No excess pipe from Keystone project: exec

Keywords: Tags  TransCanada, Keystone XL, Gulf Coast project, Thorsten Schier


NEW YORK — TransCanada Corp. will not have any excess pipe left over from its rerouted Keystone XL project, even though its new route is 509 miles shorter than the original, a company spokesman told AMM.

"The pipe that has already been manufactured is being used for both the Gulf Coast pipeline project and Keystone XL," he said in an e-mail, noting that the reroute to avoid environmentally sensitive areas in Nebraska will require the manufacture of more pipe.

The Calgary, Alberta-based company’s Gulf Coast project runs 485 miles between Cushing, Okla., and Nederland, Texas.

The U.S. State Department recently released its draft supplemental environmental impact statement for Keystone XL’s reroute ( amm.com, March 4).

TransCanada had said in the past that a rejection of Keystone XL could prompt a resale of the pipe manufactured for the project ( amm.com, Feb. 9, 2012).
