President Trump approves Keystone XL Pipeline project

President Trump approves Keystone XL Pipeline project
The US Department of State has signed and issued a presidential permit to construct the Keystone XL Pipeline.

The project represents an investment of more than $15 billion in liquids and natural gas projects that will create thousands of jobs and will create economic benefits across the US.

TransCanada will continue to engage key stakeholders and neighbours throughout Nebraska, Montana and South Dakota to obtain the necessary permits and approvals to advance the project.

The company has confirmed that it has discontinued its claim under Chapter 11 of the North American Free Trade Agreement and will end its US Constitutional challenge.

Russ Girling, TransCanada's president and CEO, says: 'This is a significant milestone for the Keystone XL project.

'We greatly appreciate President Trump's administration for reviewing and approving this important initiative and we look forward to working with them as we continue to invest in and strengthen North America's energy infrastructure.'
