Keystone XL re-application may include detour

Published by Steve Coleman on March 07, 2012

The Keystone XL oil pipeline may be in for a physical detour to go with the political one dealt to it earlier this year.

TransCanada Corp. says it's working with the Nebraska government to work the proposed Alberta-to-Texas crude oil pipeline around the state's ecologically-sensitive Sandhills region.

TransCanada says it has found several new routes to get the oil to the Gulf of Mexico that it will unveil in a few weeks.

The plan could require an additional 32 kilometres of pipeline and a 160-176 km reroute around the Sandhills.

The White House turned down the international project earlier this year, but left the door open to a re-application with more study time.
