“There are many problems with the information ETP (Energy Transfer Partner) submitted to the Corps of Engineers on DAPL. ETP estimates that 12,500 barrels of oil would be the worst case scenario, but that is based on a 9 minute shut down time.

Now, the fight continues but it is in federal court.” —Chairman Mike Faith of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (Photo courtesy of Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Facebook 2018)
