BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Energy Transfer executives say more oil is being shipped through the Dakota Access Pipeline as its expansion becomes operational. The line can now transport 750,000 barrels of oil daily, which is 180,000 more than before. Energy Transfer is adding pump stations to boost the pipeline’s horsepower. Once the full expansion is fully operational, as much as 1.1 million barrels of oil will flow through the pipeline each day. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is evaluating the expansion in its ongoing environmental study of the line. Opponents of the line are upset that the expansion began before the study was finished.
