across KS to Wichita and S to Cushing.
