* More than 2-1/2 years after a Canadian pipeline rupture spilled heavy oil into a Michigan river, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is ordering Calgary-based Enbridge Inc to perform additional dredging to remove submerged oil.

* Nancy Pelosi, one of Washington's most powerful Democrats, has signaled that she is skeptical about the benefits of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline that would send heavy crude from Alberta's oil sands across the United States to refineries on the Gulf Coast.
