The Native American tribe leading the fight against the Dakota Access oil pipeline wants a judge to resolve all legal challenges to federal permits issued for the project...

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Native American tribe leading the fight against the Dakota Access oil pipeline wants a judge to resolve all legal challenges to federal permits issued for the project. The Standing Rock Sioux filed a motion for summary judgment in federal court today.

    The tribe argues the $3.8 billion project needs to be shut down until the government has conducted a thorough environmental analysis and studied alternative pipeline routes.

    The pipeline sparked massive protests in North Dakota before it began moving oil from the state in 2017. The pipeline runs through the Dakotas and Iowa to a shipping point in Illinois.

    Texas-based Energy Transfer announced in June it plans to expand the pipeline's capacity from more than 500,000 barrels per day to as much as 1.1 million barrels.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Gov. Doug Burgum has appointed a former Wyoming transportation commissioner to lead North Dakota's transportation department. Burgum says William Panos will start the job in North Dakota on October 21st. He replaces Tom Sorel, a former Minnesota transportation commissioner who resigned after less than two years on the job in North Dakota.

    Panos served as Wyoming transportation commissioner from 2008 to 2012. He has served as Lake County, Illinois' chief administrative officer only since July.

    North Dakota's transportation department has nearly 1,000 employees, and a two-year budget of $1.4 billion.

    Panos will be paid $172,400 annually.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Health Department says crude oil and wastewater overflowed from a tank in near Williston, impacting an unknown amount of pastureland. State environmental scientist Bill Suess says the tank is on a well pad owned and operated by Kraken Operating LLC. He says the company on Thursday reported the spill that occurred about 16 miles northeast of Williston. Suess says about 200 barrels of oil and produced water overflowed from the tank, and about 10 barrels migrated off the well pad.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Regulators say the volume of natural gas flared in June reached an unprecedented level due to shutdowns of several natural gas processing facilities and pipelines. Statewide, companies flared 24% of all gas produced, or double the 12% target. Department of Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms says July flaring numbers could still be high, but they could improve in August and later in the year as more pipelines and processing plants come online.
