Jan. 24 — The Dakota Access Pipeline is a 1,134-mile-long pipeline that would ship 450,000 barrels of oil per day from the Bakken fields in North Dakota to a shipping terminal in Illinois. It’s about 85 percent complete, save for a portion near the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota. For months, the Standing Rock Sioux and other activists have been protesting construction there, arguing that the pipeline could endanger both nearby water supplies and sacred sites.
