Kelcy Warren, Executive Chairman for Energy Transfer LP, the parent company of Dakota Access Pipeline, will be featured at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference May 11-13 in Bismarck along with other top executives.

He will participate in a fireside chat with ND Petroleum Council President Ron Ness to discuss several issues.

The company is embroiled in litigation playing out in Washington, DC federal courts after a Federal Judge ruled that Energy Transfer must empty the pipeline of all of its crude oil while a new environmental impact study is underway.

The crude oil pipeline moves up to 570,000 BOPD from Stanley, ND running 1,172 miles south to Patoka, IL.

Warren co-founded Energy Transfer in 1996, which began as a small intrastate natural gas pipeline operator and is now one of the largest and most diversified publicly traded energy companies in the industry.

Other speakers featured at the conference include: Christian Kendall, President and CEO of Denbury Resources, Inc.; Doug Suttles, Encana CEO ; Mike Sommers, Chairman, President, and CEO of Crestwood Equity Partners LP; and Wendy King, Vice President, Great Plains BU, Lower 48 USA, ConocoPhillips.
