Pipeline Easement

Hi. We have recently had a company contact us about putting an oil/gas pipeline through our property. They have the standard two or three page Easement that they want us to sign.

Does anyone have a copy of an easement that also protects the property owner? I understand there is an 8 or 9 page easement that is better than the standard one offered by the pipeline company.

My cousins are wanting to do this right away and I am more hesitant. We are in the Bakken area of North Dakota.


You are wise to be hesitant regarding this matter as the easement presented you by this company is most likely worded to their benefit. I would consider contacting an oil and gas attorney in regards to reviewing any document before signing.
