North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven and Canada's ambassador to the United States are continuing their push for quick approval of the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
Hoeven and Canadian Ambassador Gary Doer met with North Dakota trade representatives Wednesday in Bismarck. They say TransCanada's proposed pipeline will help provide energy security and economic growth for both nations.
The project would move 830,000 barrels of oil a day from Canada to Texas' Gulf Coast refineries. It also would move 100,000 barrels of domestic oil daily from North Dakota's Bakken region.
The project has lingered for more than five years and become a symbol of the political debate over climate change. Backers say it would create jobs and boost North American energy independence.
