Another senior official departs from the Keystone XL project

Keith Benes, a U.S. State Department lawyer who played a key role in the Keystone XL pipeline review is moving on, marking the latest senior official to depart from TransCanada's (NYSE:TRP) long-delayed project.

The move could spark some fresh conversations about Keystone XL, prior to the lawsuits and rulings that will come about later this year.

Benes' review concluded that the pipeline might encourage Canadian oil sands development, but would not meaningfully worsen global climate change.

    Learn to write at least a 10th grade level. I know who Keith Benes is. If I did not and read this, I would think he was a TRP lawyer leaving a sinking ship.


    Never mind -- he is leaving a sinking ship!
