The U.S. Supreme court refused to unblock the Keystone XL project

The U.S. Supreme court rejected the request of the US administration and the project developer TC Energy with a request to cancel a lower court decision blocking construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, should be published in the court documents.

In April the district court of Montana blocked previously issued by the engineering corps of the American army permit new pipelines cross bodies of water. It was a new blow to the project of the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, which supports the administration of President Donald trump.

In the US, the court failed to resume the simplified construction of pipelines

The Federal U.S. court of appeals rejected the request of the administration of President Donald trump to renew a program for issuing permits for the construction of new oil and gas pipelines that may result in the postponement of the implementation of over 70 projects and result in losses to $ 2 billion for the companies, said on Friday the Agency associated Press with reference to the decision of the court.

The program permitting the engineering corps of the armed forces of the United States allows the construction of pipelines across rivers and marshland with minimal approval procedures if certain criteria are met. Conservationists challenged the program in the case of the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline between the United States and Canada.
