Summary of the Bluewater Texas Terminal Project Video
– Hi, I’m Philip Hundl, I’m an attorney with Wadler, Perches, Hundl & Kerlick. Our principal office is in Wharton County in Wharton. We also have offices in El Campo and in Richmond and Fulshear in Fort Bend County.
I handle land litigation, primarily condemnation cases for landowners throughout the state of Texas. From time to time I like to discuss different projects that landowners are asking me about. Perhaps the landowners have been contacted by a pipeline company, or right of way agents for a pipeline company and have questions. In an effort to provide information to other landowners who may also be in the path of a particular project or close to the project, I like to provide condemnation project information to the landowners on my website.
Today I’d like to mention a project that’s come to my attention — it’s a Phillips 66 project in Aransas and San Patricio Counties. It’s about 22 miles long from one end to the other end. One end is in Aransas Pass and it runs through more or less developed areas. The route passes north of Gregory, the Gregory-Portland area, and then it terminates near County Road 983.
The Bluewater Line Is Awaiting Approval
This project has been referred to as the Bluewater Texas Terminal LLC or Bluewater Line by Phillips 66. Phillips 66 Pipeline LLC company submitted the T4 application to the Railroad Commission, and then revised it multiple times. The Company initially submitted an application January 15, 2019. It was then rejected multiple times for, it appears, lack of information or not being complete, and it was rejected again on January 17th, on January 25th, and on January 31st.
Each time Phillips 66 submitted more information to the Railroad Commission. Then it was rejected again on February 19th. I am waiting to get some additional information on this line from the Railroad Commission. As I get that information, I will absolutely provide it to the landowners out there, linking it to my website or shooting another video.
So in summary, this is the Bluewater Texas Terminal Project. It appears that the application has been rejected multiple times. To date it may have already been approved by the Railroad Commission, it’s just hard to tell. It runs through San Patricio County and Aransas County, and it would have about 22 miles of pipeline.
If you might be affected by this pipeline I suggest you contact a lawyer who is familiar with and handles condemnation cases. I recommend that you work with a lawyer who works for landowners to help you understand the process and your rights. Please, before you sign anything, know what you’re signing and the best way, to do that is to visit with a lawyer who is familiar with condemnation. Good luck.
