brat,  I am not an attorney and this is NOT a legal document.  It is only a collection of miscellaneous thoughts, notes and comments of issues that one could consider as part of an overall evaluation of a ROW agreement.  It is for reference only!!  You should consult a qualified attorney when considering an agreement.  Good luck!   Js%20Pipeline%20ROW%20Requirements%20NON-LEGAL%2012-22-13.pdf
