Pipelines

Fox attorneys have represented numerous clients developing downstream natural gas pipelines both to provide utility services to new areas and new customers and to connect to new sources of supply. 

These projects require right-of-way acquisition, eminent domain proceedings when necessary, and complex construction contracts, as well as compliance with FERC, state commission certification, and PHMSA safety regulations – all areas in which we have considerable experience.

We have negotiated joint venture and shared use agreements among multiple pipeline owners/investors, and have advised both end users and local distribution companies on natural gas marketing arrangements, prepaid gas financing transactions, and rate design/tariff issues.
