Industry representatives say the decision could delay more than 70 pipeline projects.

The case originated with a challenge by environmentalists to the Keystone XL crude oil pipeline from Canada to Nebraska. The Army Corps of Engineers permit was canceled by a lower court after environmentalists said it left companies largely unaccountable for damage done to streams and wetlands during pipeline construction.
