Are you affected by the Western Haynesville Gathering Line pipeline project in Leon County, Texas? In this video, Landowner Condemnation Rights Attorney Philip Hundl describes the project and it’s potential impact on affected landowners.
Summary of the Western Haynesville Gathering Line Video
Comstock Oil and Gas is a pipeline company that is planning to build a 16-inch line called the Western Haynesville Gathering Line or Gathering System in Leon County, Texas, south of Marquez. The company is seeking a 50-foot-wide easement for the pipeline and a 25-foot-wide temporary easement for construction purposes. Landowners in the area should be aware of their rights and the company’s obligations if they are contacted by Comstock Oil and Gas. The T4 permit for the project is connected with Pinnacle Gas Treating LLC and more research is being done to understand the connection between the two companies. It is important for landowners to be informed and to seek legal advice if they are approached by the company.
Hi, I’m Philip Hundl. I’m an attorney who focuses on representing landowners facing eminent domain proceedings. I also help landowners facing pipeline companies seeking easements, either by private voluntary agreement or voluntary easement negotiations. During those negotiations the pipeline company may talk about using their power of eminent domain, if they have it, to obtain the easement that they’re seeking.
Western Haynesville Gathering Line Pipeline Alert
I always like to bring you these pipeline alerts. Sometimes these pipeline alerts involve big transmission lines which might be 36 inches, 42 inches, or 46 inches in diameter. These might be pipelines that cover many counties.
Sometimes the pipeline alert is for a gathering line that could be anywhere from six inches to 16 inches in diameter. The project I’m talking about right now is in Leon County just south of Marquez, Texas. It’s a 16-inch line with a 50-foot-wide easement.
Comstock Oil and Gas is the pipeline company behind this project they call the Western Haynesville Gathering Line or Gathering System. If you’re contacted by them, I want you to be aware of your rights and their obligations.
I believe they’re also seeking a 25-foot-wide temporary easement for construction purposes. Where they’re going underneath roads, they’ll need anywhere from a 50-by-100 or 100-by-100-foot additional temporary workspace.
We requested the T4 permit and they gave us what they said was the T4 relating to this project. We’re going to do a little more research and background but this T4 permit, and we’ll include it on the blog, is connected with Pinnacle Gas Treating LLC.
So we’re going to see what the connection is between Comstock Oil and Gas, and Pinnacle Gas Treating LLC. But for now, this is just a pipeline alert for those Leon County landowners who may be affected. Thanks.
