U.S. court denies permitting request
On Monday, July 6, the U.S. Supreme Court partially denied a request from the U.S. Justice Department to stay a lower court’s order which vacated Nationwide Permit 12.
The Supreme Court stayed the decision, except as it applied to Keystone XL, which means the project will not be able to obtain authorization under Nationwide Permit 12 for dredge and fill activities in wetlands or waterbodies.
While this ruling from the Supreme Court is positive for the oil and gas industry overall, it continues to delay large portions of construction on our Keystone XL project and the thousands of high-paying union jobs that come with it.
TC Energy remains committed to the future of this project. We will continue to evaluate our 2020 U.S. scope. In Canada, our work in 2020 remains unchanged.
