How the Keystone pipeline got a boost from hydraulic fracturing

President Obama’s decision to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline through Nebraska to Gulf Coast refineries was hailed by the environmental movement as a major victory.

The move was hailed as a victory for American workers, the environment and the climate, and a symbol of Obama’s push to put a price on carbon.

But it’s not clear whether the decision is the only major boost the Keystone will receive from the controversial drilling technique.

Here are five other things you need to know about the Keystone Pipeline.


The Keystone pipeline was originally built by TransCanada, a Canadian company.

The company’s pipeline will carry Canadian tar sands crude oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf Coast.

TransCanada is a subsidiary of Canadian oil giant Energy East.

It has been building the pipeline since 2010.

The pipeline was supposed to be built from the Gulf of Mexico to refineries along the Gulf coast, but the project was delayed because of the climate change debate.

Trans Canada also has a major stake in the project, which was approved by the Obama administration.

It is the biggest pipeline project in the United States.

Trans Canadian said it was committed to meeting the environmental impact statement requirements of the project.


The Environmental Protection Agency is currently reviewing TransCanada’s application to build and operate the pipeline.

The EPA’s review of the pipeline has not yet been completed.


The project has raised concerns about how oil will be transported in the pipeline and whether the pipeline will leak.

The State Department has warned that the pipeline could leak if it is used as a tanker in an accident.

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) said in April that the Keystone project is in a “critical” position and could rupture at any time.

PHMSA said in a September memo that the risk to pipeline workers and property “is remote and remote.”

PHM SA said that Keystone could be “unable to safely operate if not used in a safe manner.”

The pipeline is about 200 miles long, and will carry about 830,000 barrels of crude oil per day, or more than 9 million barrels per year.


The Nebraska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission has already issued a draft permit for the Keystone, but has not finalized it.

Nebraska officials have said they will make a decision by the end of the year.

The permit will be reviewed by the State Department and the National Environmental Policy Act Advisory Committee, which is comprised of representatives of the National Park Service, the Interior Department, the Department of the Interior, and the Department’s Office of Surface Mining and Geothermal Energy.

The final decision could take months, according to the commission.


The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has issued a preliminary environmental impact study for the pipeline, which has not been released to the public.

The study found that the environmental impacts of the Keystone would be minimal and that it would not affect the quality of the water in the area.

The report also said that there is no significant impact on water quality or any of the other environmental impacts that would be assessed during the environmental assessment process.

The agency said it will provide additional information to the Nebraska Department of Transportation, which will then issue a final environmental impact report.
