The Keystone XL project has been a contentious topic for seven years - since it was granted its first presidential permission to be built on March 8, 2008.

Recently, the venture was vetoed in what many considered to be the last course of action needed to officially kill it.

But they're wrong. With the following two factors, the Keystone XL project could come back yet again...

Keystone XL

The Keystone XL has become a basic element in America's new energy security. By connecting to the Canadian gas supply, the pipeline could mean America's energy independence is only a few years away.

And Greece is following suit, welcoming a connection to Russia's gas supply.

Here's exactly what's going to happen with these two proposed cross-border pipelines...

The Biggest Fallacy of the Keystone Pipeline Approval Fight

The battle over the Keystone pipeline has become one of the foremost issues in Washington today.

That's the problem.

The great fallacy of the Keystone XL pipeline is that whether it gets built or not is much less important than craven politicians in Washington would have you believe. Both Republicans and Democrats have turned up the rhetoric on the Keystone pipeline mainly to serve selfish political interests.

It's amazing they can keep a straight face when they're saying these things...

Late Friday afternoon, the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline cleared one of its biggest hurdles.

In its Final Environmental Impact Statement, the U.S. Department of State concluded that completing the pipeline's northern leg would not have a major impact on global greenhouse gas emissions.

This Pipeline Will Make Investors More than Keystone Ever Could

Look for the Obama administration to delay its Keystone Pipeline decision until after the 2014 election as it's preoccupied by ongoing scandals and the debate about fracking in the United States.

With House and Senate Democrats now vulnerable over these scandals and Obamacare costs, the President is expected to appease his base and continue to double down on alternative energy projects at the Department of Energy.

A 795,000 Mile Long Pipeline to Big Energy Profits

At the request of a major player in oil and gas pipelines, I was given a major task.

I had to estimate how much of the U.S gas and oil infrastructure needs to be replaced by 2025.

Keystone Oil Pipeline Decision Key to Obama's Energy Policy

One of the major policy decisions facing U.S. President Barack Obama is whether or not to approve the Keystone oil pipeline across the Canadian border into the United States.

If approved, the pipeline - to be built by TransCanada (NYSE: TRP) - would transport about 1.3 million barrels of oil a day from Canada's oil sands to refineries along the Gulf coast.

The Keystone oil pipeline, if approved, would benefit U.S. energy security. Not to mention TransCanada and players in the Canadian oil sands industry such as Suncor Energy (NYSE: SU).

This decision is one investors in the energy sector need to pay attention to as it will set the tone for energy policy in President Obama's second term.
