Notice of a Decision To Deny a Presidential Permit to TransCanada Keystone Pipeline LP for the Proposed Keystone XL Pipeline.

SUMMARY:

On November 6, 2015, the Department of State announced the Secretary of State's determination under Executive Order 13337 that issuing a Presidential Permit to TransCanada Keystone Pipeline LP (“TransCanada”) for the proposed Keystone XL pipeline's border facilities would not serve the national interest, and denied the Permit application. This decision prohibits TransCanada from constructing, connecting, operating, and maintaining pipeline facilities at the border of the United States and Canada in Phillips County, Montana, for the export of crude oil from Canada to the United States.
