NEW YORK: Blocked by US President Joe Biden, Canada’s TC Energy said Wednesday it had officially terminated the Keystone XL Pipeline project, throwing in the towel on a controversial initiative opposed by environmental activists.
TC Energy will coordinate with regulators, indigenous groups and other stakeholders “to meet its environmental and regulatory commitments and ensure a safe termination of and exit from the Project,” the company said in a press release, confirming that it had notified the government of the province of Alberta.
