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.
