Keystone Pipeline Checked for Defective Steel
This week we hear that the activity along the Keystone pipeline is actually TransCanada digging up sections of the pipeline in South Dakota, Nebraska, and Missouri, after tests revealed 47 anomalies where the pipe may have expanded beyond regulatory limits. The potential for problems with the pipeline was analyzed in a Plains Justice report this summer. We’re glad to see that TransCanada is following up on the anomalies, but it does make their constant assurances that the Keystone XL will be “the safest pipeline ever built” ring a little hollow. Safer than the one they just built that keeps springing leaks?
