There are more orders for Enbridge Energy Partners.

The Environmental Protection Agency said that Enbridge has until Monday to stop the flow of oil leaking from an Illinois pipeline. A spokesman for Enbridge said the oil is contained but it's still draining. Crews are cleaning it up and trying to determine how it happened.

Before the containment it's estimated that 200 to 600 gallons of crude leaked per hour.

The Illinois leak comes after another Enbridge pipeline ruptured in Marshall Township in July.
