NPPD Transmission Lines To Be Delayed By Pipeline
Posted: 18 February, 2013
COLUMBUS (AP) - A Nebraska utility says the new route for a proposed oil pipeline that would carry Canadian crude oil through the state will delay work on electric transmission lines for the pipeline.
Nebraska Public Power District officials say they won't be able to build the transmission lines by the deadline TransCanada set for the end of 2014. NPPD Chief Operating Officer Tom Kent says there's no way the transmission lines will be ready by 2015.
