Keystone XL moves forward, from Oklahoma to Texas

he much fought-over Keystone XL oil pipeline will begin construction in Oklahoma and Texas, despite having been denied a presidential permit for the entire 1,700 mile project.
The Obama Administration had rejected the project in November 2011, saying more study and a possible re-routing was needed in Nebraska where the route slices through the Sandhills region above the Ogallala Aquifer.
