    The Tar Sands is expected to produce for 85 years at 3.5mbd.

    60tcf of conventional natgas in Alaska plus the 70tcf of nat gas conventional reserves in western Canada, all of that nat gas would be just enough (?)  to power the Tar Sands for 85 years.

    Nat gas pipeline proposals from Prudhoe Bay and Mackenzie River Delta areas to Alberta, IIRC 4-5 different proposals.

    Plus 3-4 oil pipelines from Alberta to Pacific coast, plus proposed super tanker loading facilities in Houston and British Columbia.

    They knew the first Keystone route would be rejected, this is SOP in natgas pipeline thinking. Did the same in Connecticut recently, they pick route that requires most eminent domain thru wealthy areas. Then they show true colors, they route that gets built is never the first to be proposed.

    Tar Sands Partners are savvy.
