The back­er of the Key­stone XL Pipeline doesn’t ex­pect the U.S. gov­ern­ment to make a de­cision on the pro­ject this year, Fin­an­cial Post re­ports. The long-stalled pipeline is cur­rently pending a State De­part­ment re­view, and Pres­id­ent Obama has said he will not ap­prove the pro­ject if it ex­acer­bates cli­mate change.

A Tran­sCanada fil­ing Wed­nes­day with the Se­cur­it­ies and Ex­change Com­mis­sion in­dic­ates the com­pany does not ex­pect the pres­id­en­tial per­mit to be de­cided in 2013. The pipeline would carry oil from Ca­na­dian tar sands to Gulf Coast re­finer­ies.
