Summary of the BANGL Pipeline Expansion Video
Hello, this is Phil Hundl with a pipeline alert. I strive to bring these updates to you as they unfold. It seems Whitewater Midstream is working on another project. We’ve previously discussed the Matterhorn and the Blackfin, and now we have the BANGL line. This is an ongoing project, which I’ll refer to as the BANGL Expansion.
The BANGL Expansion Affects a Number of Counties
At this point, it’s unclear whether this expansion will be a separately owned entity. Nevertheless, it’s set to span several counties. Essentially, the pipeline starts in Cotulla and extends to Sweeny, Texas. It will traverse through La Salle, McMullen, Live Oak, Bee County, Goliad, Victoria, and Jackson. Additionally, parts of Wharton and Matagorda County will also be included. If you’re residing in any of these counties, you’re likely to see these pipelines along the usual routes.
There are also pre-existing pipelines that the BANGL line seems to follow. In particular, it appears to align with a corridor where numerous DCP Midstream lines run.
Get Help in Negotiating a Temporary Access Agreement
If a right-of-way agent contacts you, or if you’re located along this corridor, please be aware. We’ll provide a link to the proposed map for this expansion in our blog post. When you’re contacted, they’ll be seeking permission to survey your land. Often, right-of-way agents may ask for verbal consent, but remember that verbal agreements can be easily misinterpreted. Therefore, we advise our clients to secure an agreed limited temporary access agreement.
These right-of-way agents will initially contact you to access your property for surveying. This could involve various types of surveys. It’s essential to understand their intentions on your property and, importantly, the proposed route. This knowledge will allow you to influence the route as much as possible.
In some cases, the route could potentially be redirected off your property or onto a path that’s more suitable considering your property’s unique characteristics.
I hope this information is helpful. To reiterate, this is a pipeline alert for the BANGL Expansion by Whitewater Midstream. We’ll provide a link for more details. Good luck.
