I own acreage in Pecos County,Texas. I have 100% mineral rights which I have no interest in selling at the present time. That being said,the GCX pipeline is coming directly through my property. They are wishing to give me a paltry $1500 to lay the pipeline through my land. Being since a pipeline is in operation a minimum of 30-50 years and probably longer, my land will be torn up for the rest of my lifetime !! I’ve heard charge per sq foot instead of by foot or linear rod(@16 ft.), to ask for a term lease( standard is 10 year). They’ve retained a law firm Zabel Freeman,who are now threatening me with eminent domain and wishing to pay only $86 total !!! Who in their right mind would let someone tear up their land for a lifetime for only $86 ? !!! I’d rather them go around my land !!!
Could someone with a little expertise on the matter please respond. It would be deeply appreciated !!!
