TransCanada pushes Keystone XL pipeline start to 2016

TransCanada Corp. pushed the start date for its $5.4 billion Keystone XL oil pipeline into 2016, the second delay this year as the company awaits U.S. approval for the project.

Department Review

The U.S. State Department is overseeing an environmental review to estimate the extent Keystone XL would contribute to global warming. A draft analysis released in March found the project wouldn’t have a big impact on greenhouse-gas emissions because companies can find other ways to transport the bitumen to market, such as by train.

TransCanada fell 1.2 percent to C$46.75 at the close in Toronto.
