Environmental Groups Sue Over TransCanada Pipeline

By Kevin Fayle on October 05, 2011 11:09 AM

A coalition of environmental organizations has filed a lawsuit against the federal government seeking to stop work on TransCanada's Keystone oil pipeline. The groups allege that TransCanada received authorization to begin work on the pipeline, which will transport crude from oil sands in Alberta to refineries in Texas, from the Department of Fish and Wildlife before the State Department had issued a final approval for the project. The groups allege that this violated a federal law preventing the commencement of project work before issuance of a final approval.
