A major problem with underground natural gas storage is the absence of fair compensation to landowners for underground natural gas storage on private property. The federal government, FERC, state governments, and courts have conspired with gas and pipeline companies to illegally take over private property by imminent domain and illegal perpetual leases for underground storage.

Gas and pipeline companies make $Millions$ annually with ZERO or minimal compensation to private landowners. Courts have illegally used the wrong paradigm, diminution of surface land value, to determine compensation. The correct paradigm is the value of these scarce underground caverns to gas and pipeline companies.

There are only 415 of these scarce underground resources in the entire USA, as such, these are extremely valuable resources OWNED BY PRIVATE LANDOWNERS. This violation of the 5th amendment rights of private landowners and Native Americans needs to be reversed NOW!!
Gas and pipeline companies must be forced to retroactively fairly compensate landowners for underground natural gas storage. Gas and pipeline corporations are sharecroppers that aren't sharing. For more information see my linkedin group "Fair Compensation for Underground Natural Gas Storage."
