Southern Portion of Keystone XL Delivering Crude Oil to TX Refineries

TransCanada Corp. announced that at approximately 10:45 a.m. CST on January, 22, 2014, the Gulf Coast Project began delivering crude oil to Texas refineries.

Construction of the 487-mile crude oil pipeline involved more than 11 million hours of labor completed by 4,844 workers in the U.S., more than 50 contracts with manufacturers and companies building the pipeline and equipment from across the U.S. It also includes the addition of 2.25 million barrels of new oil storage capacity at Cushing, OK.

"The workers who helped build this project are in addition to 8,969 men and women who constructed the initial Keystone Pipeline system, and we are waiting for approval of Keystone XL so we can employ more than 9,000 more Americans who are waiting to put their skills and experience to work," said TransCanada President and CEO Russ Girling.
