Keystone pipeline rejection means oil tankers could multiply in Strait of Juan de Fuca  – Seattle Times


This was a topic of discussion at the Annual Northwest Straits Conference Friday. State Senator Kevin Ranker brought this up and said we have even more work to do because of XL not happening. The Pacific NW is now the end point of the virtual pipeline already created between North Dakota and here.

President Obama’s decision Friday to reject the Keystone XL pipeline puts a fresh spotlight on other efforts to bring Canadian crude to market, including a $5.4 billion project to boost oil flows to British Columbia. The oil piped from Alberta would be targeted for maritime export, dramatically increasing the number of oil tankers traversing the Strait of Juan de Fuca and raising environmental concerns among Washington state Department of Ecology (DOE) officials.  Hal Bernton reports.
