Timely pipeline completion fades amid legal delays


The clock is ticking for the embattled Dakota Access Pipeline as its developer, Energy Transfer, faces a battle in federal court that could easily take another year. It also is looking at a possible injunction that the company says would cost irreparable financial harm of $1.4 billion and is holding a construction permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that is only valid for another six months.

While the company, which had scheduled to have revenue and oil flowing by the end of the year, has indicated it’s committed to getting the $3.8 billion Bakken pipeline completed, obstacles that are most visible in a water protection-protest encampment on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation signal the way forward won’t be simple.
