Map provided by Kinder-Morgan.


Exxon Mobil joined Houston-based Kinder Morgan in partnership with Midland-based EagleClaw Midstream on the $2 billion Permian Highway Pipeline. The 42-inch buried natural gas pipeline is 430 miles starting north of Fort Stockton and stretching across much of Texas’ Hill Country to its destinations near Houston. It connects with other lines that reach down near Agua Dulce. Both major lines feed smaller lines that stretch across Southeast and South Texas.

Project Details

The company purchased 50-foot easements from landowners, plus an additional 25 to 50 feet of work easements, for which landowners were also paid. Kinder Morgan officials said, “Once the line is buried, we return the land to as it was and landowners can still run livestock. We just require no buildings or long-rooted trees planted near the line.” The lines were buried at least four feet deep, then backfilled and the property reclaimed with groundcover.

B&G Update

Braun & Gresham attorneys worked with landowners impacted by the Permian Highway Pipeline to minimize the impacts to their land and achieve compensation for the portion(s) of their property impacted.

If you are a landowner facing condemnation, please do not hesitate to contact us at (512) 894-5426 or [email protected].


9/25/18 – Allen Fore, Kinder Morgan vice president of public affairs said, “We’re in the initial stages where we are contacting landowners, planning routes and starting permits.”

    Good morning,
    I am sure to be getting questions re how this affects the Llano. Do you happen to know how to obtain project maps for Kimble and Sutton County? Thanks…tyson

    Stop this terrible pipe line. No pipeline across our beautiful hill country. These terrible oil companies, their pipeline allies and bribed congress people like Sen Cruz (who says in his tv ad “I will fight for the oil and gas industry” against the American people have go \t to be stopped. NO PIPELINE ACROSS TEXAS!

    We have property in Gonzales & Caldwell counties near Hwy 304 & Reed Creek Rd. Do you have a map of that area & the land area the pipeline will take?

    The pipeline looks as though it goes through Harper School and straight down main street. This is not safe for anyone. I do not approve of this plan.

    Kinder already has one pipeline on my property in Schleicher county along with two other pipelines. This will be number 4. I want to make sure all my rights as a landowner are covered. The compensation for this current easement right and future compensation for all future constructions and repairs. When contacted by Kinder, they ask, “Are you going to hire a lawyer?”, my replay was “If you have lawyers why should’t I.”

    Who is responsible for the landowner’s lawyers fees? The landowner or Kinder Morgan?

    I own property at the intersection of Gonzales County Road 441 and Gonzales County Road 442. For the last several months satellite surveying equipment has been set up across the road from my property. From look at the Kinder Morgan map for Gonzales County, it appears that this location, is part of the pipeline route.

    Please, educate yourselves about pipelines. If you live in town, you have natural gas pipelines throughout the town, with no adverse affects. Pipelines are safe for environment and agriculture. The Pipeline company will negotiate to save trees, and normally after laying the line, will return the surface to its original condition with new dirt, native grass, etc.
    Really, you need to understand, don’t just repeat what you hear. Our family has had pipelines across their property for many years, and no adverse effects.

    According to TX Railroad Commission GIS wwweb site, Kinder Morgan already has two pipelines crossing the county. Is that so, or is one of those the “proposed” Permian Highway Pipeline, mapped by the state as a “done deal”?

    Once at the site, zoom in to Hays county, turn on “pipelines” in the interactive map’s legend. You’ll then see all of the gas and liquids pipelines crossing the county.

    The solution rises every morning. Why are we fighting a particular route of this pipeline instead of fighting to prevent it all together. ALL pipelines will fail, it is just a matter of time. Anyone who says differently is not being honest. How many 100 year old cars do you see on the road?

    I have a commercial lot for 15 years and the city dosnt let me build nothing there because of the pipeline so what can I do…can they give me money because i can’t do nothing i can’t sell because they know it has a pipe but when I bought it they didn’t told me nothing about that

    Without pipelines moving gas to markets, how are you planning to have electricity in your home or for your electric car? How about propane for your grill, or gas for your stove? You want the benefits but not the infrastructure to provide it.

    I own property in Harper Tx, about 1/4 mile form the proposed route of the Kinder Morgan pipeline. I’m sure the installation of this pipe line, will have a negative affect on my water well and many others in the area. Plus, it crosses the head of the Pedernales River in Harper Tx. The pipe line travels though many small towns and rivers, dead in the middle of texas and the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone. The Edwards Aquifer is a massive system of caves and water supplies that cover half of Texas. The Edwards Aquifer is also a Geological fault Line which is always shifting. Just, to install this pipe line, much less to have a spill, would have a negative affect on half the lakes and water supplies of texas for decades to come. (IT is a 42″ diameter pipe line traveling some 2000 miles from the Gulf Coast to the west). I not an environmentalist but this is ridiculous, and must be stopped.

    Have you ever worked on a pipe line, not. This one, is not your average pipe line, It’s 42″ in diameter, traveling some 2000 miles across some of the most environmental sensitive areas of Texas. Just to put it in, much less to have a spill, is going to mess up your water system. They are going to have to use heavy equipment and probably explovies. If you think they won’t pump oil and gasoline down it, coming off the Gulf Coast, think again.

    Becky, pipelines that run through towns are smaller distribution lines. This pipe is a transmission line that’s 42 inches in diameter. And even distribution lines do have adverse effects such as killing people or causing forced evacuations.
