President Trump has given the green-light two controversial pipelines via executive actions on Tuesday, reviving the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.

The Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines have been heavily protested by environmentalists and those impacted by the pipelines.

The Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota and those supporting them protested the Dakota Access Pipeline over the winter, citing environmental and clean water concerns, with worries a pipeline leak would contaminate the nearby Missouri River.

The company behind the Keystone XL project, TransCanada, has not yet reapplied for a pipeline permit, after having withdrawn its request under the Obama administration.

Officials with TransCanada, the company behind the pipeline, said they hoped Trump would revive the pipeline and was “evaluating ways to convince the new administration on the benefits, the jobs and the tax revenues this project brings to the table.

“For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry,” the plan stated. “President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule.”

The Trump administration is also poised to embrace “the shale oil and gas revolution.”

Trump on Monday signed measures withdrawing the U.S. from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, and instituting a hiring freeze for most of the federal government.
