DAPL Pipeline Expansion Ramping Up

(Emmons County, ND) -- The expansion of the Dakota Access Pipeline is ramping up.  

Pipeline operator Energy Transfer said this week that part of the expansion is now operational and can transport 750-thousand barrels of oil per day. That's an increase of 180-thousand barrels per day.  

The company is adding pump stations, including one in Emmons County west of Linton.  

Once the expansion is fully operational, it will be able to transport over a million barrels of oil per day.
