TransCanada sees no Keystone XL delay from Nebraska court’s ruling

TransCanada Corp. does not expect a Nebraska court’s decision to affect the US Department of State’s consideration of the proposed Keystone XL crude oil pipeline project’s cross-border permit application, the Calgary company said.

It said Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning’s (R) immediate appeal effectively stayed Lancaster County, Neb., District Judge Stephanie F. Stacy’s Feb. 19 decision. She ruled that 2012 legislation giving Gov. Dave Heineman (R) the power to approve a new route for the project was unconstitutional under state law (OGJ Online, Feb. 20, 2014).

“As we said last week, this latest development concerning Keystone XL is a solvable problem and we are undeterred,” a TransCanada spokesman said on Feb. 24.

“We have dealt with many issues related to this project in the past and are confident we can overcome this latest hurdle,” he said, adding, “It is our view the current 90-day national interest determination process that is now under way should not be impacted by the Nebraska lower court ruling since the approved re-route remains valid during appeal.”
