If you're asking if it can be done physically, just don't use a machine-driven post-hole digger without info on the pipeline depth. If you're asking if it's OK legally, probably yes on your own property but better ask the right authority (depends whether the pipes are municipal, county, or state controlled). I doubt a gate would be required.

What do you consider a "Pipeline", and who does it belong to?
Is this near your house that provides a service for you or in a farm field that simply crosses your property?
A pipe can have anything from high pressure gas to no pressure wastewater.
I don't have a pipeline or burried utility lines crossing the farm other than my own, or field drain tile, but neighbors who do have utility lines fence across them. I've never saw a gate where the utilty goes under a fence.
Be sure to call the "One Call" number probably in the front of your phone book a couple days before you dig, they'll send someone out to locate any underground lines or pipes.

Frank.

I am not excatly sure what type of product passes thru the pipeline, but Marathon Gas has plastic markers along the line. This line is a long distance one, miles long. I cant imagine anyone using the line other than some type of large complex. I called the 800 no. on the markers and talked to someone that seemed to not know anything about placing fences. He just kept saying make a one call. His concern was diging around the area which is understandable. Me installing a fence is not an issue just curious if someone might come along and make me remove it. I get the idea that it should not be a problem, just trying to make sure.
I have seen a couple of tractors come through cutting grass and never considered putting fencing up until recently.

The "one number" they and Hardwood mention normally covers all buried lines and pipes for locating them for your need. Call them for that will help protect you two ways, one cost of repair if you damage what ever is buried if not where they tell you it is and more important possible death or injury from digging into what ever is buried there. Installing a fence will require post and placing the post will be the issue, I think.

It would surprise me if you were not allowed to install a fence if across your property. If so there would have to be some legal restriction and would expect it must be on file with your county courthouse.

I'd check the abstract on your property to be sure but more than likly Marathon has an easment allowing them access to repair or maimtain above the line. There can be all sorts of contracts, easments, agreements, etc. etc. I've never saw a pipeline or any utility mow across anyone's property here. The farmer farms right over it like it wasn't there.
I'd call again asking for someone who really knows what's going on. If they mow above the line, then yes, I'd put a gate in rather than them call later demanding a gate for their access.
Frank.

Sounds like an easement to me which means you can't do anything on or over it--it's like they own it--which they do. And if you do put it up they have the right to tear it down and charge you for it. And if fact you could be prosecuted for trespassing.

There has been two major natural gas pipelines put in just south of my property. Any fences they tore down, they repaired. They even went under the interstate highway with it. The property owner still owns the property...it is just an easement. Large sheds and blacktop have been built over them too. I don't think you will have a problem constructing a fence over the pipeline. Just call diggers hotline first.

A few miles north of me is a major east/west natural gas pipeline that most all the small towns within ten or fifteen miles feed from. The only place I've seen a gate is where there is some kind of I suppose shut off valves where the pipe comes above ground and a little building next to it. I don't know how many miles apart those are but they are always right next to the road and heavily fenced in. From there on across the rest of the fields the farmers have farmed across it since it's been there, probably 25 years.
One of my wife's younger cousins used to work for a power company that had the big steel towers that go long distance with real heavy electric lines. They cross lots of farms along the way. His job was to walk the path of the lines every summer checking the towers. He said they had easments to drive thru a crop under the lines to repair in an emergency but otherwise would wait till the crop was harvested for routine repairs.
Frank.

On with the fence. We are new to new to owning land and would like some input about puting in wire fencing. We have 35 acres, approx 2000 feet of which run along a road that is not heavly traveled. That encourages people to dump, cut fire wood and just generally be where we dont want anyone. Fencing along the road is our main interest and later on maybe the other three sides. No animals to keep in yet. First question is where do we look for posts other than the big box stores? Can we use landscape timbers for posts, they are cheeper than round fence posts by a buck each. How about the metal t-bars, why not use them, cost is about same as round post yet seem to be easier installation. We have a tractor and a post hole digger attachment. Any online reference would be appreciated. Hopefull that is enough information to get this post started.
