Nebraska approves new route of Keystone oil pipeline
WASHINGTON Jan 22 (Reuters) - Nebraska's governor said on Tuesday he approved a revised route for Keystone XL pipeline that would connect Canadian oil sands to refineries in Texas, adding pressure on the Obama administration to give the go-ahead on the controversial project.
TransCanada Corp, the company hoping to build the project to transport 830,000 barrels per day of crude, had submitted a new route after environmentalists had complained that the initial plan would cross ecologically sensitive regions in Nebraska.
