Rail may replace Keystone Pipeline plans
TransCanada is looking into options to replace the Keystone XL Pipeline, should that plan be rejected by President Obama within the next few months. The company is considering building a rail terminal in Hardisty, Alberta, where Keystone XL would have begun. They would also study the possibility of building a second terminal in Cushing, Okla., which is one of the largest oil storage hubs in the U.S. Rail is considered to be a more dangerous option than the pipeline, which, if built, would be capable of carrying 700,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast.
