Keystone fails Texas common-carrier test, landowners say
Sure is a lot of push back compared to other Texas projects.
Rejecting an underground pipeline for that price!?
I don't get it. It's not like the cows are going to notice it! LOL
David Holland, whose cattle and rice farm lies next to a cluster of refineries...
I don't see what the problem is when you see all of the easements already in place.

Plenty of pipelines cross his property now, he said. But the Keystone line would create what he's been told would be an invisible barrier that could not be crossed with heavy equipment used in farming, which is a restriction not imposed by other pipelines, he said.
Holland said he doesn't oppose Keystone's line, which would carry crude oil from tar sands in Canada's northwest. He does oppose TransCanada's lack of what he considers adequate environmental protection and a lowball compensation offer, which he said would put him $30,000 in the hole.
$446,864 is lowball?!
