The Act requires petroleum pipeline companies to notify property owners of their rights before initiating eminent domain proceedings. The petroleum pipeline companies also must comply with a two-step application and review process. The Act contains provisions for public notices and hearings. Landowners must be compensated by the petroleum pipeline companies for any damages caused by surveying activities, property taken through the eminent domain proceeding, and unreasonable impacts of the property of the landowner that is not acquired by eminent domain.
