TEXAS - Oil could be flowing through TransCanada’s Gulf Coast Pipeline by the end of the year, clearing up the logjam in Cushing, Okla., and sending thousands of barrels per day to refineries near Nederland.
The 485-mile pipeline is more than 85 percent complete, said David Dodson of Calgary, Canada-based TransCanada.
Additional pumping stations and ground meters also need to be built. The 36-inch diameter pipeline passes through 17 Texas counties and will have a capacity of 700,000 barrels per day.
The Gulf Coast Pipeline is often confused with the Keystone XL Pipeline, which is still pending approval.
