In total, the current capacity for oil pipelines delivering all types of crude to the U.S. is about 3.4 million barrels per day. These pipelines are all operated by four companies.Pipeline Owner/Operator Capacity Destination Express-Platte Spectra Energy (NYSE: SE ) 280,000 bpd Wood River, Ill. Keystone TransCanada 590,000 bpd Cushing, Okla. Enbridge and Lakehead System Enbridge (NYSE: ENB ) and Enbridge Energy Partners (NYSE: EEP ) 2.5 million bpd Multiple, but 190,000 bpd to Cushing, Okla.
For the existing Canada-U.S. pipelines, there is probably little to no effect whether the pipeline gets built or not. The capacity for these pipelines is already contracted out, and a majority of the oil from these pipelines goes to either the Midwest or Rocky Mountain regions.
