Keystone was
never granted
permit bc
POTUS said it
wasn’t in the
national interest
of USA. Dakota
Access has
permits, is nearly
70 percent
constructed,
allows Americans
more access to
American energy
and is supporting
8000+
American jobs.

September 15 (2 Fridays ago)

Nothing’s been denied.

– this is only
with regards to
prospective projects –
see DOJ/DOI release

~470,000

1,172
light sweet crude

Major
refining
markets in
Illinois and the
Gulf Coast

Numerous archeological surveys have
confirmed no impact to culturally sensitive
sites. Also, the pipeline is collocated along
a pre-existing energy corridor that has
been used for decades for electrical and
nat gas transmission.

Project has been fully approved.

Pipelines are the safest way to transport
energy materials, by far. Pipelines already
carry hundreds of thousands of barrels of
crude under the Missouri River every day.

Under Army
Corps and state
regulations,
comprehensive
environmental
reviews have
occurred. Feds
and four state
governments have
already approved
project.
Army Corps
had 389 meetings
w/ 55 different
Native American
Tribes, including
Standing
Rock Sioux.
Tribe’s water intake
is moving to Mobridge, SD.,
70 miles south of crossing.

1. This was a “one-sided trial”. No perspective allowed. 2. The Army Corps of Engineers had
9 meetings w/ SRST, & the SRST rejected other requested or attempted meetings with
gov’t & construction company. 3. Judge Boasberg wrote, the ”tribe largely refused to engage
in consultations.”
This has already
occurred:
In addition
to the tribal
outreach there
were hundreds
of additional
meetings with
elected officials,
property owners,
concerned
citizens,
and others.

Archaeologists, who have actually walked the route, found no evidence
of sacred burial sites or cultural artifacts at DAPL worksites or on the route.

Permit also
applies to other
infrastructure
projects like
highways,
and railways

This isn’t
correct
- Judge
Boasberg
addressed
this in his
58-page
decision.

all false – see prior

Not
fast-tracked,
review
spanned over
2 years.

Pipelines
are safe.
3X safer than
rail, according
to PHMSA data.
Dakota Access
would remove an
estimated 700
oil railcars from
North Dakota
every day

Environmental
studies followed
federal
and state
regulations.
Judge Boasberg
talks abt
this too.
See above

Since this has all happened, project
should be allowed to be completed.

Boasberg also said,”appears Corp
exceeded its NHPA obligation.”

Process started over 2 yrs
ago, has included several
hundred consultations, & has
been transparent.
