ST. JOSEPH — Eight million barrels of oil are flowing through the Keystone Pipeline in Kansas and Missouri and more is expected later this month.

TransCanada is installing the 1,073-mile pipeline from Alberta, Canada, to a Wood River, Ill., refinery.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports that a TransCanada spokesman said Tuesday that the 8 million barrels have already reached Missouri. The company hopes to eventually move 435,000 barrels of oil through the pipeline every day.

The pipeline cuts through Buchanan, Clinton and Caldwell counties in Missouri and Nemaha, Brown and Doniphan counties in Kansas. Another phase is being constructed from Nebraska to Oklahoma, with eventual expansion planned to the Gulf Coast.
