In the articles “Texas Landowners Pivot to ESA to Block 2 Bcf/d Permian Highway” and “Kinder Morgan Eyes Late September Start-Up for Permian Pipe; Elba LNG Expected Online Soon,” NGI incorrectly stated that the Railroad Commission of Texas allows pipeline operators to determine the route and acquire land without a landowner’s consent. The state law is enacted by the Texas Legislature. Additionally, the Railroad Commission has no authority over the routing or siting of intrastate or interstate pipelines. The pipeline route is determined by the pipeline’s owner/operator. NGI regrets the error.
