It's been brought up on the news in the Richmond area but there doesn't seem to be any complaints.

If you don't own your mineral rights, does that mean a company can frack on your property if they own them?
Do most people own their mineral rights in VA?

Dont reckon everybody thinks about mineral rights when buying land. I would think most folks do own mineral rights. This pipe line isnt about fracking, which to me is real bad.But its about the power company clear cutting a 100 foot wide area and sinking a pipe in the ground 8 feet deep.When the power company gets control of the land the pipe is going thru they can do whatever they want.A person can not build anything on the land the pipe is under.The company can come on the land anytime to spray herbicide or whatever else it might feel it needs to do.Theres alot of concern with property rights.The pipe will come into Va from WV in Highland county,cross Augusta,Nelson,Buckingham and counties South on its way to NorthCarolina.It hooks up with a pipe that will be going to Tidewater. There have been explosions in West Virginia,California and just recently in Texas from these kinds of pipelines.The pipes are presurized I reckon to get the gas moving.Im not an expert on the technology of the pipeline.Its just some of the information I was give.They will plow over the Blue Ridge thru the George Washington National Forest and the Jefferson.The property rights issue has brung folks politically on the right and left together to oppose this.Tourism is a big thing in these parts.This pipeline is not going help that. Theres alot of areas it could effect.The environment,the economy,the landscape and individual property rights.The power company cancelled coming to any of the meetings that have happened in the counties after saying they would be at some of them.

Yikes !!^^^

I will have to pay more attention to this. Please keep us informed on any actions we can take.

Am still wondering about mineral rights, as in SD if they didn't own them, they could just frack away anywhere on your land.
Would it be on your deed if you own the mineral rights to,your land?

Hate to tell y'all, it's a done deal. The ROW has already been cleared on the MD side of the Potomac and most of the pipe is down. The Dominion plant here in Calvert County is beginning to expand to accept the gas, which is slated for export.

Not suppose to happen till 2018. The pipe coming thru Va is coming directly from WV thru Pocahontas County WV. Dominion hasnt started surveying land for the pipe yet. This line dont have anything to do with Maryland.
