Yesterday, June 1st, Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), the parent company of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) announced that DAPL is officially fully operational. From there the 788-mile ETCO converted natural gas pipeline carries the crude oil to the Gulf Coast at Nederland, TX.
Built at $3.8bn, the 1,172 mile and 30-inch Dakota Access pipeline runs through the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and IL. The company says the pipelines will transport the crude oil to major refining markets in a more direct, cost effective, safer and more environmentally responsible manner than other modes of transportation, including rail or truck.
Meanwhile, four Native American tribes in the Dakotas are still fighting in court, hoping to persuade a judge to shut down the line. The so-called DAPL, which was completed in early May, faced eco-terrorist actions earlier this year. The Dakota Access pipeline and a feeder line leaked more than 100 gallons of oil in western North Dakota in separate incidents in March, and the Dakota Access line leaked 84 gallons of oil in northern South Dakota in April.
The developer of the Dakota Access oil pipeline, which is expected to begin shipping oil on Thursday, will face scrutiny later this summer on whether it violated North Dakota rules during construction. Tribes and environmental groups fear it might cause pollution.
