Summary of the AMP 12 Cobra Line Alert
Hi, this is Phillip Hundl. I’m here with a pipeline alert. I like to do these from time to time as I become aware of new pipeline projects. These could be very large transmission line pipeline projects or small gathering line pipeline projects that are affecting landowners. I like to bring these to your attention.
The AMP 12 Cobra Line is a gathering line pipeline project. The pipeline company is one that we’ve talked about before on this website. It’s called Aspen Midstream or AMP. They’ve had some large projects in the past, and I’ll show you a map from their website. As you can see, this large green pipeline is there. There is a large transmission line that they built a couple of years ago. Now there are a lot of these smaller gathering lines. They have a lot of these gathering lines in Washington County, Fayette County, and Austin County.
I want to talk to you about the one in Austin County, near Skull Creek Road. This is near the town of Shelby, near Industry in Austin County. And I’m going to show you the Railroad Commission map on this. So once again, if want to know more about Aspen Midstream, you can look on their website. It’s right there, www.aspenmidstream.com.
Right of Way Acquisition Information
The right of way acquisition company agents are with a company called Defined Land Management. Defined Land Management is one of many right of way acquisition companies, and they seem to do a lot of work for Aspen Midstream in the Austin County, Fayette County and Washington County areas.
This one in particular is called the AMP 12 Cobra Line. Normally that will refer to a 12-inch diameter line. Aspen Midstream is seeking 30 foot wide permanent pipeline easements with 25 to 30 to 50 foot wide temporary easements for construction of the pipeline. The width of the temporary easements depends on the amount of space that they think they may need for construction at that spot.
I’m hovering over Skull Creek. This is near the intersection between FM 389 and FM 1457. That is the little town of Shelby, Texas. There’s a lot of activity here. They have a facility or a site compressor station there on Skull Creek Road, and I’m hovering over that.
These wells are horizontal wells. The operator is Verdun Oil and Gas. Once again, these are horizontal gas wells primarily in the Austin Chalk Formation.
Get Help to Negotiate Your Easement
Hopefully this information about the AMP 12 Cobra Line project is helpful. Like with any pipeline projects, whether gathering lines or large transmission projects an easement document is important because it will compromise the property owner’s rights to his own property. So it’s extremely important to get with an attorney who handles these cases so you can better understand the process and protect your rights as a landowner.
