Very interesting report about massive corrosion found on a section of the existing KXL pipeline.
Follow the links to read the report.
I am still studying it, so don't have much to say yet, except: "Fascinating".
Basically this is analysis of corrosion anomalies found in the Cushing to Patoka section of the KXL.
They are saying the root cause is a combination of stray DC currents
(but strangely do not speculate a possible source) in combination with metal munching bacteria.
Essentially a BRAND NEW PIPELINE.
Be sure to read the report linked at the following text: "published here on DeSmog for the first time publicly"
