Blackfin Pipeline Project 

Colorado County to Jasper County, Texas

Preparations for the construction of Whitewater Midstream, LLC’s Blackfin Pipeline are proceeding as the company plans to lay the 193-mile pipeline from rural Colorado County to Jasper County, Texas. 

Beginning in the third quarter of 2025, the pipeline will carry 3.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day across eight counties. To be able to do that, Whitewater Midstream must seize easements from private land between the pipeline’s origin and destination.  

This means that landowners with property along the pipeline channel have already received or will receive a notice in the form of a letter from Whitewater Midstream or Norfleet, Whitewater Midstream’s right-of-way acquisition company, to conduct a survey of the land and make an offer to purchase an easement for the project. 

The construction of the pipeline places property owners in a position of losing a portion of their land at a determined price or facing condemnation proceedings if they do not voluntarily give up a part of their land. If you want to learn more about how to protect yourself, landowner and attorney Dan Gattis can help you with information about fair compensation, appraisal accuracy and the negotiation process, to name a few key concerns. Gattis Law can help you know your rights.
