Keystone & Keystone XL Pipelines

Keystone (2009) & Keystone XL (2015) Pipeline Corridor USA & Canada

This interactive file maps the publicly-available GIS data for the Keystone and Keystone XL pipelines, including the Cushing Extension and the Gulf Coast Extension. As neither TransCanada Corporation nor the U.S. Department of State have been forthcoming with the GIS information called for in the Keystone’s environmental impact statements, including milepost markers, the EIS reports cannot be fully evaluated. These maps are compiled from alternative public resources and, while not suitable for EIS evaluaiton, form the basis for the KMP’s broader discussion. Through writings, photography, and social media the KMP explores energy policy, climate change, and transparency. In and of themselves, the maps are an important resource for communities, landowners, non-profits, journalists, and other stakeholders assessing the potential impacts of the pipelines. More information the KMP can be found on the About page.
