Dakota Access Pipeline Delivery to Begin May 14

April 21, 2017 •

Last Thursday, Energy Transfer Partners LP filed a tariff with the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission stating that interstate crude oil delivery via the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAP) will begin on May 14.


The $3.8 billion pipeline will bring crude oil through the Midwest and into the U.S. Gulf Coast with a daily capacity of 570,000 barrels of oil. In February, the Army Corps of Engineers announced that it had completed the review of the DAP oil project that had triggered months of protests from Native American tribes and environmentalists.


The approvals of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone XL Pipeline are indicative of how the new administration is taking a much needed and drastically different approach to energy issues.
