At a combined capacity of 520,000 barrels per day, the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and its less notorious brother, the Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline (ETCO) transfer crude from the Bakken formation in North Dakota to the US refining hubs of the Gulf Coast and a storage/terminal hub in IL.
Combined with the Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline, the Dakota Access Pipeline is expected to transport 520,000 barrels per day. And now, the Dakota Access pipeline is in full service, moving hundreds of thousands of barrels of oil per day.

Opponents said the pipeline's route under Lake Oahe near the reservation would threaten the tribe's drinking water, and the oil it carries would be destructive to the climate. The 1,872-mile crude oil transport system became a symbol of the fight over American climate policy when members of the Sioux tribe opposed the construction and set up camp at Standing Rock.
Although it is now operational, the court battle continues, with protesters arguing the government did not follow its own ruling when President Donald Trump took office and nixed the lengthy environmental review, clearing the way for final construction.
"If you drive up the cost overall because of more time required for legal maneuvers or permitting or public relations campaigns to overcome the resistance, then that will make the pipelines less competitive compared to some other options", Webber said.
