On 8 February, Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (ETP) announced that Dakota Access, LLC (Dakota Access) received an easement from the US Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) to construct a pipeline across land owned by the Army Corps on both sides of Lake Oahe.
The release of the Army Corps’ easement follows a directive from President Donald Trump to the Department of the Army and the Army Corps to take all necessary and appropriate steps that would permit construction and operation of the Dakota Access (DAPL) pipeline. His directive included easements to cross federal lands.
As a result of this action, DAPL has received all of the federal authorisations that are necessary to proceed with completing the construction of the pipeline.
DAPL consists of approximately 1172 miles of 30 in. dia. crude oil pipeline from North Dakota to Patoka (Illinois).
