TransCanada Files Lawsuit to Stop Keystone Pipeline Protests

May 12, 2013
(The Oklahoman)

Energy infrastructure company TransCanada has asked an Oklahoma judge to help keep protesters away from its pipeline construction sites.

The company is building a 485-mile oil pipeline between Cushing's storage hub and refineries along the Gulf Coast.

Construction is expected to be completed this summer, but crews working in Oklahoma have been hampered about a half-dozen times by protesters affiliated with the Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance.

TransCanada filed a lawsuit Monday in Atoka County seeking a temporary restraining order against the environmental group and 21 individuals involved in the protests.
