PUC Moving Quickly On Proposed Pipeline

Plans are progressing for a pipeline designed to carry crude oil from the Bakken oil fields to Illinois. Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners is building the $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline. Spokesperson Vicki Granado says the 1,100-mile route includes North and South Dakota, Iowa and Illinois.

She says they’re just finishing up land owner meetings in South Dakota to determine the route and the next step will be permitting.
