A U.S. judge has denied a request for pre-construction work to go ahead on the Keystone XL pipeline. The Keystone XL pipeline would bring oil from Hardisty, Alta., to Steele City, Neb. In December, a Montana Federal Court judge gave the company permission to continue some pre-construction work such as engineering, awarding contracts and taking meetings. The pre-construction work is essential, the company has said, to be ready for the 2019 spring construction season and meeting its targeted 2021 completion date. TransCanada is still waiting for approval to continue field work in the United States.
