    The Keystone Pipeline project is a proposed crude oil line that would run
from Alberta to markets in Illinois. The Canadian portion of the line would
extend from Hardisty, Alberta to a point near Haskett, Manitoba. The proposed
project involves the acquisition and conversion of 864 kilometres (km) of
existing gas pipeline to an oil transmission pipeline. Approximately 371 km of
new pipeline would be constructed as part of the proposed project, as well as
the construction and operation of pump stations, tanks and other related works
and activities. The estimated cost of the project is $664 million.

    The NEB is an independent federal agency that regulates parts of Canada's
energy industry. Its purpose is to promote safety and security, environmental
protection, and efficient energy infrastructure and markets in the Canadian
public interest, within the mandate set by Parliament in the regulation of
pipelines, energy development and trade.
