Keystone XL pipeline security



Published: Tue, May 7, 2013 @ 12:00 a.m.

McCook (Neb.) Daily Gazette: The Nebraska State Patrol invited county sheriffs and prosecutors along the path of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline to a meeting to discuss security.

The pipeline hasn’t been given final federal approval — the Environmental Protection Agency is questioning the State Department’s environmental impact statement.

Pipeline opponents are already in full protest mode, but vowed not to stop even if President Obama signs off on the project, which will deliver some 830,000 barrels of U.S. and Canadian crude oil to Texas refineries on the Gulf Coast.

Spokeswoman Jane Kleeb of Bold Nebraska said there likely would be peaceful acts of civil disobedience in the state.

No guarantee

She may be right, but there’s no guarantee protests would be as peaceful as they have been, for the most part, during construction of the leg of the pipeline between Cushing, Oklahoma and the Gulf Coast.

But modern realities must be taken into account long after the pipeline is constructed, if it is. Pipelines, like other type of vital infrastructure, are potential targets for terrorism, foreign or domestic.
