Alberta Premier Jason Kenney marked the start of construction of the Keystone XL pipeline in the province on Friday, in the small town of Oyen. “We are here at long last, kicking off construction of the Alberta spread of the Keystone XL project,” said Kenney. “We’re finally getting it done.” The 1,947-kilometre project will be able to carry 830,000 barrels of crude oil per day from Hardisty, Alta., to Steele City, Neb., where it will connect with TC Energy’s existing facilities and eventually reach refineries on the Gulf Coast. About 270 kilometres of the line will be within Alberta. Work is already underway in three U.S. states.
