I've asked about the pipe lease. Please help with permanent easement agreement

Thanks to you guys i worked out a good lease for pipe line lease.
They also have a permanent easement agreement. They are laying appx. 2500 feet of line and the easement allows for 150 feet wide. This calculates out to about 9 acres.

Has anyone signed one of these along with pipe line lease and for how much. How wide was yours. Should I want any specific language. I figure I will not be able to timber this for ever. And are basically selling it. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Is this  temporary work space or what?

No...this is for a permanent easement

That is really wide you need professional help.

Thank you

I am the first to admit I know nothing about ROW agreements....but retain the subsurface rights at all costs.

Jason......Is this pipe line considered a gathering line per your lease or an intrastate line as only in your state? Interstate pipelines, multi-states are regulated under the jurisdiction of FERC and complies with their EIS ( environmental impact statement ) policy. On this site you can go to the top search right corner and search pipeline easements. You can also go to local land groups and join ET Rover Landowners Group for discussions.

Timber is considered a crop, don't make a fast decision and sell your timber out. You can have an addendum as exhibit B incorporated in your  ROW agreement that will not land-lock you from the rest of your land. You should also consider damage to the residue of remaining land.        

We have dealt with the timber issue and making sure we can access the rest of the land. The pipes are gathering lines. We are in the middle of several compressors and processing plants. Plus there adding a water station near us. It's getting busy around our area.


I hope you did not negotiate your pipeline easement contract based on the opinions and comments of anonymous people on the internet. As to your current topic there is really only one smart answer, and it is the same as the only smart answer to your first topic.

Pay someone to advise you, I did when I leased my acreage for a production unit and would have had a pipeline easement ever been in question.

Please take my advice with the kindness that it was intended.

Not all attorneys are out to suck you dry. I had problems finding one who would do the things I wished him to do but eventually I found a great guy that I like very much.

And because we have him we don't have the problems that would require him, if you get my drift.

I absolutely agree with David.  This ROW is enormous; they may be planning something they aren't telling you about.  These agreements are complex; I've negotiated several and wouldn't dream of doing another without using my attorney every step of the way.
