The pipeline Lindsey mentioned is the Keystone pipeline. Please go to Wikipedia and look up the information on the Keystone pipeline. Much of this pipeline already exists and the extensions to it would be in the lower 48. Keystone presently runs from Hardisty in central Alberta Canada to Illinois. No new extensions in Canada or Alaska. The Keystone pipeline DOES NOT CONNECT TO ALASKA'S NORTH SLOPE. Gull island oil must be transported by oil tanker or go through the Alaska pipeline.
