Export Limited Pipeline Folly

Initially I understood the problem to be that this would be "dirty" fuel....

So, why is this needed?

Who does it pay back?

Corruption is the middle name of this know the one that avoids its middle name.

"Three phases of the project are in operation and the fourth is awaiting U.S. government approval. Upon completion, the Keystone Pipeline System would consist of the completed 2,151-mile (3,462 km) Keystone Pipeline (Phases I and II), Keystone Gulf Coast Expansion (Phase III) and the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline Project (Phase IV). Phase 1, delivering oil from Hardisty, Alberta, to Steele City, Wood River, and Patoka, was completed in the summer of 2010. Phase 2, the Keystone-Cushing extension, was completed in February 2011 with the pipeline from Steele City to storage and distribution facilities at Cushing, Oklahoma.[3] These two phases have the capacity to deliver up to 590,000 barrels per day (94,000 m3/d) of oil into the Mid-West refineries.[3] Phase III, the Gulf Coast Extension, which was opened in January 2014, has capacity up to 700,000 barrels per day (110,000 m3/d).[4] The proposed controversial Phase IV, the Keystone XL Pipeline Project, would begin in Hardisty, Alberta, and extend to Steele City.[5]" 


If you have some hard facts as to why this is a good away!
