According to a White House statement, US President Donald Trump has granted permission to TransCanada Keystone Pipeline, L.P. to construct, connect, operate, and maintain pipeline facilities at the international border of the United States and Canada at Phillips County, Montana, for the import of oil from Canada to the United States. This move circumvents a court ruling and federal environmental reviews blocking the construction of the pipeline in November 2018.

“President Trump has been clear that he wants to create jobs and advance US energy security and the Keystone XL pipeline does both of those things,” said Russ Girling, TransCanada’s president and chief executive officer. “We thank President Trump for his leadership and steadfast support to enable the advancement of this critical energy infrastructure project for North America,” he added.

The pipeline which will run from Hardisty, Alberta, to Steele City, Nebraska, will deliver crude oil to markets in the US.
