U.S. District Court orders Dakota Access oil pipeline can remain open

NEW YORK, May 21 (Reuters) - A U.S. federal court judge denied on Friday a request by Native American tribes to shut the Dakota Access oil pipeline after a key environmental permit was scrapped last year.

The 570,000 barrel per day (bpd) pipeline out of North Dakota that travels under a Missouri River reservoir is likely to stay running at least until an environmental review of the line is completed next year.
