Pipeline Plans Go Through Citizens Properties

Another pipeline on his land is nothing new for Steve Hobbs, the 21st district representative. He already has several pipelines crisscrossing underneath his farmland just outside of Mexico and he has no objection to another one.

"I have several of them and our experiences with the pipelines have usually been very positive and they've usually been pretty good to the landowners," commented Hobbs.

Trans Canada held a public meeting to show landowners its plan for a 1,760 mile crude oil pipeline. The keystone pipeline would stretch from Hardisty Alberta, Canada to Patoka, Illinois and carry the equivalent of 435,000 barrels of oil per day.

Pipeline project manager Brian Peterson said, "Certainly at this early stage the more input we get from the local communities, the more opportunity there is to have an influence on location and timing and other issues of concern."

Hobbs has been working with Trans Canada for more than a year and is on the Eminent Domain Task Force and said landowners shouldn't fear Trans Canada taking over their property.

"They're going to be negotiating easements with landowners, much like a utility company will and compensating folks for that easement," said Hobbs. "Some of the things we're looking at in my legislation is that they deal fairly with the landowners and that they put the property back in the same condition it was before the pipeline came through."

Hobbs said the local economic impact of the pipeline is also a plus.

"There's going to be some money that our community is going to take in through lodging and through providing supplies for this project. Of course you also have the downside that people's farms are going to be disrupted," Hobbs said.

Disruption won't come anytime soon though. Trans Canada doesn't plan to begin construction until 2008 and admits the placement of the pipeline can still change. The keystone pipeline is estimated to bring $360 million to Missouri's economy.
