TransCanada says it is engaging with landowners on new Keystone XL route
From CBC - November 28, 2017

TransCanada Corp. said Tuesday it has started to engage with Nebraska landowners along the alternate route of its Keystone XL pipeline approved last week.

Speaking at an investor day in Toronto, Dean Patry, senior vice-president of liquids, said the company continues to review the regulatory approval from the Nebraska Public Service Commission, but has already started speaking with new stakeholders.

"The alternate route would involve a number of new landowners for us, and as always, we are striving to understand their perspectives on the project, and we will continue to strive to reach agreement with them on mutually beneficial terms," he said.

The route approved by the commission cleared the last major regulatory hurdle for the controversial pipeline, but created new issues for TransCanada by not approving the company's preferred route and instead giving the go-ahead on one that shifts the pipeline further east, away from sensitive ecological areas.
