Keystone Pipeline Construction Continues

1.2 miles of the proposed 1,200 has been laid in northern Montana despite unresolved court cases.

The Keystone XL oil sands pipeline has begun to move forward, even without the permits necessary for TC energy to continue its construction. On May 15, a federal judge cancelled the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ permit, necessary for construction to run the pipeline through hundreds of state and federal wetlands, streams and lakes that currently lay in its path.

Because of possible contamination of waterways due to the potential for oil spills from pipe leaks, the pipeline continues to be protested by environmentalists and Native American tribes. Protests and other lawsuits have continued to be enacted during the pandemic lockdown.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That federal courts would continue to look into this matter and make rulings with discernment.
  • For the state governors of Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota as they work with Native American tribes over this issue.
  • That respect and care for each other and God’s creation would be present in discussions of the Keystone Pipeline.
