Landrieu: Build on success of GOMESA by expanding revenue sharing partnership to all coastal states
Senate Passes Landrieu Bill to Help Southeast Louisiana Historical Sites Become National Park
Energy Committee Passes Landrieu Bill to Approve Keystone Pipeline
Two events in the last 24 hours underscore clearly why today’s vote to approve the Keystone Pipeline was important. The Canadian government has conditionally approved the 730-mile Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline to send oil sands to the West Coast of Canada instead of the Gulf Coast. And, yesterday, al-Qaeda affiliated militants attacked the largest oil refinery in Iraq that refines 350,000 barrels of oil per day—nearly the same amount the United States imports from Iraq. The Keystone Pipeline would transport nearly two and a half times that amount to American refineries.
