Keystone XL ‘Anomalies' Prompt TransCanada To Repair Brand-New Pipeline

"In what at least one expert is calling a 'very unusual' move, TransCanada Corp. is reportedly digging up and rebuilding dozens of sections of the already-completed part of the Keystone XL pipeline."

"According to multiple news reports, a 100-kilometre stretch of the pipeline running near the Sabine River in north Texas is being dug up in multiple spots just months after parts of the pipeline were originally put in the ground.

TransCanada is waiting for permission from the U.S. government to build the stretch of the Keystone pipeline that runs from the Canadian border to Cushing, Okla.

But the part south of Cushing that runs to the Gulf Coast doesn’t require federal approval, and TransCanada hit the half-way mark in the construction of that stretch earlier this year."
