It's in use now and expected to exist soon?

I didn't mean to confuse you Crappie Luck.

The Keystone XL Pipelines, which are phase 3 and 4 of the original Keystone Pipeline, are the ones that are not yet completed. They are expansion segments of the original Keystone Pipeline which has been in operation since 2010.

Phases 3 and 4 will be looked at in 2013.

Keystone XL Pipeline Project:

TransCanada is fully committed to the construction of the 1,897-km (1,179-mile) Keystone XL Pipeline from Hardisty, Alberta to Steele City, Nebraska. We will re-apply for a Presidential Permit and expect a new application to be processed in an expedited manner, making use of the exhaustive record compiled over the past three plus years of regulatory review to allow for an in-service date of 2015. TransCanada anticipates approval of the Presidential Permit application - which is required as the pipeline will cross the Canada/U.S. border - in the first quarter of 2013, after which construction will quickly begin.


How the heck can a pipeline already been built and in use running from Alberta to Illinois when it DID NOT HAVE A PERMIT TO CROSS THE US/CANADA BORDER????????






This may help explain it:

TransCanada Corporation proposed the project on February 9, 2005. In October 2007, the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada asked the Canadian federal government to block regulatory approvals for the pipeline, with union president Dave Coles stating that 'the Keystone pipeline will exclusively serve US markets, create permanent employment for very few Canadians, reduce our energy security, and hinder investment and job creation in the Canadian energy sector'. However, the National Energy Board of Canada approved the construction of the Canadian section of the pipeline, including converting a portion of TransCanada's Canadian Mainline gas pipeline to crude oil pipeline, on September 21, 2007. On March 17, 2008, the U.S. Department of State issued a Presidential Permit authorizing the construction, maintenance and operation of facilities at the United States and Canada border.

On January 22, 2008, ConocoPhillips acquired a 50% stake in the project. However, on June 17, 2009, TransCanada agreed that they would buy out ConocoPhillips' share in the project and revert to being the sole owner. It took TransCanada more than two years to acquire all the necessary state and federal permits for the pipeline. Construction took another two years. The pipeline, from Hardisty, Alberta, Canada, to Patoka, Illinois, U.S.A., became operational in June 2010.


As I explained to Crappie Luck the newest addition to that original pipeline is called the Keystone XL Pipeline and is the one that is slated to be completed in the future. It is phase 3 and 4 of the original and they are the ones that have been in the news recently and last year.

Sorry you got so confused.
