Hundreds of millions in property taxes
Once operational, Keystone XL will generate hundreds of millions in property taxes for municipalities in more than 40 counties in Canada and the United States — valuable funds that can be spent on schools, hospitals, roads and more.
Construction of Keystone XL will create 13,200 (10,400 U.S. and 2,800 Canada) high-quality jobs and local contracting opportunities for welders, surveyors, engineers, environmental specialists and more for communities and Indigenous groups. Overall, construction will support nearly 60,000 (U.S., 42,000 and Canada, 17,000) direct, indirect and induced employment opportunities generated by the business that will be created by supplying goods and services to the project and the project’s workforce.
Safely transporting energy
Keystone XL has been carefully studied by federal, state and provincial agencies for more than a decade. These studies unanimously concluded Keystone XL can be built safely and with care for the environment.
This is the most studied cross-border pipeline in the history of North America. Keystone XL has been extensively studied by federal, state and provincial agencies for more than a decade, including six comprehensive scientific reviews by the U.S. Department of State. All of this research concluded Keystone XL can be built safely and with care for the environment.
