IOLA, Kan. (AP) -- A Canadian company planning to build a 600-mile oil pipeline from Illinois to Oklahoma is coming to eastern Kansas to discuss the project.

Enbridge Inc. of Calgary, Alberta, hopes to begin construction early next month on its Flanagan South pipeline. The company has scheduled a series of open house sessions this week in Illinois, Missouri and Kansas.

The Iola session is Thursday at the North Community Building from 5-7 p.m. Attendees will be able to review project maps and meet with Enbridge employees in an informal session.

Enbridge officials say they expect to receive an expedited permit review from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The company's existing Spearhead pipeline runs parallel to the Flanagan South route, with pump stations in place at Linn and Humboldt.
