ABSTRACT

Keystone XL Pipeline: The Saga Continues [June 11, 2019]   [open pdf - 653KB]

From the Document: "On March 29, 2019, President Trump issued a new Presidential Permit for the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline, superseding the prior Presidential Permit issued by the U.S. State Department in 2017. By issuing the new permit personally, rather than delegating his permit authority as before, the President pursued a new approach to advance the pipeline project in the face of ongoing legal challenges. The pipeline's developer, TC Energy (previously named TransCanada), has not yet made major capital commitments to the project as it evaluates changing oil market conditions and seeks 'a clear path to construction.' Congress has acted in the past to influence the pipeline's approval and many Members remain interested in its development."
