Portion of Keystone XL to go ahead

Published by Steve Coleman on February 27, 2012

While the international segment of the Keystone XL pipeline between the Alberta oil sands and Gulf of Mexico refineries is on hold pending a post-US election reapplication, TransCanada Pipelines plans to target an Oklahoma bottleneck.

The company plans to spend $2.3 billion building a new line between Cushing, Okla. and Port Arthur, Tex. The Oklahoma city has become a Midwest collection point for oil shipped from both the US and Canada.

The White House says it's still open to a thorough review of the section linking Hardisty, Alta. with Steele City, Neb.

TransCanada says the Oklahoma-Texas portion will provide employment for 4,000 people.
