WASHINGTON Nov 3 (Reuters) - The White House said on Tuesday it seemed "unusual" that there be a pause in the review process for TransCanada Corp's Keystone XL pipeline.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he did not have an update in terms of the State Department's review of Keystone, which would help link Canada's heavy oil fields to U.S. refineries, but he said it seemed unusual for TransCanada to seek a pause in the years-long process.
