A lot of people are wondering when they will see a real oil pipeline from the Gulf of Mexico to the West Coast.

Other oil companies are also working on their own pipelines.
The Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from Alberta, Canada to refineries in Texas, has been under development for years.
In 2016, the Army Corps of Engineers approved a proposal to build two oil pipelines from the U
