Bayou Bridge Pipeline
A Baton Rouge judge is expected to rule on allowing continuation of the construction of the Bayou Bridge pipeline.

It appears that an alliance is forming between two unlikely groups of landowners who are opposed to private-for-profit companies abuse of the power of eminent domain and environmentalists.

They can't stop it. The project is already started and was reviewed and permitted by the corp of engineers already. The corp is not going to cave to environmentalist and go back and say they should not have permitted the project.

The part I don't get is how do people not realized that there is lots of pipelines already running through the basin. Its not like this hasn't been done before.

It won't be stopped. Most of the line runs along existing pipelines, power lines and roads. The permits are issued.

Forget that. A woman argued with me over the detriment it would have to our wetlands and how Lafayette would one day be the coast because of this.

Environmentalists are oblivious to the truth.

Hell, many people think that they are destroying hundreds of acres of cypress swamp because the permit says "forested wetland". The Corps considers a flooded tallow thicket a "forested wetland", and that is what most of those "forested wetland" impacts are. The pipeline is going to follow an existing right-of-way through the majority of the basin.

No oil company in their right mind is going to clear forested wetlands when they can use an existing ROW.

re: Bayou Bridge Pipeline
Correct. Usually existing right of way is used as much as possible to help with cost, and damage prevention. When new right of way is cleared, it is only because there was no other choice. When this happens the company is responsible for replanting trees that were eliminated. When crossing waterways, a HDD (horizontal directional drill) is the preferred method and usually mandated by the core. The drills can average 30-80 feet deep and there is almost zero impact environmentally.
DOT regulations of pigging, corrosion prevention, and monitoring make the pipelines far safer than the plants supplying the product.
Our line runs under an Entergy transmission corridor so very little right of way was ever cleared. The downside is the AC stray current picked up but we mitigate that as well.

Pretty sure this runs acoss the bayou a few hundred yards north of my camp in Pigeon. If I'm right, they have been out there working the pipeline for a few months now. Constantly hear airboats going up and down and there have been crews at the pump station on the hwy daily.

If it has FERC approval, it's a done deal.
