TransCanada Corp. has written to the U.S. State Department to dispute the Environmental Protection Agency's latest criticism of the stalled Keystone XL pipeline project.

The Republican-controlled U.S. Congress is set to pass a bill approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline on Wednesday.

It will then land on the desk of U.S. President Barack Obama, who has vowed to veto it over climate change concerns.

The company takes issue with the EPA report, which said the recent drop in oil prices will increase Keystone's contribution to greenhouse gases and climate change.
