Dakota Access pipeline on track work to resume, despite ‘threats’

The company constructing the Dakota Access pipeline declared on Monday that the project remains on track to start moving oil this week despite recent “coordinated physical attacks” along the line. A court filing on Monday from this company didn’t detail the attacks, but said they “pose threats to life, physical safety, and the environment.”

The court filing cited those threats for redacting much of the rest of the 2½-page report but ended: “These coordinated attacks will not stop line-fill operations. With that in mind, the company now believes that oil may flow sometime this week.”

The company is about to regulate a  pipeline, which will move oil from North Dakota’s Bakken oil field more than 1,000 miles across four states to a shipping point in Illinois, will be safe. An appeals court on Saturday refused a request from the tribes for an emergency order to prevent oil from flowing through the pipeline.

The spokesperson of the company, however, refused to explain the type of ‘attacks’. In fact, the Morton County sheriff’s office too didn’t immediately respond considering they have witnessed the violent protests between the protestors and government.

There have been month long protests in view of the decision of building this pipeline which the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes argue that the project will contaminate the water and their right to practice religion.

The pipeline work is expected to resume on Wednesday, as per reports.
