TransCanada's Keystone XL Permit Renewal Hearing Sheds Light on Serious Pipeline Risks

Just because TransCanada continually states that the Keystone XL pipeline will be the safest pipeline ever built, doesn't mean it is true.

The company's pipeline construction record is facing intense scrutiny in America's heartland, where many see no justifiable rationale to risk their water and agricultural lands for a tar sands export pipeline.

New documents submitted as evidence in the Keystone XL permitting process in South Dakota - including one published here on DeSmog for the first time publicly - paint a troubling picture of the company's shoddy construction mishaps. This document, produced by TransCanada and signed by two company executives, details the results of its investigation into the "root cause" of the corrosion problems discovered on the Keystone pipeline.
