Energy expert says Keystone XL Pipeline will enhance nation's energy security

March 31, 2014

A national energy expert says the proposed Keystone XL pipeline would help revive a sluggish national economy and enhance the nation’s energy security.

Donald P. Loren, a retired rear admiral with the U.S. Navy and a former deputy assistant secretary of defense for Homeland Security Integration, says the pipeline would enable the United States to fulfill its energy needs without buying oil from unstable parts of the world.

Recent national polls indicate that nearly two-thirds of Americans support the construction of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, a 1,700-mile, $5.4 billion project to transport oil from the tar sands of Alberta to the Gulf Coast.
