Summary of the Pipeline Staging Area Video
All right, we’re here on Highway 71 in Wharton County, Texas. This is a pipeline staging area.
This is for the Kinder Morgan Crossover II Pipeline. It’s a large staging area with lots of the pipe stored here.
Staging areas can be located on row crop fields and this one was actually a pasture recently. They did some earth work and created terraces, so they could lay the pipe over it. Then they gather the pipe up with a large forklift and load it on trucks to transport to where it’s needed in the construction of the pipeline.
So this is one of the many staging areas along the Kinder Morgan Crossover II route. There’s one in Columbus, Texas, for the M2E3 Line. This one is just north of Garwood, Texas, along Highway 71.
Talk with an Experienced Attorney Before You Negotiate Easement Provisions
You’ll regret negotiating an easement agreement with the pipeline company if you don’t have the assistance of an experienced condemnation rights attorney. The right of way agent you may be dealing with works for the pipeline company, and he or she will not be serving your best interests.
A temporary easement for a pipeline staging area can burden your land for months and cause damage to the area of the easement and surrounding areas of your property. You should be compensated for the damages you sustain in connection with the pipeline staging area, any other temporary easements and of course the permanent easement.
You should also be compensated for damages to the remainder of your land caused by the construction and operation of a pipeline. An experienced condemnation rights lawyer can explain what those damages will be and how to seek compensation for them.
