TransCanada’s Keystone XL Pipeline Project

TransCanada is proposing to construct the 2,000 km Keystone XL Pipeline project from Hardisty, Alberta to Steele City, Nebraska, where it will connect into the existing Keystone Pipeline system to provide safe and direct access to the world’s largest heavy crude refining market in the U.S. Gulf Coast.  The US$8 billion project is intended to transport up to 830,000 barrels of crude oil per day and will be constructed over a period of approximately two years.  Keystone XL will have significant benefits for Canada and the U.S., including the generation of an estimated $3.4 billion in additional gross domestic product for the U.S. economy and the potential to reduce North American greenhouse gas emissions by up to 19 million metric tons (compared to shipping by rail).  By improving takeaway capacity and increasing low cost transportation for Western Canadian crude oil to the U.S. Gulf Coast, Keystone XL will improve the pricing producers receive for their product, thereby improving the competitiveness of this important segment of the Canadian economy.
