When landowners are faced with a potential pipeline easement across their property, there are many things that should be considered. The first, and likely the most important, is that landowners are not completely at the mercy of the large energy companies. Yes, the power of eminent domain may make the presence of the pipeline an eventuality, but many things are negotiable in the process. Compensation, easement language, and access rights are all examples.

Attorneys can play a large role in that negotiation process, but landowners can also help themselves. An Ohio Farm Bureau official recently led a meeting in Lorain County about pipeline easements and the negotiation process. A lot of good information was shared.
