The Texas company developing the much-protested Dakota Access pipeline says it’s not aware of any plans for a new route in North Dakota. 
 
Energy Transfer Partners also says it’s confident it will get the necessary permission to finish the pipeline where the company first intended.
 
The company issued a brief statement Wednesday after President Barack Obama said the Army Corps of Engineers is examining whether the pipeline can be rerouted due to concerns from American Indians. The pipeline would carry oil from western North Dakota some 1,200 miles through South Dakota and Iowa to a shipping point in Illinois.
 
The Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its supporters say the pipeline is a threat to drinking water and that construction could disturb sacred sites. The pipeline company has said the pipeline would have guards against leaks and would be safer than carrying oil by train and truck.
