Keystone Pipeline Expansion Could Be Delayed Again, By Power Line Construction Delays
Nebraska Public Power District officials say they won’t be able to build the transmission lines by the deadline TransCanada set for the end of 2014.
NPPD Chief Operating Officer Tom Kent says there’s no way the transmission lines will be ready by 2015.
TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL pipeline expansion will double its capacity from Alberta to the Texas coast if the Obama Administration gives the project final approval. That approval could be months off, according to recent statements from the State Department.
