Phillips 66 supports further expansion of Dakota Access Pipeline

The top executive at Houston-based Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX) sees opportunities to expand his company’s existing pipeline infrastructure. Phillips 66 is one of the joint venture owners behind the Dakota Access Pipeline, which pulls crude oil out of the Bakken shale and sends it south toward coastal refining and export centers. Greg Garland, CEO and chairman of Phillips 66, said that pipeline has been running at capacity, and he thinks it could expand further.
