President-elect Joe Biden is expected to halt the permit for the $9billion Keystone XL pipeline project on his first day in office.
The pipe project was blocked by Barack Obama's administration because of environmental concerns, however in 2017, Donald Trump issued a presidential permit that allowed the controversial plan to move forward.
What is the Keystone XL pipeline?
The Keystone XL pipeline extension was proposed by the energy infrastructure company TransCanada in 2008.
The extension project was designed to transport the planet's dirtiest fossil fuel to market faster.
The expansion would coexist with the company's existing project, Keystone Pipeline System, which has been operating since 2008.
The extension would dramatically increase capacity to process the 168 billion barrels of crude oil locked up in Canada's boreal forest.
The project would transport 830,000 barrels of Alberta tar oil per day to refineries on the Gulf Coast of Texas.
