LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -The developer of the Keystone XL oil pipeline says it plans to review a Nebraska regulator's decision to approve a different route through the state than what the company had preferred.
TransCanada CEO Russ Girling said Monday that the company will assess how the ruling would affect the project's schedule and cost. He offered no further comment.
The alternative route follows the same path as the company's preferred route through northern Nebraska then veers southeast, away from the diagonal path of the preferred route, until it meets up with the original Keystone pipeline in southern Stanton County, Nebraska.
The alternative route would then run alongside the existing pipeline until it connects with that pipeline in Steele City, Nebraska.
