"Acquisition of Rights for Pipelines in Louisiana" was the topic explored by Cheryl Kornick and Matt Simione, both of Liskow & Lewis, on Tuesday, August 26th. The Oil & Gas Law Committee and Kelly Becker, Chair, welcomed attendees who enjoyed a discussion on issues and rules involved in negotiating for, and litigating over, a pipeline or other right of way agreement. Ms. Kornick and Mr.Simione identified the basics of a servitude or right-of-way agreement – what they can contain; what they should contain; areas of dispute. They examined the rules for litigation and of expropriation suits. They concluded by reviewing recent trends in legislation regarding right-of-ways and expropriation lawsuits at the state, parish, and local levels.
