Time to build
Communities throughout Canada and the U.S., including Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, have shown their support for Keystone XL Pipeline. These communities and businesses along the pipeline route are poised to benefit from construction and long-term operation of the pipeline.
Economic benefits for local communities
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 supplying goods and services to the project and the project’s workforce.
Keystone XL will generate tens of millions of dollars in property taxes across 40 counties in the U.S. and Canada every year of operation.
Once in-service, Keystone XL will also contribute an estimated $62 million in annual property taxes to Canadian and U.S. municipalities along the pipeline right-of-way, these dollars will support community services such as fire protection, policing, schools, hospital districts and waste management.
Business and infrastructure development
Keystone XL will provide the United States with a stable, secure supply of crude oil from North America, reaching U.S. Gulf Coast refiners and meeting critical needs for transportation fuel and useful manufactured products.
