US says no significant impact on environment from Keystone pipeline

The US State Department released a much-anticipated environmental review Friday of a controversial oil pipeline project from Canada, raising no major objections to the plan.

"The analyses of potential impacts associated with construction and normal operation of the proposed project suggest that significant impacts to most resources are not expected along the proposed project route," the huge report said about the Keystone pipeline.

The proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline is unlikely to increase the pace of Canadian oil sands development, a US State Department study said, raising pressure on President Barack Obama to approve a project environmentalists see as a major climate change problem.

Keystone XL: No US decision yet on Canada pipeline. -Kerry

WASHINGTON: US Secretary of State John Kerry Friday refused to answer Canadian calls on whether or not Washington will approve the construction of a controversial oil pipeline, saying it was still under review.
"I can promise our friends in Canada that ... all the appropriate effort has been put into trying to get this done effectively and rapidly," Kerry said, ahead of talks with his Canadian counterpart John Baird.
But he said the State Department was still reviewing the environmental impact of the long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline which is intended to carry heavy crude from Alberta's oil sands to Texas refineries.
"An analysis will be made with respect to the national interest ultimately. And we're just not at that point yet, haven't received it, they haven't finished it," Kerry told reporters, ahead of his bilateral talks with Baird.

Καναδάς: Επιστολή-έκκληση προς τον Ομπάμα για τον αγωγό Keystone. -Προσφέρει ως αντάλλαγμα μείωση εκπομπών / Canada implores Obama for Keystone XL decision

Ο πρωθυπουργός του Καναδά Στίβεν Χάρπερ υπογράφει επιστολή με παραλήπτη τον αμερικανό πρόεδρο, ζητώντας του να συμφωνήσει στην κατασκευή του αμφιλεγόμενου αγωγού Keystone XL με αντάλλαγμα στενότερη συνεργασία για τη μείωση των εκπομπών αερίων του θερμοκηπίου από τον κλάδο του πετρελαίου και του φυσικού αερίου, επιβεβαίωσαν καναδοί αξιωματούχοι, τους οποίους επικαλούνται τα μέσα ενημέρωσης της χώρας.

Οι δύο ηγέτες συναντήθηκαν για λίγη ώρα στο περιθώριο της συνόδου των G20, στην Αγία Πετρούπολη, όμως το θέμα της Συρίας κυριάρχησε στη συζήτηση. Σύμφωνα με το καναδικό δίκτυο CBC, ο Λευκός Οίκος δεν απάντησε στην επιστολή, η οποία εστάλη στο τέλος του περασμένου μήνα.
