Landowners Get Pipeline Info

Posted: Updated:

Landowners in oil country have made deals for the mineral rights for their land over the past several years in western North Dakota.

But now, many are being approached to make deals with companies wishing to put in pipelines on their property.

The question is, what constitutes a good, fair easement deal for landowners and pipeline companies?

The Dakota Resource Council is hosting a meeting with landowners tonight in Stanley, offering information about pipeline easements.

One of the presenters at the meeting says it's important for landowners to be patient when making a deal.

(Donny Nelson, Keene - Dakota Resource Council) "If they can take advantage of you they will. If you sign the first agreement that comes along you're probably not going to get what you want. It's a learning process."

Nelson ranches near Keene and says this oil boom is much bigger and very different from past booms in the region and landowners need to be cautious in dealing with companies that want to use their land.
