Time Range Extended For Pipeline's Completion In Louisiana
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The range of time has been extended for when an oil pipeline in Louisiana will be finished.
Energy Transfer Partners spokeswoman Alexis Daniel told The Advocate on Thursday the Bayou Bridge Pipeline's target completion date now includes anytime during this year's final three months.
Energy Transfer is the project's majority owner. It said the pipeline's construction would be complete by October. But, Daniel says the message it was telling investors since August that the pipeline would be done in 2018's fourth quarter accidentally wasn't relayed to its communication team.
She says the timeline was updated in spring when the company was still looking at weather conditions in the Atchafalaya Basin.
Cherri Foytlin says the pipeline's challengers like her group and environmentalists are the real reason the date may be later.t
