HOUSTON Jan 27 (Reuters) - Enbridge Inc. has started shipping crude on its 300,000 barrel per day Southern Access Extension (SAX) pipeline from Flanagan to Patoka, Illinois, a company spokesman confirmed on Wednesday.

The pipeline was originally slated to start service in late-2015.

The system will transport primarily light crude oil from the Flanagan terminal to the storage hub in Patoka, which is connected to refineries throughout the Midwest. (Reporting by Liz Hampton)
