Dalrymple: The Keystone XL Pipeline Project is Good for North Dakota and the Nation

BISMARCK, N.D. – Gov. Jack Dalrymple today issued the following statement in response to the Obama administration’s rejection of a permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline:

“This is a very difficult decision to understand in light of the fact that it would be very beneficial to our energy independence and to our efforts to create jobs in America,” Dalrymple said. “Our western North Dakota oil producers need access to more pipeline capacity and this project would help them market their production.”
