Keystone XL Pipeline

It’s time to say yes. Keystone XL would bring us 830,000 barrels of oil a day through a safe, North American pipeline. It would be part of a privately funded, $7 billion investment in our economy, and could create as many as 117,000 U.S. jobs over the next twenty years.

 A Key to our Energy Future

 • Americans need affordable access to oil and gas to support our economy, security and future prosperity. 

 • The pipeline would not only bring Canadian oil to the Gulf coast but also bring domestic supplies to Texas refineries. It would increase our energy security, bring much-needed oil, create jobs and stimulate growth.

 • The Keystone XL pipeline is designed to be state-of-the-art and will prove to be the safest and most efficient way to get Canadian oil sands crude to the refineries in the Gulf coast.

A Key to Energy Security

 • Canada has the third most reserves in the world; including 170 billion barrels of recoverable oil from oil sands.

 • Creating a direct link between these resources and the U.S. market means a massive influx of safe, stable, near-domestic oil to fuel our economy.

 • We can count on Canadian oil for decades to come. Why depend on unfriendly or unstable regions when we could rely on our closest trade and security partner?

A Key to Economic Benefits

 • If completed, the Keystone XL pipeline would have a significant, positive impact on U.S. jobs and growth.

 • Reliable energy costs and new jobs, infrastructure spending and other economic activities related to oil sands development would help to boost the economy as a whole. 

 • A study by the Energy Policy Research Foundation, Inc. (EPRINC), found that oil sands crude could bring $100 to $600 million to the U.S. economy annually. Keystone XL alone could contribute $20 billion to the U.S. economy.
