O’Neill Presents CLE Program on Challenges of Pipeline Projects
Pipeline Projects: From Certification to Acquisition
January 26, 2015

In this CLE program for the American Law Institute, Sean O’Neill served as a faculty member, leading the discussion on how the recent surge in domestic oil and gas production has increased the demand for new pipelines.  As a result of this increased demand, the debate has escalated over the environmental impact and the acquisition of property rights by eminent domain.  The presentation gave participants a better understanding of the FERC certification process, landowner participation in that process, route selection, NEPA review and environmental impacts, the acquisition of property rights and the eminent domain process, the payment of just compensation and the obstacles and opposition that pipeline projects may face.
