HOUSTON (ICIS)--TransCanada is working to obtain easements from landowners in Nebraska for its re-routed 830,000 bbl/day Keystone XL oil pipeline project, the Canadian energy infrastructure major said on Wednesday.

The Nebraska government in January approved a revised route for Keystone XL, which avoids sensitive water protection areas in the state. However, the US government has yet to make a final decision on the project, which would enable supplies of Canadian oil to reach refineries on the US Gulf Coast.

"We will keep working with affected landowners in an open and transparent manner, and we look forward to continuing to earn the trust of the people whose land our pipeline will cross," said Corey Goulet, TransCanada's vice president for the Keystone project.

Goulet added that TransCanada is releasing easements in Nebraska it had obtained for the original pipeline route through the state.
