Dakota Express Oil Pipeline is a canceled oil pipeline that would have transported crude oil from North Dakota's Bakken formation to Illinois, United States. The Dakota Express Oil Pipeline is a separate and distinct project from the high-profile and controversial Dakota Access Oil Pipeline.
The pipeline would have originated in North Dakota and terminated in Patoka, Illinois.
