TransCanada to build southern leg of Keystone pipeline: reports

WASHINGTON/CALGARY - TransCanada Corp is expected to announce on Monday that it will start to build the southern leg of its controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline between Canada and the United States, three political news organizations reported.

Of course it's going to get the Go-Ahead in Canada, there is a deadline.. Regardless if it was approved or not by the American congress for their side of the border. We've been stock piling pipes in Alberta lots for years now; all of us in the Oil/Gas industry knew it was going to begin before Summer up here.

Oh well.. At least many Canadians will be put to work over the next few years.

I love watching the Obama administration trying to learn the new dance steps...after the band has left the room.....

This will most assuredly place Obamba's back firmly against the prickly wall of consumer approval.....

Pump baby pump, aye.

Such a shame that Obama won't approve it simply because Master Buffet wont let him.

I'm not as familiar as I should be n this project.

A brief read tells me that this is preparation to transport Northern crude into the US if Obama and the legilslative branch agree on the project.

Would this mean less dependency on mideast based crude?

If so, then I am all in favor of this project.
Becoming self-sustainable here in the western hemisphere to me sounds like a good thing.

It was only 100 miles of pipeline that was protested and it was under State Department study for 3 years and approved. What people don't realise is that there are already two other oil pipelines going in the same area that were built in the 50's. Now does anyone think that a moderan pipeline would be less safe than one built in the 50's?

We have the Excel pipeline one running just west of my town and a pumping station is located there. It provides $140000.00 in taxes to the school system. Taxes that the citizens don't have to pay.

I used to be in favor of the pipeline, until I found out what they plan to do with the oil.

Right now the midwest is facing a glut of oil from the Canadian oil sands and all the new wells in North Dakota. There is so much of it sitting in Oklahoma that it is selling for $83 instead of the $106 it is bringing on the world market.

So I'm paying 3.45 a gallon for my gas instead of what the coasters are paying.

They are going to pipe this oil to the gulf, refine it and sell it on the global market.

How in all that is holy does this help break our dependence on foriegn oil?

Yeah, but the more oil there is on the global market DOES affect price. That is what we are seeing now with Iran cutting off nations. The price goes up. If we introduced a new supply it would go down.

It's a good work project. Even if the US decided they'll never want it, the northern Cdn part could still be routed further east towards our eastern coast. The southern US part seem to be close enough to the Bakken field? Isn't that in North Dakota?

We need more of our own refineries. Even more jobs...


it will start to build the southern leg of its controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline between Canada and the United States


"Between" Canada and the States


Odd wording.... that must just mean that they'll be building in both countries...

Take thirty minutes out of your day, and realize the fruitless efforts of mankind. There is no solution except one that goes beyond what "conventional science" says is possible.

Jobs mean nothing in the long run. The environmental catastrophe and the limited...no, poor amount of oil will do nothing for us in the long run.

I am all for this pipeline. I this the for sure advantages definitely outweigh the possible disadvantages, that we can't even be sure will happen.

Saskatchewan is usually the one in need of workers, but we're also short on housing

Alberta usually has lots of work too, just more competition for the jobs.

If you can get a work visa, or find someone who can pay under the table, and have a camper, summers in the prairies are very nice

TransCanada will begin building the portion of the line that runs from Cushing, Oklahoma south to Texas refineries, reported The Hill, National Journal and Politico.

Well if this isn't about a huge slap across Obama's face....and a hard backhand on the return for good measure.

Basically, to my eyes, they are telling the U.S. 'Fine...turn us down. Your days in power are few and you're out before we'll be done anyway. Your successor will lead where you couldn't'.


Maybe I am reading too much into it....but that sure seems to be a fair guess for the mindset that builds a Pipeline our President has flat turned down and killed outright. lol..... Yup... His opinion only matters for a short time.

I'm not 6, I understand what it will do to world prices.

But they haven't been touting it as that, they've been saying it will help wean us of foriegn oil dependence.
