Summary of the Whistler Pipeline Project Video
– Hi, I’m Philip Hundl with the Law Firm of Wadler, Perches, Hundl and Kerlick. My practice area focuses primarily on representing landowners in condemnation matters.
First off, I apologize for my voice, it’s a little raspy. But I wanted to visit with everyone briefly about a pipeline that’s been talked about and much anticipated for awhile. It’s the Whistler Pipeline, and the affiliated company is WhiteWater Midstream.
This pipeline project runs from Pecos County down south of San Antonio through Dimmit County, Kenedy County, Maverick County, La Salle County, McMullen County, Duval County, Jim Wells County, and all the way to Nueces County, Corpus Christi. This is a natural gas pipeline.
The reason why I want to bring this to your attention is that this project seemed to be on hold for awhile, but now things are getting back on track.
I’ve got a map of the project. It shows the main Whistler Pipeline, and there are several laterals on this Whistler Pipeline. It’s approximately 450 miles long.
Talk with an Attorney About Your Rights Related to Pipeline Company Access for Surveys
If you’re a landowner affected by this pipeline, I always say you should know where you are in the condemnation process. The chart at right lists 12 steps. Right now, there are quite a few landowners who are still in the initial part of the process, really step one or step two. The right of way agents for WhiteWater and Whistler are attempting to get access to land along the route to do surveying. These include various archeological surveys, historical surveys, and environmental surveys.
At this stage, landowners are asked to decide whether to grant access for surveys or not grant access. If access is granted, how is that access limited to protect the property owner? If access is not granted, how will the pipeline company use the courts to gain access for surveys?
I strongly recommend you seek legal counsel to make sure you’re starting the process with the right temporary access agreement. Hopefully that’s helpful, thank you very much.
