The company behind the proposed Keystone XL pipeline is no longer pursuing another pipeline to carry oil from northwestern North Dakota into Canada.
TransCanada Corp. on Thursday notified the U.S. State Department that it will withdraw its application for the Upland Pipeline. The project was linked to a proposed pipeline project in Canada that TransCanada is no longer pursuing.
The company last spring had asked the U.S. State Department to pause its review of the Upland Pipeline. The project also would have needed approval from North Dakota regulators.
The pipeline was to originate about 15 miles southwest of Williston and transport up to 300,000 barrels of crude per day north of the border.
