Breitling Oil and Gas Morning Podcast #158 9-26-12

TransCanada Corp. filed a supplemental environmental report with Nebraska’s Department of Environmental Quality that contains a preferred alternative route for the proposed Keystone XL crude oil pipeline across the state.

The recent filing respects NDEQ timelines and the US Department of State’s overall process in developing a new route for the project through the state and was developed based on extensive feedback from Nebraskans and reflects a shared desire to minimize the disturbance of land and sensitive resources in the state.   NDEQ Director Mike Linder said it was an important step, and the state agency would thoroughly review it.  Early comments reported that an initial scan of the report indicates that it responds to some of the comments raised by the NDEQ and the public, but a full evaluation will now begin and hopefully the pipeline is in the final stages of getting approved.
