I need some review info on the Keystone pipeline:

True or false: the pipeline will go to refineries in Houston, and all the refined oil products will be shipped to China.

Related questions: where does the oil that is shipped by rail today come from, and where is it going? Would any of the oil shipped by rail today be transferred to the Keystone?

3. IT is to be refined by the Koch bros' facility in TX; in a enterprise zone and pay no taxes to

be shipped to China.

The tar sludge that is now refined in the Midwest will also be shipped to TX RAISING the price of gas in the US.

5. Thank you for that roundup of info.

I'm still wondering if there isn't some slight of hand here regarding the rail tanker cars. It doesn't make sense to me that oil would travel by rail from Alberta to Texas via Quebec, Pennsylvania or West Virginia. Where is that oil going today, and would it be transferred to Keystone or continue to travel via rail?

6. From my understanding, Keystone is for the oil coming from

 

the tar sands in Alberta (as it would be owned by a Canadian company), not for existing oil being transported already.
