Learn ways to use analysis and due diligence to prevent protests or project opposition.

With the ever-present need for reliable pipeline, electric, water, sewer, fiber optic, and other assets to supply the nations critical infrastructure needs, there is a correlating need to think beyond engineering for successful project execution. Many of these projects see increasing opposition from landowners, other stakeholders, environmentalists and other interested parties, with goals of down-sizing, relocating, or stopping a project, decreasing efficiency in project planning and execution, while raising the costs of construction. While there is no single solution to prevent protests or project opposition, careful analysis and due diligence in the early stages of project planning as to stakeholder issues, land analysis, regional issues and route selection can help mitigate, if not eliminate, early missteps that can derail even the best project. This topic will focus on the soft sciences of land rights analysis, regional stakeholder values, project naming, opposition research, and negotiation strategies, and address route selection beyond geology, engineering and design considerations.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to recognize regulatory application drafting for the sections addressing the ‘soft skills' of route analysis.
  • You will be able to discuss potential solutions for accessing already-congested land corridors, as well as ways to forge new paths through greenfields and solicit input and buy-in from regional stakeholders.
  • You will be able to explain the importance of project messaging and outreach beyond what may be required by regulatory bodies, as well as ways to enhance the message.
  • You will be able to review the importance of analyzing the complexities of oil and gas, utility, and critical infrastructure project siting.
