TEXAS - Construction on the Gulf Coast Pipeline Project is beginning to wind down. Over the past 15 months, 4,844 workers have been building a critical, modern piece of American energy infrastructure from Cushing, Okla. to Nederland.

The $2.3 billion investment is designed to deliver American and Canadian crude oil to Texas refineries.

The 485-mile pipeline will have the initial capacity to transport up to 700,000 barrels of oil per day with the potential to transport up to 830,000 barrels of oil per day to Gulf Coast refineries.

The original Keystone Pipeline, which has been in operation since 2010 and safely delivered almost 490 million barrels of oil, required 8,969 people to build the pipeline and its related facilities.

Manufacturing of the pipe, pump stations, specialized equipment and advanced technology for the Gulf Coast and Keystone XL Pipeline projects also supported about 7,000 positions.
