Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. —  Marty Durbin, President of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement regarding the termination of the Keystone XL pipeline project:

“TC Energy’s decision to terminate the Keystone XL pipeline project is understandable, but necessary only because of the policy errors of the administration. In the final analysis, the American people will lose the most by not having access to affordable and reliable energy that would have been safely and efficiently transported by the pipeline. We also must not forget the opportunity cost for thousands of American workers, some of which already have lost their jobs on this project, and the communities along the pipeline route that would have received millions in tax revenue to support their schools and infrastructure. This episode is also a black mark for our relationship with our close ally to the north, Canada, and will have repercussions for our ability to attract private investment for years to come.”
