What are my rights as a landowner with respect to using the land where the pipeline crosses it?

0

The pipeline company has thousands of easements that have been prepared over several decades so not all easements read the same. You can acquire a copy of your easement from your county/parish office of records to see the specific terms of your easement.Generally, no buildings or trees are allowed within the right-of-way but roads and sidewalks are usually allowed to cross the right-of-way. Shrubs and bushes less than 4 feet in height are allowed within the pipeline right-of-way but Spectra Energy does not normally pay for damages to such landscaping if they are damaged during maintenance or construction activities. Seasonal crops may be planted over the company’s pipelines (See answer to question 3 below for more information about crops).
