About the project

The Keystone XL Pipeline (KXL) is a 36-inch-diameter crude oil pipeline running from Hardisty, Alberta to Steel City, Nebraska. Once complete, KXL will allow market hubs in the Midwest and as far south as Texas access to approximately 1.1 million barrels of crude oil daily. This is nearly double the capacity of the current Keystone system. The $7 billion pipeline expansion will generate tremendous economic growth, support thousands of jobs for local craftsmen, provide millions in annual property tax revenue and strengthen American energy security.

In early July 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way for several pipeline projects to proceed under a fast-track permitting process (Nationwide Permit 12) but excluded KXL expansion from their ruling, forcing major delays.

For almost a decade, the final leg of KXL has been delayed, unable to the gain final approval from the U.S. State Department and the state of Nebraska. After the Trump administration and the Nebraska government gave their approval in 2017, activists sued to stop construction, invigorating a wave of opposition that the project continues to face.

I’ve been a mainline pipeline worker since 1998. Been through good times and bad. But what’s happening now is destroying my career. Been on unemployment way too long. What’s happening to our industry is an absolute crime !! It’s ridiculous !! Nobody is absent from dependence on oil and gas !! Absolute shame what the hell is going on now. It must stop , and the smart people take over this ridiculous situation !! Pipelines are the safest method of transportation of fuels !! Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Our country has been taken over.

I’ve never took part in the Keystone Project, however I believe shutting down this project could be a big waste of money, for there will be causes of nature to create unfinished pipeline work to create corrosion in steel pipe because of the snow and rain, and any other forces of nature. That is why its critical to finish Pipelines we already started. State Laws for this project need to open up Keystone XL for the completion of this project.. Lets find whatever needs to be done to respect certain things their communities and states will not tolerate and find a way around these walls in order to complete our Project for Keystone XL.. For the States invloved with Keystone XL, Gas and Oil will be needed for at least 5 decades to come, were here to serve you and Trans Canada, and would Appreciate the opportunity to complete “TransCanada Keystone XL Project”. Thank You Very Much…

Ian Charles Cloy and I favor pipelines transporting our gas and oil products because of the safety and convenience. Imagine how many rail cars it would take. These products are transported all over the USA which creates jobs, tax revenue and heat and AC for our homes. Most everything we use has some part of oil or gas in it. Look at the price of gas going up just by canceling one pipeline and stop permitting for. New wells. If you want 4 or 5 dollar gas and higher prices on most of the products you buy then support these actions
