Open Season For Dakota Access Expansion


March 7, 2018


Energy Transfer Partners is asking for commitments from the industry as it decides whether to ship additional crude through its Dakota Access and Energy Transfer Crude Oil pipelines that move oil from the Bakken play in North Dakota to the Gulf Coast.

The line has a 520,000-barrel-per-day capacity that may be expanded to 570,000; ETP’s announcement about the possible expansion didn’t list a capacity figure.

The Dakota Access line runs through Illinois and Iowa; the Energy Transfer line runs from Illinois to the Texas coast.
