CORRECTED-U.S. appeals court denies Dakota Access oil pipeline stay request

(Corrects headline to specify “appeals court” denied request)

NEW YORK, May 13 (Reuters) - U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Thursday denied a request from operators of the Dakota Access oil pipeline for a stay, while they seek a Supreme Court review in the company’s battle to keep the line open.

The 570,000 barrels-per-day (bpd) pipeline is the largest out of the Bakken shale basin of North Dakota and operators have been locked in a legal battle with Native American tribes on whether the line can stay open.
