"The Trump administration tried to force this dirty pipeline project on the American people, but they can't ignore the threats it would pose to our clean water, our climate, and our communities".
Analysts say the decision could cause a delay of up to one year for Keystone XL, which was first proposed 10 years ago.
TransCanada's Keystone XL oil pipeline suffers another setback as a federal judge in Montana has issued an order blocking its construction, which was previously approved by the US State Department, media reported.
"An agency cannot simply disregard contrary or inconvenient factual determinations that it made in the past, any more than it can ignore inconvenient facts when it writes on a blank slate", Morris wrote.
Work can not proceed until the State Department completes a supplement to the environmental impact statement that complies with the National Environmental Policy Act and the Administrative Procedure Act, Morris ruled. It has become the focal point of a decade-long dispute that pits Democrats, environmental groups and Native American tribes who warn of pollution and increased greenhouse gas emissions against business groups and Republicans who cheer the project's jobs and potential energy production.

Trump, a Republican, said the project would lower consumer fuel prices, create jobs and reduce USA dependence on foreign oil. The order came as a Canadian energy company prepared to assemble initial stages of the 1,200-mile long, cross-border project.
Morris said the government must provide "new and relevant information regarding the risk of spills". The State Department "simply discarded prior factual findings related to climate change to support its course reversal". In the USA, the pipeline would stretch 875 miles through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, with the rest continuing into Canada.
He also ruled the analysis failed to fully review the effects of the current oil price on the pipeline's viability and did not fully model potential oil spills and offer mitigations measures. "The courts showed the Trump administration and their corporate polluter friends that they can not bully rural landowners, farmers, environmentalists, and Native communities". Construction of the U.S. leg had been scheduled to begin next year.
"We keep killing it, and it keeps coming back from the dead", Dallas Goldtooth from the Keep It In The Ground campaign for the Indigenous Environmental Network said, as cited by CBC News.
