President-elect Joe Biden plans to rescind a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline expansion on his first day in the White House, transition documents suggest.

The words "Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit" appeared on a transition briefing note for January 20 - Inauguration Day - circulated by Biden's transition team over the weekend, according to the Canadian report.

The words "Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit" appeared on a list of executive actions likely scheduled for the first day of Biden's presidency on Wednesday, according to the report.

TC Energy Corp., which operates the pipeline, said it would achieve net zero emissions by 2023 when it enters service.

Mr Biden's transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the report.

A Canadian source close to the matter told Madan that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau brought up the subject in a congratulatory phone call with Biden following his victory in the USA election. Hillman's office was not immediately available for comment.

The XL portion of the pipeline calls for the construction of a segment from Alberta to the Midwestern US state of Nebraska, creating a more direct route to the Gulf refineries.

Since then the project has seen opposition by environmentalists seeking to check Canada's oil industry and Native Americans whose land faced encroachment.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney took to Facebook to post a response.

However, a Wall Street Journal report late Sunday said the company plans to spend $1.7 billion United States on a solar, wind and battery-powered operating system for the pipeline, hire a union-only workforce and establish zero-emissions operations by 2030, all with an eye towards securing Biden's approval.

A company spokesman cited by the Journal said Keystone would announce the measures this week.

Construction is well under way in Canada, with the worldwide border crossing complete. In the United States, TC has started construction on pump stations in each of the states the line will pass through, but legal setbacks cost it much of the 2020 construction season.

Biden was vice-president in 2015 when President Barack Obama initially rejected Keystone XL for fear it would worsen climate change.

U.S. President Donald Trump approved the 1,947-kilometre pipeline extension in 2017 after years of it struggling to get off the ground.
