TransCanada Corp. (NYSE: TRP) is a Canadian pipeline company transporting oil and natural gas across North America that is also expanding into Central and South America.

TransCanada's pipelines transport 20% of Canada's oil exports to the United States, and it's getting a boost with the new KeystoneXL pipeline.

The resuscitation of Keystone XL is a big win for TransCanada, which initially applied for a permit from the U.S. Department of State a decade ago.
