As good neighbors, the team at Rangeland will work closely with you to reduce the impact of our operations on traffic, noise levels, buildings, fences, crops, water supplies, soil, vegetation and air and water quality. When construction is underway, we will restore the land as soon as construction is complete and weather permits. We are also committed to the protection of public lands, endangered species and wildlife and archaeological and historic sites.
Our operations often involve the execution of written agreements or easements with landowners. These arrangements allow us to build and maintain pipeline rights-of-way or other facilities on private property. A right-of-way is a strip of land that contains the pipeline or facility and a clear access area on either side for inspection and maintenance as well as an unobstructed view for ongoing aerial surveillance. A pipeline right-of-way is generally 75 to 100 feet wide during construction. Permanent rights-of-way are usually 50 feet wide. An easement is a right to make use of another person’s property.
If we are thinking about locating a pipeline or a related facility on or adjacent to your property we will contact you early in the process as we study the route and assess its environmental impact. We may ask you for an easement or an option to purchase some of your property to establish rights-of-way for construction and operation of a pipeline or other facilities like valves and receivers, compressor stations and subsurface storage fields
Our goal is open communication and long-term relationships that are productive for everyone. We value transparency and always seek to understand the issues, concerns and goals of everyone impacted by our operations.
