While TransCanada (TRP) CEO Russ Girling expects U.S. passage of the Keystone pipeline, he proposes to ship oil 3K miles to the Atlantic Coast, allowing producers to send it by tanker to the Gulf of Mexico. The eastern route makes sense because of rising production from Alberta, and "you don’t need a presidential permit to bring oil into the Gulf Coast."

  • This oil would also replace imported oil in eastern Canada and on the US gulf coast as well as be available for export anywhere in the world. If the Keystone situation has taught Canada anything it is that you never rely on just one customer for anything no matter how much of a good friend you think they are. In the end, it is my opinion that we will see pipes run both east and west and possibly even to Hudson's Bay with those willing to pay the highest price getting the oil.

  • still with the big lip, this guy. picking at a sore that was caused by a governor because trap's planners didn't take that governor seriously. thought they'd be able to just push it through. they failed, they didn't learn, and now they pout to show they haven't learned about blaming the president for their failure.

     

    i am so glad i didn't put my money in this co. they are sounding more and more third worldish every day.

     

    if they'd done their job right, they would've had their permit.

  • Stick with Hugo! Put your money there if you feel third worldy.
    I never feel good about my propaganda intake when viable growth projects are stopped. So happy for you.

  • The US Bakken output could be piped to a Canadian east bound line as well. Then no windfall for Warren Buffet and his rail outfit. Of course Warren would have to tell his buddy to 'permit' the oil to go to Canada!

  • As I have stated in the past---give Obama a deadline date for passage ,no amendments,no anything ,no jobs, no taxes,no oil, just go east & west in Canada to sell oil to anyone who will pay for it!!!

  • Contaylor - Too simple! We need to play some games first. Then humm and haww for a while. Then call in someone with no real experise to comment and evaluate. (celebrities are best for that) Then we can inch forward.

     

    If we did things your way there would be no money to pay lobbyists and commentators. No extra profits for the alternatists. No political hay to reap. --- bad for certain sectors of the economy!
