Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Proposed Keystone XL Project; Public Meetings
Document Number: 2011-21939
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-08-26
Agency: Department of State
Following the release of the final Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, Executive Order 13337 calls on the Secretary of State, or her designee, to determine if issuance of a Presidential Permit to the applicant would serve the national interest. This decision on the application will take into account a wide range of factors, including environmental, economic, energy security, foreign policy, and pipeline safety concerns. No decision will be made until the completion of this thorough review process. The Department expects to make a decision on whether to grant or deny the Permit before the end of the year. If built, the Keystone XL pipeline would carry crude oil from Canada and from U.S. oil fields in North Dakota and Montana to refineries primarily on the Gulf Coast of the United States. As part of the review and analysis of the national interest, the U.S. Department of State will hold a series of public meetings, and provide other opportunities for the public to comment on the project. Along with other factors listed above, these comments will be considered in the final decision. Meetings will be held at the following dates, locations and times (all meeting times are local time):
