A Canadian company responsible for a 2010 oil pipeline rupture in southwestern Michigan says it plans to study a National Transportation Safety Board report on the accident.

Enbridge Inc. says it has improved its operations and training after the spill. It says it also plans to see whether further improvements were needed.

Stephen Wuori is the company's president for liquids pipelines and says "safety has always been core" to Enbridge's operations. He says Enbridge wants to learn from what happened to ensure it's not repeated.

The NTSB says Enbridge's failure to deal adequately with cracks in the pipeline and its slow response to the rupture likely caused the spill near Marshall, a city 95 miles west of Detroit.

The pipeline runs from Griffith, Ind., to Sarnia, Ontario.
