Keystone environmental review cleared of conflict of interest charges


The State Department acted properly in its choice of an outside contractor to review the Keystone XL oil pipeline, the department's inspector general report says, rejecting accusations by environmentalists of undue influence by the pipeline's developer on a draft federal environmental review of the project.

TransCanada (TRP) had recommended four companies to State to conduct the environmental review but did not tell the department it had previously worked with one of the companies.

Keystone supporters say the report should clear the way for the project's approval.
