A huge thanks to the reader for catching this, sending it my way.
This is quite incredible. This one pipeline -- the "black snake" -- could pretty much transport all current oil produced by North Dakota.
From The Bismarck Tribune:
The operator of the Dakota Access Pipeline is planning to nearly double its capacity, to a point where it could transport nearly all of the daily oil production of the nation’s No. 2 producer. The plans include new pumping stations in three states.
The "black snake" becomes the "black anaconda."Energy Transfer Partners informed North Dakota regulators that it plans to expand the pipeline capacity from more than 500,000 barrels per day to as much as 1.1 million barrels.
