The Keystone XL pipeline is one of the most controversial projects of 2014.

It is due to run from Hardisty, Alberta and extend almost 2 thousand kilometres across the US-Canadian border to Steele city Nebraska.

And then on to East Texas - where the southern leg of the pipeline is set to become operational in January.

Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from East Texas.
