The proposed northern portion of TransCanada’s (NYSE: TRP  ) Keystone XL pipeline, which would transport massive quantities of mainly heavy crude oil from Alberta’s oil sands to the U.S., has drawn harsh criticism from groups that oppose its construction largely on environmental grounds. They argue that the pipeline would promote further development in Alberta’s oil sands, a region whose oil production is thought to be significantly worse for the environment because it spews more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than more conventional methods of oil production.
