The line will carry crude from the oil storage hub of Cushing, Oklahoma, to refineries in Port Arthur, Texas.

The line is currently being filled, the note said. The note was provided to Platts by a TransCanada spokesman.


About 3 million barrels of crude is now being injected into the line in Cushing and moving down to the Texas Gulf Coast area, the note said, adding that once line fill is complete, the company will move into final phase of commissioning meters, pump stations and other related facilities.

The line is part of the highly contentious Keystone XL pipeline project which, if it is approved by the US government for a trans-border permit, would carry crude from Hardisty, Alberta, down to US Gulf Coast refineries.
