Transcanada begins transporting oil through pipeline from Oklahoma to Nederland
KFDM News - Transcanada says it started operating the Texas portion of Keystone XL oil pipeline, and began delivering oil from a cub in Oklahoma to Nederland on Wednesday.
The company expects to complete a smaller pipeline that will transport oil from Nederland to refineries near Houston later this year.
Completion of the longer Keystone XL, which would transport heavy tar sands crude from Canada, still requires a permit from President Obama because it crosses an international border.
