Summary of the Wink to Webster Pipeline Update Video
– Hi, I’m Philip Hundl and I’m an attorney. My law practice focuses on condemnation and representing landowners facing eminent domain proceedings or condemnation proceedings. I want to give you all an update on a particular project that we spoke about earlier this year. It’s called Wink to Webster Pipeline Project.
This was a large pipeline project, approximately 600 miles long. It affects approximately 26 counties in Texas. Wink to Webster, with the help of their right of way agents or acquisition agents, was acquiring easements and rights of way.
Then all of a sudden the project was canceled or put on hold. We’ve monitored this project to see if it would get started again or get reincarnated as another project. The “word” was that some other company would probably acquire the easements that have already been acquired and get this project back on line.
We’re still working on getting more information about it, but, as of right now, according to the Railroad Commission, there’s a New Construction Report that was received by the Railroad Commission December 4, 2019. The New Construction Report number is 19-NC-231. As you may remember, their T-4 Permit was number 10036.
So it looks like maybe this project is back on line now. Interestingly, we have received quite a few calls from landowners who had reached deals with Wink to Webster, signed documents and then were never paid. It will be interesting to see how those play out now since there was some pause or discontinuation of the project.
So it looks like Wink to Webster may be back on. It’s a 36-inch crude oil transmission pipeline. This project, like most of these projects, will run in a lot of rural areas. However, it also runs through quite a few subdivisions. The Wink to Webster Pipeline project is supposed to run right through the middle of a subdivision in Montgomery County.
It will be interesting to see what transpires with the Wink to Webster Pipeline project. We will keep you all updated as we find out more about it. Good luck.
