HOUSTON, March 4 (Reuters) – The controversial Keystone XL
pipeline will receive President Obama’s blessing and be built to
transport crude oil from Canada to Texas, TransCanada Corp
Chief Executive Russ Girling predicted on Tuesday.
Girling’s confidence helps project a sense of inevitability
around the $5.4 billion project, which supporters say would
create badly needed jobs, and offset a recent unfavorable
Nebraska court ruling and more than five years of political
wrangling in Washington.
