TransCanada has begun working in Oklahoma on the southern segment of its Keystone XL pipeline.



“It’s kind of like a slow-moving train,” project spokesman Jim Prescott said. “Once it gets going, it takes a while to get up to speed with all the crews that have to fall in, one behind the other.”


Prescott said crews are working along the pipeline route from south of Cushing to the Texas border. They are relocating utilities and clearing right of way before the pipe is buried.


“We’re still a few weeks away from ditch work,” he said
