Dakota Pipeline Operators to Push Through with Final Drilling


Energy Transfer Partners LP, right smack on election day in the United States, on Tuesday, said it was not slowing down construction of the Dakota Access pipeline that is contested by environmentalists and Native American groups.

The owners of the Dakota Access Pipeline said it was moving equipment to prepare for tunneling under Lake Oahe, the water source that has been a focus of protests, even as federal regulators have not given a go-ahead signal that the line will be able to proceed.

Army Corps spokesman Thomas O’Hara told Bloomberg News on Monday that the company had agreed to slow down construction, a statement Energy Transfer refuted.
