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
"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
companys 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 XLs 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 (
