Pipeline Easements: The Next Knock on the Doors of Ohio Landowners

Pipeline Easements: The Next Knock on the Doors of Ohio Landowners

As oil and gas activities continue in Ohio’s Utica Shale play, an increasing number of Ohio landowners will have pipeline company representatives asking for a pipeline easement. We are concerned for Ohio landowners who sign these easements before completely understanding the terms in the easement and the rights that are being given up. An easement is usually FOREVER and can negatively affect the value of adjacent land – - not just the “narrow strip” that is usually requested for an easement. We prepared the article found at the Pipeline Easement Topic Tab which we hope provides more information on Pipeline Easements.
