Dakota Access Pipeline: Corporate Players



Phillips 66 joins Energy Transfer to build Bakken crude oil pipelines

(ETE), Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (ETP) (ETE and ETP collectively, “Energy Transfer”) and Phillips 66 (PSX) announced that they have formed two joint ventures to develop the previously announced Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline (ETCOP) projects. Energy Transfer holds a 75 percent interest in each joint venture and will operate both pipeline systems. Phillips 66 owns the remaining 25 percent interests and will fund its proportionate share of the construction costs. The DAPL and ETCOP projects are expected to begin commercial operations in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Dakota Access Pipeline Tribal Liaison Formerly Worked For Agency Issuing Permit To Cross Tribal Land

Slated to carry oil obtained via hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) from North Dakota's Bakken Shale basin to Patoka, Illinois, the plaintiffs say not only was the Army Corps' permitting of the Energy Transfer Partners and Enbridge Corporation jointly owned pipeline a violation of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Clean Water Act, but also a violation of the National Historic Preservation Act's (NHPA) Section 106. A review of court documents for the case currently unfolding in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. has revealed that the tribal liaison for Energy Transfer Partners tasked with abiding by Section 106 passed through the revolving door and formerly worked for the Army Corps.

The Real Victim in the Dakota Access Pipeline Controversy Is the Company behind the Project. Transparency on Oil, Gas, Coal Revenues Moving Forward.

Transparency on Oil, Gas, Coal Revenues Moving Forward

On the table for the May 1 and 2 meetings was which natural resources, types of lands, and revenues will be subject to heightened accountability standards under the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), a voluntary, global effort the United States joined this year.

Hardrock minerals (such as uranium and gold), saleable minerals (such as gravel and sand), renewable energies (such as solar and wind), and forestry are still up for discussion.

Interior’s Office of Natural Resources Revenue (ONRR) already collects much of the data the committee decided to include in USEITI scope last week.

Pipeline route plan first called for crossing north of Bismarck

Now a growing number of protesters are objecting to the oil pipeline’s Missouri River crossing a half-mile north of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, which they argue could threaten the water supply for the tribe and other communities downstream. Early in the planning process, Dakota Access considered but eliminated an alternative that would have crossed the Missouri River about 10 miles north of Bismarck instead of the route currently under construction. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers evaluated the Bismarck route and concluded it was not a viable option for many reasons. One reason mentioned in the agency’s environmental assessment is the proximity to wellhead source water protection areas that are avoided to protect municipal water supply wells.
