Construction is a major part of the construction of pipelines and other infrastructure projects.
The amount of work involved in building a pipeline is generally divided into three different categories: construction, pipeline and final assembly.
These three categories generally vary from project to project.
This infographic explains how much it costs to build a Keystone XL Pipeline.1 / 6 3 / 6 1 / 6 The first construction project, which is usually carried out by contractors, is typically a long-term project.
The pipeline would carry oil sands crude from Alberta to refineries along the U.S.-Canadian border.
Once the pipeline is complete, it would transport crude from the Alberta oil sands to refiners in the Gulf of Mexico.
The Keystone XL project would eventually reach refineries in Texas and Illinois, where it would be shipped to Gulf Coast refineries for processing.
Construction and completion of the pipeline would take about a year and a half.
Pipeline construction is usually completed over two or three phases, with each phase lasting about four years.
The first phase of the Keystone pipeline, which will carry crude from Keystone, Alberta to Gulf of Canada, will be completed in mid-2016.
The second phase of construction, which would transport oil sands bitumen from Alberta, Canada, to refines in Texas, will begin in early 2017.
The final phase of pipeline construction, that would carry bitumen to refiner terminals in Illinois, is expected to begin in 2018.2 / 6 Construction of the proposed Keystone XL XL pipeline, part of a $7.8 billion project, is completed in New York.
The project would transport 1.5 million barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta’s oil sands region to refinery terminals along the Texas-Illinois border.
Keystone XL would carry 1.7 million barrels per day of oil sands product to the Gulf Coast.
The company hopes to complete construction by 2022.
3 / 4 Keystone XL, part 3 of a proposed $7,8 billion Keystone XL construction project is completed.
The pipe would transport more than 1.4 million barrels a day of crude from oil sands in Alberta to a refinery in Illinois.
The portion of the project that would ship bitumen through the Keystone Pipeline would begin in 2021.
The full pipeline would have a capacity of nearly 5 million barrels.
It would then travel along a network of pipeline segments and conveyor belts, to reach refiners along the Gulf coast.
The initial portion of Keystone XL will be carried by a new TransCanada Corporation (TSX:TCX) pipeline.
The proposed pipeline is also known as Keystone XL-C.
Keystone will carry up to 1.3 million barrels each day of bitumen, and TransCanada plans to begin constructing Keystone XL’s third phase by 2021.3 / 4 Construction of a pipeline and compressor station near St. Paul, Minnesota.
Construction of Keystone’s pipeline is completed on March 11, 2020.4 / 6 A section of Keystone will pass by St. John’s, New Brunswick, Canada.
The new Transcanada Keystone XL line, which carries bitumen under the pipeline from Alberta and to refinemas in Texas for processing, is due to be completed by 2019.
The line will have a total capacity of about 3.1 million barrels (or 5.5 percent of Keystone), according to TransCanada.
The Transcanadian line would carry about 2.4 billion barrels of oil.
The total capacity for the pipeline under the United States and Canada, according to the United Nations Energy Agency, is 8.4 trillion barrels.4/ 6 A pipeline and a compressor station at the proposed TransCanada Keystone XL compressor station.4.5 / 6 Keystone XL is seen on a satellite image in St. Louis, Missouri.
The Canadian company TransCanada says that it has completed all phases of the Canadian project, including construction, construction design, pipeline construction and production.
The terminal is expected in mid 2017.
TransCanada has been approved by the U,S.
government to begin construction on Keystone XL.
Transcanadas plans are to begin operation in 2020.
Keystone is one of several pipelines to move oil from Alberta into refineries and other facilities in Texas.
Keystone’s proposed route would have it run from Alberta through the Gulf to refine facilities in Illinois and Louisiana.
In the future, TransCanada hopes to expand the pipeline’s capacity to move a portion of its product through the Canadian-built Keystone XL to a pipeline in Illinois that would bring it through the Mississippi River to refuelling terminals in Texas before it reaches refineries on the Gulf.
The entire pipeline would run under the Gulf from Alberta.
The price of the crude oil used to make the crude would be higher than the international price.
However, the oil will be used to transport natural gas, which can be expensive in areas where it is difficult to get fuel for the energy-intensive industry.
The international price of crude was $105 a barrel last year, down from $115
