TransCanada Corporation has thanked President Donald Trump for affirming his support for the Keystone XL pipeline project by issuing a new Presidential Permit.

The president’s action clarifies the national importance of Keystone XL and aims to bring more than 10 years of environmental review to closure.

“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.”

“The magnitude of the work on this project has been extensive. The Keystone XL pipeline has been studied more than any other pipeline in history and the environmental reviews are clear – the project can be built and operated in an environmentally sustainable and responsible way,” added Girling.

Keystone XL will create thousands of jobs and deliver economic benefits across North America while being the safest, most efficient and environmentally sound way to move crude oil to the US Gulf Coast.
