CALGARY, Alberta (Reuters) - The outage on Enbridge Inc’s (ENB.TO) Line 2A pipeline in Canada’s Alberta that was shut after a leak will last about three weeks, the company said on Wednesday in a notice to shippers seen by Reuters.

Enbridge has said the line, which transports light crude as well as condensate between Edmonton and Hardisty, was struck last week during unrelated construction activity in the area by TransCanada Corp (TRP.TO) and a contractor.

TransCanada has said it is investigating.

When asked about the shipper notice, Enbridge said only that it was working with customers to mitigate impact.

About 200 cubic meters of condensate leaked in the incident, and the company has said it had made “significant progress” in recovering it.
