Nicholas S. Johnson 4/9/15 Exam 2 extra credit CBE-217 Materials and Balances Keystone Pipeline Debate What is the Keystone Pipeline? The Keystone Pipeline System is an oil pipeline system, owned by TransCanada, running from Canada through the United States. Contrary to popular belief, the pipeline is already mostly operational and is used to transport hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil from the Canadian oil sands across the U.S. border into Illinois. The current proposal would run the pipeline through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. The current standings of the Keystone Pipeline System can be seen below. There is much debate for the proposed section of the pipeline between its advocates and environmentalists.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
