The American Pipeline Contractors Association (APCA) expressed strong disappointment in President Biden’s revocation of the cross-border permit between the U.S. and Canada for the Keystone XL pipeline as part of his “Day 1” executive actions. The pipeline was being built to carry more than 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast, passing through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. The president’s move comes at a time when 300 miles of pipeline included in the 1,200-mile project have already been constructed and when the energy industry cannot afford to lose sacred jobs in midst of a global pandemic.
