    Energy Transfer Partners, the developer behind the so-called DAPL, is scheduled to start delivering oil on May 14 to Illinois, according to filings from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The oil project is expected to transport more than 500,000 barrels of oil a year across the eastern section of the country. ... The Obama administration rejected the previously approved pipeline last December ... President Donald Trump eventually issued orders approving the DAPL in January ... many demonstrators have begun diverting their attention to the equally contentious Keystone XL Pipeline, another oil pipeline Trump approved through executive order. Obama originally rejected...

    Environmental activists vowed over the weekend to fight the Keystone XL oil pipeline to the bitter end, insisting the Trump administrationís approval of the long-delayed project will not be the final word. Powerful green groups are launching a two-pronged strategy to block the pipeline in the streets and in the courts. First, they intend to use a state review process in Nebraska ó where Keystone still does not have a legal route, despite federal approval of the project ó to delay any movement forward. Nebraska state officials charged with approving the pipelineís path say a decision shouldnít be expected until...
  • Trump State Department Approves Keystone XL Pipeline Ė Creating THOUSANDS of New Jobs

    The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. (Bob McCarty) Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and again in 2015. This week the Trump State Department signed and issued permits for the completion of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

    President Trumpís pledge that new pipeline projects will use ďAmerican steelĒ will not apply to the Keystone XL project, according to media reports, directly contradicting the presidentís own words last week. Politico reported late Thursday night that a White House spokeswoman explained that the project, which has been in the works for the past decade, does not count as a ďnewĒ or ďretrofittedĒ pipeline, and therefore is not subject to Mr. Trumpís made-in-America requirement. Comments from TransCanada, the company proposing the project, on Friday morning seem to confirm the firm will not be forced to use all U.S. steel. The...

    Obama's veto hurt the Democrats and Hillary in the blue collar counties of the formerly Democratic states of Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin Remember in 2011 when former Canadian Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper publicly told a New York reporter after speaking before the U.N. General Assembly, that U.S. approval of the Keystone oil pipeline was a ďcomplete no brainerĒ. Harper was right then as Trump is right now for pushing forward on this oil pipeline once again. At the time, Harper knew that Americans and their government only acted in pursuit of their own national interests.

    President Trump plans to sign executive orders reviving the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, which had been stalled under the Obama administration, sources tell Fox News. The moves had been widely expected, as Trump blasted his predecessor for effectively blocking the projects amid environmental and other concerns. While the Canada-to-Texas Keystone project was at the center of a heated debate for years until the Obama administration rejected a key permit in November 2015, the Dakota pipeline more recently became the subject of fierce protests until the Army Corps of Engineers in December blocked construction of a controversial segment. The...

    Seven years of foot-dragging followed by a political denial cost the company a fortune. The boss explained in detail back in November why Obamaís refusal to permit the Keystone XL pipeline was a load of crap. Weíve talked about it a lot here, and when we do, we usually focus on all the economic benefits to the United States that were lost because Obama chose to cater to his extreme leftist environmentalist base rather than govern like a serious person. But we didnít focus quite as much on the blow this dealt to TransCanada, the company that proposed to build...

    Aides scrutinized, sometimes blocked release of documents requested under public-records law WASHINGTONóWhen Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, her staff scrutinized politically sensitive documents requested under public-records law and sometimes blocked their release, according to people with direct knowledge of the activities. In one instance, her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, told State Department records specialists she wanted to see all documents requested on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, and later demanded that some be held back. In another case, Ms. Millsís staff negotiated with the records specialists over the release of documents about former President Bill Clintonís speaking engagementsóalso...

    President Obama said Monday that the Keystone pipeline and other such fossil-fuel development projects would make Earth "uninhabitable." "We've got to lead by example, because ultimately, if we're going to prevent large parts of the Earth from becoming not only inhospitable but uninhabitable, then we're going to have to keep some fossil fuels in the ground rather than burn them," Mr. Obama told cheering grassroots supporters at a gathering in Washington.

    From one who specializes in it. It‚Äôs bad enough that President Obama dragged his feet for seven years before doing what everyone knew he was going to do. TransCanada, the Canadian government an awful lot of Americans who could have used the economic boost (including the folks in North Dakota and an awful lot of Obama‚Äôs union supporters) were left to twist in the wind while Obama pretended he was ‚Äúreviewing‚ÄĚ the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. Of course, he was doing no such thing. He knew on Day 1 he was going to reject it because that‚Äôs what his extreme...

Dakota Access, LLC wants to use the land for an underground pipeline that would carry roughly a half million barrels of crude oil from North Dakota, through Iowa and to a distribution center in Illinois.

    TORONTO ‚ÄĒ The company behind the controversial Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the U.S Gulf Coast has asked the U.S. State Department to pause its review of the project. TransCanada said Monday a suspension would be appropriate while it works with Nebraska authorities for approval of its preferred route through the state. The move comes before the Obama administration was widely expected to reject it. For seven years, the fate of the 1,179-mile (1,900 kilometer) long pipeline has languished amid debates over climate change, the intensive process of extracting Alberta‚Äôs oil and U.S. energy security The pipeline has long...

The new Canadian premier, Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau, has supported the construction of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline as well as TransCanadaís proposed $12 billion Energy East pipeline, both of which would carry bitumen from Albertaís vast oil sands to ports and world markets.

    RUSH: Hillary Clinton has come out against the Keystone pipeline. Folks, I hope she's doubling her security, because she and her husband have taken multiple millions of dollars in donations and speaking fees personally from banks and other industries in favor of the Keystone pipeline. She has taken money, I mean it's $3.6 million total. Investors have given both Clintons combined $3.4 million right into their pockets. This is not for their little Crime Family Foundation. This is straight to them. Canada banks are among the largest contributors. And Mrs. Clinton used to be for the Keystone XL pipeline. It's...

    Hillary Clinton wants to wait until she wins the White House before taking a stand on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. At a town hall in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Clinton responded to a question from the audience asking if she would sign a bill approving the pipeline by saying that she would not "second guess" President Obama's decision. Should the issue still be alive in January 2017, however, then Clinton will say what her position is. "If it's undecided when I become president, I will answer your question," Clinton said. That answer is sure to rile environmentalists who have...

    An environmental group whose request for records related to the Keystone Pipeline was reportedly hampered while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state is considering taking the case to court for the second time. Ben Schreiber, climate and energy program director at Friends of the Earth, said his group has weighed the option of relitigation in the weeks since learning that Clinton's chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, had interfered in the agency's handling of Freedom of Information Act requests for Keystone documents. While Schreiber said Friends of the Earth received a number of emails involving Clinton's top aides when the...
