Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.) said he thinks President Obama will approve the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
In the wake of multiple crude-by-rail train accidents in North Dakota — leaving railcars ablaze and nearby residents at risk –Hoeven said on “Platts Energy Week” that the U.S. needs more pipelines.
The U.S. needs pipelines “not only to improve conditions in terms of rail, but trucks,” Hoeven said on Sunday. “With the Keystone pipeline, we’d take 500 trucks a day off our roads in western North Dakota.”
“So clearly pipelines are a part of the solution. But also we have to do everything we can in terms of safety when we talk about running crude by train or by truck,” he added.
With U.S. crude oil production reaching near 20-year highs, the country’s energy infrastructure — specifically transportation — has become a looming concern.
