Dakota Access says it will stand down if corps sets completion date


As the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closes in on an announcement regarding the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline crossing, and after the corps asked the company twice to stand down for 30 days to de-escalate surrounding tensions, Dakota Access LLC said Friday it will stop work if the corps guarantees a completion date.

“If we can agree on a date certain upon which we can complete construction, Dakota Access is prepared to suspend construction activities near Lake Oahe for a reasonable time period as part of an effort to defuse tension and to facilitate the peaceful removal of protesters from the protest site,” the company said in a statement issued through spokeswoman Vicki Granado.
