NEB approves winter clearing work for Keystone XL’s north section

Oil & Gas Journal: TransCanada Corp.’s Keystone Pipeline GP Ltd. can begin winter clearing work on the North Spread of its Keystone XL project. Canada’s National Energy Board (NEB) approved the company’s request as Keystone has satisfied the regulatory requirements for clearing of trees and shrubs along the pipeline route’s north section, starting at Hardisty, Alta.
