TransCanada must recertify South Dakota pipeline permit, regulator says

TransCanada (TRP) faces a new regulatory hurdle and likely additional legal challenges in its effort to build the Keystone XL pipeline with the news it will now have to recertify the Alberta-to-Nebraska conduit where it passes through South Dakota.

The state approved the project in 2010, and while the permit has not expired, TRP needs to “certify that the conditions placed upon the pipeline” by the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission are all still valid and that the company will meet all of those conditions.

Anti-pipeline group Bold Nebraska, for one, says it plans to take advantage of the re-certification process to challenge the permit on grounds of tribal rights, water protection and the need to avoid the Sandhills that reach into South Dakota.

    Canada and TRP should tell all involved; call us when you get real.

    What's the old saying; Too little, too late..... Canadian government in process of approving pipeline to Vancouver from Alberta. Already lining up Asian customer's.
    Keystone will be obsolete before it is ever approved. What a joke the USA government has become.
