API: State Department supports Keystone XL pipeline

By Bob Downing Published: April 18, 2013

From the American Petroleum Institute:

WASHINGTON, April 18, 2013 – The Keystone XL pipeline is in America’s national interest and would be safe, according to the State Department’s latest review, API Senior Downstream Manager Cindy Schild told reporters this morning in calling for approval of the project:

“No pipeline project has been analyzed as long and as thoroughly as the Keystone XL pipeline – it’s been under review for more than twice as long as it will take to build the entire project. While the delays have been frustrating, the State Department should be commended for the comprehensive nature of its analysis, and it should come as no surprise that they have reached the same conclusion in this review that they did in their previous three reviews: the Keystone XL pipeline is safe and will create tens of thousands of well-paying jobs.

“The science supports it. The people support it. A bi-partisan Congressional majority supports it. Organized labor is anxiously awaiting its approval. The environmental assessment is complete. Its contribution to our economy, to our long-term energy security and to our national security is clear. There is no question it is in our national interest, and it is time to approve this project.”

API is a national trade association that represents all segments of America’s technology-driven oil and natural gas industry. Its more than 500 members – including large integrated companies, exploration and production, refining, marketing, pipeline, and marine businesses, and service and supply firms – provide most of the nation’s energy. The industry also supports 9.2 million U.S. jobs and 7.7 percent of the U.S. economy, delivers $85 million a day in revenue to our government, and, since 2000, has invested over $2 trillion in U.S. capital projects to advance all forms of energy, including alternatives.
