TransCanada's Request for Dismissal of KXL Permit Application Granted

TransCanada's Request for Dismissal of KXL Permit Application Granted

As of today, TransCanada has no pipeline route under review in Nebraska. The application for Keystone XL permit review has been dismissed.

Today, TransCanada requested the Nebraska Public Service Commission allow it to dismiss its application for KXL permit review across Nebraska. The NE PSC granted the dismissal. TransCanada has no pipeline route under review in Nebraska at this time.

You can view the Nebraska Public Service Commission’s order here. The contents of the document state that on October 5, 2015, TransCanada filed an application with the NE PSC seeking approval for the proposed route of its Keystone XL pipeline through the state of Nebraska. Today, November 18, TransCanada filed a Motion to Dismiss that application, which was granted. The planning conference that was scheduled for tomorrow was consequently canceled.

You can view TransCanada’s Motion to Dismiss Without Prejudice here. In it, TransCanada cites The U.S. State Department’s Decision of National Interest Determination, issued on November 6, which denied the company’s application for presidential permit. TransCanada continued, “In light of the time requirements under the Major Pipeline Oil Siting Act for a Commission decision, Keystone is requesting its pending Application be dismissed without prejudice.”

In light of this, TransCanada has no pipeline route under review in Nebraska at this time. Congratulations to our Landowner clients who intervened in the PSC process – another victory!
