Hoeven: TransCanada Offered New Pipeline Route
November 15, 2011, 7:09 AM
BISMARCK, ND -
North Dakota Sen. John Hoeven says he has talked to TransCanada Corp. officials about rerouting the Keystone XL pipeline through the state.
The U.S. government last week delayed a decision on granting a permit for Keystone XL, principally because of concerns about the pipeline's environmental impact, particularly in Nebraska. TransCanada announced Monday it will make changes in the Nebraska route.
TransCanada's first Keystone pipeline, which delivers crude from Canada's Alberta province to Illinois and Oklahoma, runs through eastern North Dakota.
Hoeven says he's talked to TransCanada officials about the Keystone XL pipeline using that existing North Dakota route.
The disputed Keystone XL route runs from Alberta through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas, but does not traverse North Dakota.
