The company that built the Dakota Access oil pipeline filed suit against Greenpeace and other environmental groups Tuesday alleging they disseminated false information about the project and interfered with construction.

Crude oil is now flowing through the Dakota Access Pipeline, despite months of protests against it by Native American tribes and environmental groups.

The pipeline spans more than 1,000 miles from North Dakota to Illinois and cost some $3.8 billion to construct. It is expected to transport approximately 520,000 barrels of oil daily.
