Keystone XL Pipeline Project Compliance Follow-up Review: The Department of Stateńˇ╗s Choice of Environmental Resources Management, Inc., to Assist in Preparing the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement
Norman P. Brown (pf)
The Keystone XL project is a proposed 875-mile pipeline from Alberta, Canada, through Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska, where it would link with pipelines running to the U.S. Gulf Coast. It is to be built and operated by TransCanada Keystone Pipeline LP (TransCanada), an entity controlled by TransCanada Corp., a Canada-based energy company. On Sept. 19, 2008, TransCanada submitted a Presidential permit application to the Dept. of State (State) because Keystone XL crosses the U.S.- Canadian border into Montana. Following President Obamańˇ╗s Jan. 2012 denial, TransCanada filed a new Keystone XL permit application in May 2012. A supplemental EIS (SEIS) was required because the route through Nebraska proposed by TransCanada had changed, so State needed to select an EIS contractor to help prepare the SEIS. In May 2012, State selected Environmental Resources Management, Inc. (ERM). In March 2013, State issued a draft SEIS for Keystone XL. Thereafter, State received a number of complaints asserting that ERM and its staff lacked the requisite independence to serve as the SEIS contractor and that ERMńˇ╗s answers in the conflict of interest questionnaire submitted as part of the SEIS contractor selection process were not accurate. In response, State initiated this follow-up review to determine how well the process used to select ERM followed prescribed guidance and to determine how effective the revised process was in assessing and addressing organizational conflicts of interest for third-party contractors. This is a print on demand report.
