TransCanada Reapplies For Pipeline

KSCB News - May 4, 2012 8:08 am

A Canadian company that wants to build the

disputed Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S. says it has submitted a

new application for the project after changing the route to avoid

environmentally sensitive land in Nebraska.

TransCanada says it filed a new application Friday for the

project to carry oil from western Canada to Steele City, Neb., to

link up there with other pipelines to carry oil to refineries on

the Texas Gulf Coast.

President Barack Obama blocked the project earlier this year,

citing uncertainty over the Nebraska route, and drawing fire from

Republicans. TransCanada proposed a new route last month that would

veer east around the groundwater-rich Sandhills region.
