On January 1st, the Dakota Access Pipeline agreement expires, meaning that those "who have contracts to purchase oil from Dakota Access [can] exercise their rights to cancel due to the delay."
“In connection with its long-term transportation contracts with 9 committed shippers, Dakota Access has committed to complete, test and have DAPL in service by January 1, 2017. The long-term transportation contracts give shippers a right to terminate their commitments if DAPL is not in full service per the contract deadline…and loss of shippers to the project could effectively result in project cancellation.”
