5. Many, many miles of the Keystone Pipeline have already been completed.

Mobilization of equipment and services, including construction, for the project started in 2008. Site of first construction was in North Dakota at the U.S.-Canadian border in May 2008 with Canadian construction getting under way during June 2008. Completion on the pipeline section to Cushing is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2010.

Although Keystone is several months from completion, TransCanada has started filling completed sections of the pipeline system.

Here is a quick tale-of-the tape for the Keystone project:

*Total length is 2,148 miles.

*1,379 total miles of new pipeline was built in the U.S., including 1,084 miles of the U.S. mainline from the U.S.-Canadian border to markets in Wood River and Patoka as Phase I and 295 miles from Nebraska to Cushing as Phase II.





I don't see the Resource Extraction Corporation just abandoning the multi-millions they have already spent. I expect something far more nefarious.
(Yes. You are right. I don't trust these guys.
I've known them far too long. They won't throw all this away.)
