Landowners opposed to the construction of the Bayou Bridge pipeline have lost yet another legal fight.
The crude oil pipeline is currently under construction between Lake Charles, Louisiana and St. James Parish. It’s majority owner is Energy Transfer Partners. Earlier this summer, Energy Transfer started construction on a piece of property in the swampy Atchafalaya Basin. It had permission from most, but not all, of the several-hundred landowners.
Three landowners filed a lawsuit. They said the company was trespassing and they didn’t want it built on their land.
