Landowners, lawyers talk about projected pipeline

http://www.fostoriafocus.com/landowners-lawyers-talk-about-projected-pip...
From article:

“If we can get between the gas company and you, the property owners, we can do amazing things,” Goldman said.
“The easements [provided by ET Rover] you’re being asked to sign or will be asked to sign are not good easements,” he said. “They will give you problems if you try to enforce good work practices during the construction phase, and I promise you, they will diminish the value of your property in the future because there are too many questions that go unanswered in the easements that are being presented.”
Some of those attending the meeting complained about the land agents acting aggressively, threatening lawsuits if they were kept from immediately going onto the land.
The lawyers said the land agents and company want to move as quickly as possible, but they don’t have the right to just walk onto someone’s land whenever they want.
Braunstein told those in the audience not be intimidated by the phrase “eminent domain” or the land agents coming to their property.
“You’re making a very important decision,” he said. “It’s not entirely voluntary, that’s true, but if you sign an agreement with these people, that is final."

"It may or may not be an unlikely scenario, but allowing a gas pipeline to be sited on your property could put you at risk of technically violating your mortgage agreement, say local experts who are investigating the legal ramifications of the Tennessee Gas Pipeline proposal for its Northeast Expansion project."

Another silly off topic comment from WSPD Fred. Sorry but this will be a important source for many in Northwest Ohio. You and your dittoheads may make fun but others are dead serious here (watch the read counter). We all know how your employer favors fossil fuels over alternative energy. I imagine WSPD will not cover this issue in a fair and balanced way. I'm sure Americans for Prosperity has already sent you the memo on this. Check your corporate E-mail for further instruction.

This pipeline will run through Northwest Ohio possibly in much of the Oak Openings region rich in sensitive endangered species. The pipeline is between 36" to 42" in diameter causing possible huge fire risks to this wooded area. Here we have fracked wells in Pennsylvania producing American natural gas piped for foreign markets in Canada. What the hell happened to energy independence for America? This pipeline will be forced on Americans to line the pockets of the energy companies.

I received my e mail from Karl Rove last night, Americans for Prosperity on Saturday, and the Council On Foreign Relations Friday night. I expect when I open my mail this morning I'll have similar notes from Kissinger, the RNC, and my friends the Koch brothers. I hope this gets a bigger crowd than the Move To Amend meeting.
By the way, saying that WSPD missed the lead is incorrect. WSPD is a company and as we all know companies aren't people.

About two hundred filled the Napoleon Legion Hall. The farm bureau sponsored meeting was hosted by farm bureau director of energy services Dale Arnold (PH# 614.246.8294) and the legal firm Emens & Wolper Law Firm (614.414.0888). The meeting lasted about two hours. Dale covered the latest information on the three proposed pipelines in Northwest Ohio. The only reporter I could see was ALLISON REAMER NWS Staff Writer (allison@northwestsignal.net) who wrote the following report 9/18/2014 Landowners learn about pipeline project, landowner rights . http://www.northwestsignal.net/news/article_2dadc0e2-70c2-52bc-aa03-2002...
I do not live in the area but one of my relatives own a mostly 100 year old heavily wooded twenty acre property within the proposed Nexus pipeline route along the Fulton Lucas county line. Much of pipeline route is in the sensitive Oak Openings Eco system. The easement would clear cut a 100 foot swath placing a 36 inch natural gas pipeline through much of eastern wooded Fulton county. As of today the pipeline is advertised as low pressure but Dale Arnold said that could change to a high pressure line. He said nothing is in ink more in pencil, subject to change. The Nexus gas pipeline is from the Utica Shale region and will supply mostly Canada, exporting our energy independence.

At the meeting's end was a question and answer period. I had the last question of the day. I asked Dale that I though his whole presentation was on the order of settlement with the gas pipeline companies. I told him some of us don't want to be partners with oil companies. I asked him about how to fight this and not to settle. I then asked for a show of hands by the audience on how many who don't want the pipeline at all on their property. About one third of the 200 in attendance raised their hands. I would guess these were homeowners and not farmers concerned about dealing with the shady pipeline companies. After the meeting I was approached by many who thanked me for raising the same questions they were thinking. One man is associated with the Wabash Cannonball trail and would like to fight this pipeline crossing the sensitive area of the trail. Future meetings are being scheduled contact Dale Arnold.

Nexus gas pipeline meets resistance. Recent Ogden township meeting representatives from DTE Energy and Spectra Energy gave their presentation for the NEXUS natural gas pipeline. Ogden township was the hotbed of resistance to a proposed renewable energy wind farm a few years ago. Many of the township board are members of the non profit corporation Interstate Informed Citizens Coalition. Here are a few excerpts from the meeting.

Pipeline project possible in Ogden Township
http://www.blissfieldadvance.com/pipeline-project-possible-in-ogden-town...
Quote from article:

"Ogden Township Trustee Eric Martis spoke first for the board in response to the pipeline presentation. Martis said the project seems very similar to the one the township faced with the emerging wind turbine propositions. Martis said the wind developers were faced with resistance from township residents being too close to their lifestyle. Martis added the natural gas production should not be used in Ohio and funneled into Michigan, but instead should be completely generated and produced in the state."

Eric Martis again:

"We don't care what the federal regulatory commision says, "Martis said. "We have local laws and regulations here and if we don't want this project here, then move on!"

Another Ogden Board Trustee Mark Vandenbusche adds: "I'm on this board to represent this community that we do not want this."

Medina County landowners rallying against proposed NEXUS gas pipeline

Quote from article:
"Elizabeth Gierosky was gardening when a car pulled into her driveway on Spieth Road in Litchfield Township at about 5 p.m. Aug. 28.
A man got out of the vehicle and walked around the back and side of the property.
She assumed he was a contractor or inspector, because she and her husband, Paul, were in the middle of remodeling their home.
He wasn’t. He was a senior right-of-way agent for NEXUS Gas Transmission, a 36-inch natural gas pipeline project across Ohio being led by the Texas-based Spectra Energy Corp.
After walking around her yard for about 10 minutes, he asked her to sign off on a request allowing the property to be surveyed for the pipeline.
“I don’t know what he was doing back there,” she said.
“I refused to sign for the survey, though, and I knew that’s what my husband would have done, too.”
Gierosky isn’t alone. She’s a member of a growing group of residents with safety and property-value concerns regarding the pipeline. About a half-dozen of them showed up at Tuesday’s Medina County commissioners meeting to ask them once more to back residents up in their resistance to the pipeline"

Most of these people just received information letters or found gas pipeline representatives trespassing on their property. The Napoleon Farm bureau meeting was attended by 200 landowners, something you wouldn't know about Fred. Pretty good turnout without using media. Your anti wind friends at IICC are now fighting the fossil fuel companies as per the wind turbine companies. Some of their comments are truly naive of federal law and to think they are now elected representatives in Ogden township.

Landowner advocate: NEXUS pipeline project is abuse of owners’ rights
http://medinagazette.northcoastnow.com/2014/09/24/advocate-pipeline-proj...
Quote from article:
"A group of Medina County landowners are getting support from a Columbus nonprofit in their fight to stop the NEXUS Gas Transmission pipeline from being built on their property.
Maurice Thompson, executive director of the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law, said he is willing to represent individual landowners if the company attempts to use Ohio’s eminent domain law to seize property for the 36-inch natural gas pipeline that is planned to go through Medina County on its way to Canada.
“If the pipeline does threaten eminent domain, that’s when we’ll step in free of charge to the landowners,” he said. “We don’t want to stop the pipeline. We just want the companies behind it to respect the landowners’ rights.”

And this

“The statute is unconstitutional,” Thompson said. “No private actor has the right to use eminent domain to appropriate private property for their own personal gain.”

espite the company's increasingly sophisticated political and public-relations operations, Charles' philosophy of regulatory resistance was about to bite Koch Industries – in the form of record civil and criminal financial penalties imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Koch entered the 1990s on a pipeline-buying spree. By 1994, its network measured 37,000 miles. According to sworn testimony from former Koch employees, the company operated its pipelines with almost complete disregard for maintenance. As Koch employees understood it, this was in keeping with their CEO's trademarked business philosophy, Market­Based Management.

For Charles, MBM – first communicated to employees in 1991 – was an attempt to distill the business practices that had grown Koch into one of the largest oil businesses in the world. To incentivize workers, Koch gives employees bonuses that correlate to the value they create for the company. "Salary is viewed only as an advance on compensation for value," Koch wrote, "and compensation has an unlimited upside."

To prevent the stagnation that can often bog down big enterprises, Koch was also determined to incentivize risk-taking. Under MBM, Koch Industries books opportunity costs – "profits foregone from a missed opportunity" – as though they were actual losses on the balance sheet. Koch employees who play it safe, in other words, can't strike it rich.

On paper, MBM sounds innovative and exciting. But in Koch's hyperaggressive corporate culture, it contributed to a series of environmental disasters. Applying MBM to pipeline maintenance, Koch employees calculated that the opportunity cost of shutting down equipment to ensure its safety was greater than the profit potential of pushing aging pipe to its limits.

The fact that preventive pipeline maintenance is required by law didn't always seem to register. Dubose, a 26-year Koch veteran who oversaw pipeline areas in Louisiana, would testify about the company's lax attitude toward maintenance. "It was a question of money. It would take away from our profit margin." The testimony of another pipeline manager would echo that of Dubose: "Basically, the philosophy was 'If it ain't broke, don't work on it.'"

When small spills occurred, Dubose testified, the company would cover them up. He recalled incidents in which the company would use the churn of a tugboat's engine to break up waterborne spills and "just kind of wash that thing on down, down the river." On land, Dubose said, "They might pump it [the leaked oil] off into a drum, then take a shovel and just turn the earth over." When larger spills were reported to authorities, the volume of the discharges was habitually low-balled, according to Dubose.

Managers pressured employees to falsify pipeline-maintenance records filed with federal authorities; in a sworn affidavit, pipeline worker Bobby Conner recalled arguments with his manager over Conner's refusal to file false reports: "He would always respond with anger," Conner said, "and tell me that I did not know how to be a Koch employee." Conner was fired and later settled a wrongful-termination suit with Koch Gateway Pipeline. Dubose testified that Charles was not in the dark about the company's operations. "He was in complete control," Dubose said. "He was the one that was line-driving this Market-Based Management at meetings."

Before the worst spill from this time, Koch employees had raised concerns about the integrity of a 1940s-era pipeline in South Texas. But the company not only kept the line in service, it increased the pressure to move more volume. When a valve snapped shut in 1994, the brittle pipeline exploded. More than 90,000 gallons of crude spewed into Gum Hollow Creek, fouling surrounding marshlands and both Nueces and Corpus Christi bays with a 12-mile oil slick.

By 1995, the EPA had seen enough. It sued Koch for gross violations of the Clean Water Act. From 1988 through 1996, the company's pipelines spilled 11.6 million gallons of crude and petroleum products. Internal Koch records showed that its pipelines were in such poor condition that it would require $98 million in repairs to bring them up to industry standard.

Ultimately, state and federal agencies forced Koch to pay a $30 million civil penalty – then the largest in the history of U.S. environmental law – for 312 spills across six states. Carol Browner, the former EPA administrator, said of Koch, "They simply did not believe the law applied to them." This was not just partisan rancor. Texas Attorney General John Cornyn, the future Republican senator, had joined the EPA in bringing suit against Koch. "This settlement and penalty warn polluters that they cannot treat oil spills simply as the cost of doing business," Cornyn said. (The Kochs seem to have no hard feelings toward their one-time tormentor; a lobbyist for Koch was the number-two bundler for Cornyn's primary campaign this year.)

Koch wasn't just cutting corners on its pipelines. It was also violating federal environmental law in other corners of the empire. Through much of the 1990s at its Pine Bend refinery in Minnesota, Koch spilled up to 600,000 gallons of jet fuel into wetlands near the Mississippi River. Indeed, the company was treating the Mississippi as a sewer, illegally dumping ammonia-laced wastewater into the river – even increasing its discharges on weekends when it knew it wasn't being monitored. Koch Petroleum Group eventually pleaded guilty to "negligent discharge of a harmful quantity of oil" and "negligent violation of the Clean Water Act," was ordered to pay a $6 million fine and $2 million in remediation costs, and received three years' probation. This facility had already been declared a Superfund site in 1984.

In 2000, Koch was hit with a 97-count indictment over claims it violated the Clean Air Act by venting massive quantities of benzene at a refinery in Corpus Christi – and then attempted to cover it up. According to the indictment, Koch filed documents with Texas regulators indicating releases of just 0.61 metric tons of benzene for 1995 – one-tenth of what was allowed under the law. But the government alleged that Koch had been informed its true emissions that year measured 91 metric tons, or 15 times the legal limit.

By the time the case came to trial, however, George W. Bush was in office and the indictment had been significantly pared down – Koch faced charges on only seven counts. The Justice Department settled in what many perceived to be a sweetheart deal, and Koch pleaded guilty to a single felony count for covering up the fact that it had disconnected a key pollution-control device and did not measure the resulting benzene emissions – receiving five years' probation. Despite skirting stiffer criminal prosecution, Koch was handed $20 million in fines and reparations – another historic judgment.

On the day before Danielle Smalley was to leave for college, she and her friend Jason Stone were hanging out in her family's mobile home. Seventeen years old, with long chestnut hair, Danielle began to feel nauseated. "Dad," she said, "we smell gas." It was 3:45 in the afternoon on August 24th, 1996, near Lively, Texas, some 50 miles southeast of Dallas. The Smalleys were too poor to own a telephone. So the teens jumped into her dad's 1964 Chevy pickup to alert the authorities. As they drove away, the truck stalled where the driveway crossed a dry creek bed. Danielle cranked the ignition, and a fireball engulfed the truck. "You see two children burned to death in front of you – you never forget that," Danielle's father, Danny, would later tell reporters.

Unknown to the Smalleys, a decrepit Koch pipeline carrying liquid butane – literally, lighter fluid – ran through their subdivision. It had ruptured, filling the creek bed with vapor, and the spark from the pickup's ignition had set off a bomb. Federal investigators documented both "severe corrosion" and "mechanical damage" in the pipeline. A National Transportation Safety Board report would cite the "failure of Koch Pipeline Company LP to adequately protect its pipeline from corrosion."

Installed in the early Eighties, the pipeline had been out of commission for three years. When Koch decided to start it up again in 1995, a water-pressure test had blown the pipe open. An inspection of just a few dozen miles of pipe near the Smal­ley home found 538 corrosion defects. The industry's term of art for a pipeline in this condition is Swiss cheese, according to the testimony of an expert witness – "essentially the pipeline is gone."

Koch repaired only 80 of the defects – enough to allow the pipeline to withstand another pressure check – and began running explosive fluid down the line at high pressure in January 1996. A month later, employees discovered that a key anti­corrosion system had malfunctioned, but it was never fixed. Charles Koch had made it clear to managers that they were expected to slash costs and boost profits. In a sternly worded memo that April, Charles had ordered his top managers to cut expenditures by 10 percent "through the elimination of waste (I'm sure there is much more waste than that)" in order to increase pre-tax earnings by $550 million a year.

The Smalley trial underscored something Bill Koch had said about the way his brothers ran the company: "Koch Industries has a philosophy that profits are above everything else." A former Koch manager, Kenoth Whitstine, testified to incidents in which Koch Industries placed profits over public safety. As one supervisor had told him, regulatory fines "usually didn't amount to much" and, besides, the company had "a stable full of lawyers in Wichita that handled those situations." When Whitstine told another manager he was concerned that unsafe pipelines could cause a deadly accident, this manager said that it was more profitable for the company to risk litigation than to repair faulty equipment. The company could "pay off a lawsuit from an incident and still be money ahead," he said, describing the principles of MBM to a T.

At trial, Danny Smalley asked for a judgment large enough to make the billionaires feel pain: "Let Koch take their child out there and put their children on the pipeline, open it up and let one of them die," he told the jury. "And then tell me what that's worth." The jury was emphatic, awarding Smalley $296 million – then the largest wrongful-death judgment in American legal history. He later settled with Koch for an undisclosed sum and now runs a pipeline-safety foundation in his daughter's name. He declined to comment for this story. "It upsets him too much," says an associate.

JACKSON TWP. The NEXUS Gas Transmission open house buzzed Wednesday night with local landowners’ questions about the proposed natural gas pipeline.
How close could it be to my property? What will the pipeline carry? How big will it be? Will NEXUS restore the land after construction? What happens if there’s a leak?
Some of the more than 100 property owners from Stark and neighboring counties left the meeting at Stark State College satisfied with the
answers they got. Others still had questions and concerns.
“I wish they’d put it someplace else, not in a populated area,” said Ed Crum, 75, who lives north of Maximo on Oakhill Avenue NE in Washington Township.

“A 42-inch line. That is a monster.”
