Nebraska PS Commission deny TransCanada request to amend Keystone XL application
Petroleumworld 12 20 2017
Nebraska's Public Service Commission on Tuesday denied TransCanada Corp's motion to amend its application for a route for the proposed Keystone XL pipeline through the state, a move that the company had hoped would head off legal challenges against the project.
The commission approved a path for Keystone XL last month, but it was not for the preferred route cited in the application. Instead the commission approved an “alternative mainline” route, a move pipeline opponents have said violated state statutes.
After the approval, TransCanada asked the commission if it could retroactively amend the route application, saying it hoped to prevent lawsuits.
