Keystone XL pipeline takes second shot at U.S. okay

May 4, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Reuters

TransCanada Corp is taking its second shot at asking Washington to approve the contentious Keystone XL oil pipeline, betting that a new route through Nebraska and post-U.S. election time frame for a decision will push the project forward.

"I mean, Mitt Romney comes from a Mormon background. I don't know how many wives he has. I'm not saying that I believe in that, I'm just saying he was born on a Mormon compound. I'm not a 'Wifer' but for some reason he's never shown his original marriage certificate."

The Keystone would create jobs in both Canada and the United States. I think the recent jump in fuel prices on the West Coast and the fire at the Cherry Point refinery http://www.king5.com/news/local/Fire-at-Cherr... illustrate the need to improve capacity.

TransCanada claims the pipeline will create 20,000 jobs. A State Department report estimates that only 20 permanent operating jobs would be created in the six states along the pipeline route. By comparison, those same states are home to robust agricultural, ranching and tourist industries that are dependent on water and vulnerable to environmental contamination. Across the six states agriculture employs 571,000 workers and tourism 780,000; the total revenue from those sectors, respectively, is $76.3 billion and $67 billion.

Transcanada CEO: TransCanada has no obligation to direct product to the U.S. market.

There is plenty of pipeline capacity in Canada, one of the main reasong the Canadian government repeatedly denied the permits in the past but now the right officials have some cash under the table and the permits in Canada are done.
Very few jobs other than temporary construction jobs will result from the piepline to the Gulf of Mexico. The fuel will not be for American consumption but rather for export so it will have no effect on domestic fuel prices.
There has been a surplus of gasoline in America for almost the past year anyway but prices ghave stayed high and oil companies continue enjoying their record high profits. People rejoice when the price at the pum goes down a nickle or dime in a month but forget that 10 years ago they were paying just over a dollar a gallon and oil was at fifty dollars a barrel. Do the math.

We donít need the Keystone pipeline Ė the Canadians do!
A large part of the Keystone pipeline proposed already exists and is old, the U.S. used it to deliver refined oil north from the Gulf. Now they propose to join it to Canada and reverse its flow southward. In order to move oil sands crude oil in the pipe, it will have to be heated, diluted with other solvents to prevent clogging and pressurized. The pipeline is proposed to be built over important farm lands and sole source aquifers in the Midwest. The state of Nebraska has issued strong opposition to its crossing fragile areas in its borders. In my opinion, this pipeline is multiple disasters waiting to happen. The pro-oil argument is that the Gulf coast refineries have the equipment to handle the sour crudes. The environmental argument is that we should move those refineries to light, sweet crude, which we are now pumping in the US, while we slowly convert to non-carbon energy production. We don't need the Canadian oil or its problems. So don't be fooled by the claims of cheap oil and jobs. These arguments are as dark and ominous as the oil itself! Besides, Obama supports extending the existing Keystone XL pipeline from Cushing, Okla., to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

Even if we don't get oil out of it, theres still the jobs, which I'm sure they'd be glad to have.
