Louisiana Court to Hear Challenge to Bayou Bridge Oil Pipeline

HeadlineNov 28, 2018

In Louisiana, a judge heard arguments Tuesday in an eminent domain case that could help determine the fate of the 163-mile Bayou Bridge pipeline being built by Energy Transfer Partners—the same company behind the controversial Dakota Access pipeline. Property owners whose land was seized for pipeline construction are suing Energy Transfer Partners, claiming it illegally stole and damaged private land for construction of the Bayou Bridge pipeline, which which would carry nearly a half-million barrels of oil per day across Louisiana’s wetlands. A judge is expected to issue a ruling today after more testimony.
