$3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline begins service

$3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline begins service”

The second pipeline is the 700 mile ETCO or Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline that will transport oil from the Patoka Tank Farm to Nederland, Texas where the crude oil can be refined or further transported to additional refining markets.

On Thursday, a tribal leader said he'll keep fighting to stop the pipeline, even though it has already gone into use.

"If you drive up the cost overall because of more time required for legal maneuvers or permitting or public relations campaigns to overcome the resistance, then that will make the pipelines less competitive compared to some other options", Webber said.

The pipeline extends from North Dakota, through South Dakota and Iowa, and into IL. It is capable of carrying 570,000 barrels of oil per day and is now transporting 520,000 per day. Clashes with police at the protests turned violent at times, with one woman almost losing her arm after an explosion in November.

Despite the start of service, American Indian tribes and their allies are still working in court to shut the project down, saying the federal government didn't conduct the proper environmental reviews before permitting construction under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

Although they won't say when full capacity will be reached next year, backers of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) made clear this week that the vision of creating a pipeline route for Bakken sweet crude production in North Dakota to the Gulf Coast is now a reality. But President Trump approved the easement weeks after taking office, spurring Energy Transfer to quickly resume construction.

The Sioux nation first protested the pipeline during the Obama administration, arguing it ran close to the Standing Rock Sioux reservation and over land they consider historically sacred.

"Just because the oil is flowing now doesn't mean that it can't be stopped", Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II said in a statement.
