Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL - USA) / Standing Rock

 

 

“The pipeline was originally meant to run near the city of Bismarck, which has an overwhelmingly white population, before objections resulted in the relocation to Native American land.”

Oliver Milman, The Guardian (article)

 

 

UPDATE:  The 470,000 barrel per day Dakota Access pipeline became operational in June 2017.

 

 

The Dakota Access Pipeline is an Energy Transfer Partners LP project is expected to cost $3.8 billion and crosses 4 states.  Construction is underway on the 1,172-mile (1,886 km) pipeline, proposed to funnel 470,000 bbls/day fracked crude oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to a refinery near Chicago, Illinois

 

Crossing federal land near Lake Oahe.  Will run under the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers.

 

Significant opposition arose when construction drew near the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, where people claimed threat to their water supply and cultural heritage.

 

Rallies have taken place across the United States and the world including New York City; Los Angeles; Toronto, Canada and London, England.

 

 

 

 

DAPL 001

 

 

Standing Rock (2016)

 

The campaign and camps at Standing Rock whose goal was to prevent the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline from crossing Standing Rock Sioux Reservation (destroying heritage sites and putting water at risk) have become a flagship in the fight against the dominance of the oil and gas industry.

 

The Standing Rock campaign showed the world how the oil and gas industry is supported by government and law enforcement, as well as the tactics, technology, and ethics those well-funded groups will employ to stay their course.

 

The world watched and learned at Standing Rock.
