After Joe Biden cancelled the pipeline’s permit in January, the business behind it is suing the US government for $15 billion in damages.
TC Energy reported that it has filed a Notice of Intent to bring a NAFTA claim to recoup “economic losses” caused by Biden’s decision to cancel permits that Trump had previously granted.

“TC Energy will attempt to recover more than $15 billion in damages as a result of the United States Government’s infringement of its NAFTA obligations,” the firm stated in a statement.
Joe Biden’s first priority was to eliminate tens of thousands of jobs.
Biden signed an executive order stopping construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would have delivered oil from Canada to the United States, on his first day in office.
Joe Biden was sued by 21 states earlier this year over his decision to deny the Keystone Pipeline XL project, with Texas and Montana leading the charge.
A group of 21 states led by Republican attorneys general sued Biden, claiming that canceling the cross-border authorization constitutes a “regulation of interstate and international commerce” that can only be decided by Congress.
