Vince.....they pay for a ROW by the ROD not yard. A rod is 16 feet. If the right of way proposed is 97 yards...call it 300 feet, divided by 16 ft/rod is approximately 6.6 rods. UT Texas schedule minimum is $120/rod for one 4 to 6 inch
pipeline. But the rate varies with how many and how large diameter the pipelines are to be placed in that ROW.
Keep in mind that the UT land compensation schedule is a MINIMUM suggested guideline. You are free to ask whatever
rate per rod YOU think it's worth to you for them to cross your property and up to them what they are willing to pay
you for that access. It depends on their side what they are planning to do with the line(s) placed in that ROW and how critical it is to their operation.
Are they crossing under a highway and tunneling onto your property? That would be a critical point in their pipeline
infrastructure and be worth more to them to have a secured ROW agreement with you to complete their line.
You need to get a lawyer to negotiate the price of the right of way for you with the company in question and do due
diligence on how critical that ROW is to the company's operation.
