In addition to the proposed Keystone XL, the Keystone Mapping Project (KMP) now includes the Keystone Pipeline route map through North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska.
Initially, the KMP had only mapped the proposed Keystone XL, whose southern segment was called the Gulf Coast Extension. As originally envisioned, the Keystone XL route ran through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas. While only the Oklahoma-Texas Gulf Coast Extension of the Keystone XL was built, its construction in 2014 allowed for the Keystone complex of pipelines to extend north-south across the United States. The Keystone’s northern segment was completed in 2010 and ran from the Canadian border, through North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska. The following year it was connected to the the tank farm in Cushing, Oklahoma via the Kansas Keystone-Cushing Extension. From there, the Gulf Coast Extension completed the Canadian oil’s route to Gulf Coast refineries.
As the KMP published the Cushing-Extension Pipeline route last year, the addition of the Keystone ND, SD, and NE routes now completes the north-south mapping of the larger Keystone Pipeline complex. These new maps show both Keystone XL and Keystone entry points at the Canadian border and follow the two routes to the Gulf Coast.
