  • What completed Dakota Access pipeline means for key players

The developer of the Dakota Access Pipeline says oil is now in the pipeline - and will soon be in service after months of warring with protesters at the sight.

The spill occurred about 150 miles from where the Native American Standing Rock Sioux tribe and environmentalists, calling themselves water protectors, were protesting Energy Transfer Partners' controversial US$3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline.

"Divestment and shareholder advocacy have been key to our fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline", Standing Rock Sioux chairman Dave Archambault said Monday in a statement.

The section of proposed pipeline under Lake Oahe drew an estimated 10,000 people to camps nearby last November. He says the tribes believe they ultimately will convince a federal judge to shut down the pipeline. The pipeline should be fully operational in about three weeks, moving oil from North Dakota's Bakken oil fields to a distribution point in IL. However, the legal battle over the disputed land is far from over. In Iowa, the state chapter of the Sierra Club and a group of landowners are appealing a lawsuit challenging the pipeline to the Iowa Supreme Court.

There were months of protests against the pipeline, mainly in North Dakota, where opponents set up a camp on Corps land between the Standing Rock Reservation and the pipeline route.


January 18, 2017 — The Army Corps launches a full environmental study of the pipeline's disputed Lake Oahe crossing that could take up to two years to complete. "But the Army Corps of Engineers, which manages the Missouri River for the government, rescinded the study and gave the company permission to complete the pipeline at the urging of President Donald Trump shortly after he took office.". Spokesman Craig Stevens says the pipeline is "a public triumph" for the Trump administration and its commitment to energy and economic development.

North Dakota is the second-biggest oil producer in the US, after Texas.

The company that built the Dakota Access pipeline has filled the pipe with oil and is making the final preparations to start moving the oil.

ETP has said in court documents that it has long-term transportation contracts with nine companies to ship oil through the pipeline.
