Down The Pipeline: Facts About America's Largest Oil Pipeline

DOWN . THE PIPELINE Facts about America's largest oil pipeline The U.S. already imports over barrels of tar 81010.Ioj0j0 sands oil per day. The oil comes from a series of pipelines that runs through Canada. The largest and most ambitious of them is ... THE KEYSTONE XL Cpeing It runs from Alberta, Canada to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast. The pipeline crosses six American states on the way. Total length of Pipeline ALBERTA 2,148 MILES MONTANA SOUTH DAKOTA NEBRASA The pipe has á KANSAS 30-36" OK diameter TEXAS HOWEVER THIS PROJECT FACED A NUMBER OF CHALLENGES The route crosses countless road crossings and required 24 directionally drilled river and stream crossings along the mainline and six directionally drilled rivers on the Cushing section. Pre-construction activity provided the biggest challenges, such as working with 4,500 landowners and acquiring permits in six different states. But the biggest concern of all was ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE The construction of the pipeline could hurt forests and other habitats. Outside of the physical damage, there is a threat of cross contamination of oil, microorganisms, insects and other wildlife. Environmental Matting provided a solution. ENVIRONMENTAL MATTING can be used to protect soil conditions, local vegetation and wildlife, while actually increasing work productivity and safety for your company, machinery and personnel.
