TransCanada’s Keystone Wins Right to Take Pipeline Land

TransCanada Corp. won court permission to build part of its Keystone XL pipeline across several contested tracts of southeast Texas farmland to carry Canadian tar-sands crude to Gulf Coast refineries.

State judge Tom Rugg Sr. granted the pipeline company’s requests to take possession of the tracts under state eminent-domain laws after a hearing today in Beaumont, Texas.
