Fonti Engergetiche Transfrontaliere E Diritto Ambientale, Politica E Politiche: Il Caso Del Gasdotto Keystone Pipeline in Canada E Negli Stati Uniti (Transboundary Environmental Energy and Environmental Law, Policy and Politics: The Keystone Pipeline Case)


The Keystone XL pipeline refers to one segment of a multi stage set of projects which is aimed at bringing oil sands bitumen from the sand tars area of Alberto, Canada to refineries in the United States. The first three phases of the project are either operational or under construction and crude oil is being delivered to Mid-West markets.
