Keystone XL Pipeline to Resume Construction

Jan. 20, 2020

Construction work on the Keystone XL pipeline project is expected to re-start in April. Workers will begin prepping for the re-start as early as next month, according to a report in Business Financial.

According to the report, the pipeline will be built between Canada and the U.S. The company plans to mobilize heavy construction equipment to worker camps and pipeline storage yards in Montana, South Dakota, and Nebraska in February. Mowing and other site clearing activities will begin in March, and by April, the company intends to move pipes by trains and trucks into storage yards.

Construction on pumping stations for the pipeline will begin in June, along with a portion of the pipeline through Nebraska. 

According to the article, the company was forced to stop work as a result of an unfavorable court decision in 2018, causing work camps along the pipeline route in the U.S. to empty. Those injunctions were overturned last June.

TC Energy Corp., the company building the pipeline, has been looking to build the pipeline for over 10 years.
