    Time to Build Keystone XL      

Dear David,

During more than five years of review, five exhaustive environmental assessments have concluded that the Keystone XL pipeline is safe for the environment. Now that the recently released State Department review determined yet again that the pipeline would not lead to a significant increase in greenhouse gas emissions – a criterion President Obama identified as crucial to his administration’s approval of the project -- it’s time to focus on the numerous benefits Keystone XL (KXL) will bring.

Energy and National Security

  • 42,100 Reasons to Build the Keystone XL PipelineWith KXL, crude imports from Canada could reach 4 million barrels a day by 2030 -- twice what we currently import from the Persian Gulf
  • Approving KXL and other smart policies would allow the U.S. to meet 100 percent of our liquid fuel needs from stable North American sources within 10 years

Jobs and Economic Growth

  • 42,100 jobs supported during the pipeline’s construction phase
  • Increased investment in Canadian oil sands – served by the Keystone XL – can create more than 500,000 new U.S. jobs and generate $775 billion in GDP by 2035
  • $2 billion in earnings generated throughout the U.S.
  • $3.4 billion contributed to U.S. GDP
  • $55.6 billion in property taxes generated across three states in Keystone XL’s first full year of operation

With environmental concerns repeatedly put to rest through extensive study, the Obama administration must now determine whether building the Keystone XL pipeline is in our national interest. All the evidence, along with 72 percent of American voters, points to “yes.”

Energy Tomorrow is a project of the American Petroleum Institute – the only national trade association that represents all aspects of America’s oil and natural gas industry – speaking for the industry to the public, Congress and the Executive Branch, state governments and the media. Rapid growth in natural gas production, thanks to vast shale deposits and hydraulic fracturing, is reviving America’s manufacturing and other sectors while helping reduce U.S. carbon emissions to a 20-year low. U.S. crude oil production has reached its highest point since 1997, due to production from shale and other tight rock formations, while reducing imports to their lowest level in more than 20 years.
