Lincoln, Neb – The fight for the Keystone XL pipeline continues. The Nebraska Public Service Commission set a date in which they will give both parties time to provide comments on their motions. Both parties are currently seeking clarification on the previous decision by the Public Service Commission to approve an alternative route for the pipeline.
TransCanada is currently in the process of evaluating if the alternative route is feasible due to additional cost and time needed to gain approval from landowners on the new route. Opponents of the project are looking to block the pipeline through a series of legal battles.
The date both parties will appear before the public service commission is set for Tuesday, December 12th at the PSC hearing room in Lincoln.
Below is the full text from the Nebraska Public Service Commission:
