DALLAS — The companies building the Dakota Access Pipeline said they remain committed to completing the project and expect to do so without rerouting the pipeline despite a decision from the federal government that denies the Lake Oahe easement. "This is nothing new from this Administration, since over the last four months the Administration has demonstrated by its action and inaction that it intended to delay a decision in this matter until President Obama is out of office," Energy Transfer Partners and Sunoco Logistics Partners said in a statement late Sunday, Dec. 4.
WASHINGTON — A long-awaited decision issued Sunday, Dec. 4, denies an easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline, but it does not mean an end for the controversial Bakken oil pipeline. The Department of the Army said it would not approve an easement to allow the 1,172-mile pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe north of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, where protests have escalated in recent months.
BISMARCK — Gov. Jack Dalrymple wants to meet with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council in the coming days to discuss the Dakota Access Pipeline protest and begin rebuilding state and tribal relations. "In my opinion, we need to begin now to talk about how we are going to eventually arrive at a peaceful resolution of the situation and restore the relationship between North Dakota and the Standing Rock people," Dalrymple said during a news conference Wednesday, Nov. 30.
BISMARCK — Vehicles delivering supplies to the Dakota Access Protest camp could be subject to a $1,000 fine per the governor's emergency evacuation order, a state official said Tuesday. Cecily Fong, spokeswoman for the Department of Emergency Services, said law enforcement can stop vehicles in the area of the protest camp in southern Morton County and issue a $1,000 fine if the motorists are delivering supplies to the area under the evacuation order.
BISMARCK - Gov. Jack Dalrymple has ordered an emergency evacuation of the Dakota Access Pipeline protest camps on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land, citing safety concerns due to harsh winter weather. Dalrymple's order signed Monday, Nov. 28, states that people camping in areas near the Cannonball River are ordered to leave immediately and take their possessions with them. The order comes three days after the Corps told the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe it would close the Corps-managed land north of the Cannonball River on Dec. 5.
WASHINGTON — Developers of the Dakota Access Pipeline asked a judge Tuesday, Nov. 15, to end "political interference" by the Obama administration and prevent further construction delays as opponents rallied around the country in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's fight against the four-state pipeline. Dakota Access argued in court papers filed in U.S. District Court that the Army Corps of Engineers has already authorized construction under Lake Oahe, a dammed section of the Missouri River.
