TransCanada on Monday cheered an environmental report by Nebraska state regulators on the proposed reroute of its Keystone XL oil pipeline, saying it would have "minimal environmental impacts" on the state.

The Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality last week sent its final analysis of the pipeline route to Governor Dave Heineman.

"This report is the culmination of a rigorous and comprehensive review by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality, which included extensive public input gathered during a seven month public comment period," said Russell Girling, TransCanada's president and CEO, in a statement. "TransCanada has made it a priority to work with Nebraskans to identify the most appropriate route for this pipeline project and we look forward to hearing from Governor Heineman regarding this report."
