OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Canadian company that wants to build another oil pipeline to carry crude oil to Gulf Coast refineries remains optimistic about the project after President Barack Obama won re-election.
The NRC has confirmed a finding that an electrical fire last June at the Fort Calhoun Station was a serious safety risk.
Tuesday’s report follows a preliminary finding issued last month by the Commission. The June 7, 2011 fire caused an alert to be issued at the nuclear plant. It was closed at the time due to Missouri River flooding.
NRC Region 4 spokeswoman Lara Uselding says the finding is a so-called “red” threat, meaning it’s a high safety significant issue.
