This is a rather straightforward way to kill a pipeline - or at least a pipeline route. . . 

Drive the cost thru the roof. 

Which starts with forcing the pipeline company to condemn (not buy) every foot of the ROW

On average, a condemnation costs (the pipeline company) 78% on average more than an outright acquisition. 

(A good negotiator could get that up to 200%. Why settle for "average" ?) 

Per a peer reviewed study that did a cost comparison of the two methods of acquisition 

If they think their ROW costs are going to go up 100%, they might go somewhere else.
