The second pipeline is the 700 mile ETCO or Energy Transfer Crude Oil Pipeline that will transport oil from the Patoka Tank Farm to Nederland, Texas where the crude oil can be refined or further transported to additional refining markets. It cost $3.8 billion to build.
Built at $3.8bn, the 1,172 mile and 30-inch Dakota Access pipeline runs through the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa and IL. More than half a year of protests in North Dakota resulted in 761 arrests before President Donald Trump's administration and the courts allowed the pipeline to be completed earlier this year. We look back on the the fight against the pipeline during the coldest months of North Dakota winter.
The successful completion of construction and testing opens up a new route for up to 570,000 barrels of oil daily to be carried from major drilling areas in the Bakken oil formation to a major pipeline hub, where it can be carried to refiners or exporters on the Gulf Coast. The four Sioux tribes trying to shut down the pipeline claim the incident supports their argument that the pipeline should be subject to government-ordered environmental review because it could jeopardize drinking water supplies.

The Standing Rock Sioux, who tap the Missouri River for tribal water, argued that the pipeline traversed sacred burial grounds and threatened the tribe's main water source.
"We will continue to battle the operation of this pipeline in court and remind everyone that just because the oil is flowing now doesn't mean that it can't be stopped", Archambault said Thursday.
In March, a federal judge in Washington, D.C., denied a request by the Sioux nation to order an emergency injunction preventing the pipeline from becoming operational. "No waterways were affected".
The pipeline project has already earned approval from the National Energy Board, the federal government, and the province of B.C. Corporate and union donations would be banned, and limits placed on individual contributions to political parties.
