This follows a ruling Thursday from the Federal Court of Appeal that overturned the Trudeau government's approval of the contentious expansion.
"We're going to review today's decision to ensure that we're meeting high standards when it comes to both protecting the environment and meeting our obligations to consult with Indigenous peoples", Morneau said during a news conference.
He says the government is reviewing the Federal Appeal Court ruling carefully, but the judgment is long and he doesn't have a response yet.
The brief meeting in Calgary was chaired by the CEO of both Kinder Morgan Canada Inc. and its US parent, Steven Kean.
"The Indigenous applicants were entitled to a dialogue that demonstrated that Canada not only heard but also gave serious consideration to the specific and real concerns the Indigenous applicants put to Canada, gave serious consideration to proposed accommodation measures and explained how the concerns of the Indigenous applicants impacted Canada's decision to approve the project", the ruling stated.
"We have to put the days of division behind us", she said while celebrating a milestone at Enoch Cree Nation, home to a stockpile site for the pipeline.
The province's lawyer said Ottawa's decision to approve the pipeline's expansion between Edmonton and Metro Vancouver was based on a broad base of evidence that considered environmental, economic and Indigenous interests.
"I will be very supportive of all future actions to move this project forward".
Finance Minister Bill Morneau, speaking on BNN Bloomberg television after the ruling, said the government remains committed to getting the pipeline built, arguing it's needed to diversify exports and ease the price discount that comes from being so reliant on the US market.
It also means a financial hit to the city, with a community benefits agreement in the form of a one-time payment of $750,000 effectively on hold while the project remains in limbo.

The statement disputed the video evidence of a far-right mob, and insisted that "eye witnesses described a spirit of optimism and togetherness".
"The court decision was not a condition of the transaction between KML [Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd.] and the federal government".
"Right from the beginning, we always said water is life". Additionally, the federal government was seen to have not adequately consulted First Nations, as required by law.
"I don't regret anything about this", said Chief Lee Spahan in a phone interview.
Chief Bob Chamberlin, vice-president of the Union of British Columbia Indian Chiefs (UBCIC), said the ruling is "a major win with impacts that will be felt across the country".
He says Ottawa needs to make sure the project proceeds, but must also ensure it goes ahead in the right way. That led to a trade war between B.C. and Alberta, which has championed the Kinder Morgan pipeline project.
"This is a decisive victory for all the parties involved in this case fighting to stop Kinder Morgan, including the government of British Columbia", May said on CTV News Channel.
"We are reviewing the decision with the government of Canada and are taking the appropriate time to assess next steps", said Trans Mountain. Critically endangered southern resident killer whales face a seven-fold increase in oil tanker traffic through their critical habitat if the project is built.
