(A-P Washington, D.C.)-A Canadian company that wants to build the disputed Keystone XL pipeline in the U.S. has submitted a new application for the project. The route has been changed to avoid environmentally sensitive land in Nebraska.

TransCanada filed a new application today for the project to carry oil from western Canada to Nebraska and then link up with other pipelines to carry oil to refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. The southern part of the route passes through Oklahoma.

President Barack Obama blocked the project earlier this year, citing uncertainty over the Nebraska route.
