Frequently Asked Questions

We know you have questions, and they are probably a lot like the questions other landowners are asking. So, we have compiled some of those Frequently Asked Questions to help you understand more about the Red Oak system.

Q: Can I still use my property after a pipeline is built?

A: Each pipeline project will be buried underground for nearly the entire length and will have limited surface impact. Once construction is complete, our teams will work with you to restore the work area to as near its original condition as possible.

Farmers can still use the land to grow various crops, and ranchers can still use the land for grazing. The land can also be used for a variety of recreational purposes. However, because we need to access our pipelines for occasional maintenance, the right of way must remain clear of trees and permanent structures. Before digging or starting any new projects, please call 811 so we, and other utilities, can verify where pipelines and other infrastructure are located on your property.

Q: How long will you be working on my property?

A: The actual length of time we will be on your property largely depends on the amount of pipe we need to install. Our teams will work hard to complete construction and clean-up in a timely manner and in a way that limits potential disruptions. Throughout the process, we will be there for you to help you with issues that may come up. As we get closer to construction, we’ll be in touch with more information.

Q: How deep will these pipelines be buried?

A: The top of our pipeline will be buried at least three feet below the surface. In many places the pipeline will be buried to a lower depth below the surface to further reduce risk of potential third-party damage.

Q: Will the pipeline on my property be safe?

A: We are committed to building pipelines that are safe and reliable. From using new pipe and monitoring the system 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to aerial surveillance and X-ray pipe examination, we take great strides to make sure the pipeline is safe for you, your family and your property. Learn more HERE about the safety measures that will be in place.

Q: Why do we need the pipeline?

A: Pipelines are the safest ways to move oil to the areas where it is refined into everyday products we use and rely on. Pipelines are an integral part of our local economies and help to create jobs and tax revenue for your counties.
