US President Barack Obama has pledged to speed approval for the southern leg of the stalled Keystone XL pipeline.
Speaking in the oil hub of Cushing, Oklahoma, he ordered officials to "cut through the red tape" and make fast-tracking a federal review a "priority".
Mr Obama's speech comes on day two of an energy tour spanning four US states, including Nevada and New Mexico.
Analysts say he is politically vulnerable to rising fuel prices during an election year.
