Keystone Pipeline XL
The Keystone Pipeline System is an oil pipeline system in Canada and the United States. It runs from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin in Alberta, Canada, to refineries in the United States in Steele City, Nebraska, Wood River and Patoka, Illinois, and in the Gulf Coast of Texas. Progressives and others concerned about the environment oppose the pipeline because they believe it will cause further damage to the environment.
