TransCanada submitted a new application to the State Department Friday for its Keystone XL pipeline, and it includes a new route that steers clear of an environmentally sensitive area in Nebraska. The company is confident the department will give its final decision on the project early next year. "The multibillion-dollar Keystone XL pipeline project will reduce the United States' dependence on foreign oil and support job growth by putting thousands of Americans to work," said Russ Girling, president and CEO of TransCanada.
