    A U.S. judge on Tuesday ruled against native tribes seeking to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from moving forward on the basis that it would prevent them from practicing religious ceremonies, as legal options for opponents of the project narrow.

    MORTON COUNTY, N.D. — The Dakota Access Pipeline will likely be ready to ship oil north of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation next week, the company said in court documents.

    The company said in a status report filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., that crews are making good progress installing the pipe under Lake Oahe, a dammed section of the Missouri River in Morton County.

    Dakota Access said the company anticipates the pipeline will be ready to accept oil in that portion of the line as early as the week of March 13.

    The company is required to submit status reports while a federal judge considers arguments from tribes seeking to halt the pipeline.

    The 1,172-mile pipeline would transport oil from the Bakken in northwest North Dakota to a transportation hub in Patoka, Ill.

    Last minute appeals rejected by a federal judge. The pipeline is now 100% complete and oil can flow today.
