"Pipeline Equipment is the example of a mid-size to small-size company, private company, who are really taking advantage of the economic stimulus that a project that Keystone XL and all the other projects bring to the economy."

TransCanada said the project will create 9,000 jobs nationwide and pump billions of dollars into the economy.

Detractors say the jobs would be far fewer and the pipeline would be a threat to the environment of the central plains and the underground aquifer it would cross.
