Keystone XL developer cancels two major Canadian pipeline projects

•, By Devin Henry

"We appreciate and are thankful for the support of labor, business and manufacturing organizations, industry, our customers, Irving Oil, various governments, and the approximately 200 municipalities who passed resolutions in favor of the projects," Russ Girlig, the company's president and CEO, said in a statement.

"Most of all, we thank Canadians across the country who contributed towards the development of these initiatives."

TransCanada first proposed the new pipeline projects in 2013. But the company said last month that it might be forced to abandon the Energy East proposal after energy regulators in Canada expanded their assessment of the project, including the impact of its indirect greenhouse gas emissions and other risks associated with the pipeline.
