II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s):

Description of Project
Scotia Gas Networks in partnership with Mutual Energy wish to extend the high pressure gas network in Northern Ireland from Portadown, to the south of Belfast, across to the West with off-takes supplying Dungannon, Coalisland, Cookstown, Magherafelt, Omagh, Enniskillen and Derrylin. In addition there will be a pipeline South from Londonderry in the North to supply Strabane.
The approximate overall length of pipelines to be laid is 100 km with 15 Pressure reduction sites at off-takes along the route. It is envisaged these pipelines will be constructed between 2016 and 2018 with the majority of the build in 2017.
Scope of Works
The Land Agent will be required to:
— Reference all land sections within the pre-defined route corridor and produce a Book of reference showing all interests and issues which must be referenced to a strip map showing the extent of the relevant sections. The book and map should be updated as necessary to ensure the information is up to date.
— Approach land owners and tenants with a view to securing an easement for the proposed route of the pipeline and ground-beds at minimum cost to SGN.
— Negotiate working widths, pipe dumps and a site accommodation area for the duration of the works.
— Produce and progress all legal documentation to formalise consent, land entry, transfer of easement rights and lease of land required for the working width. This is to include all drawings necessary for the Consent and Deed of Grant documentation at a recognised and appropriate scale.
— Approach landowners with a view to purchasing sites identified as preferred for the AGI’s including a safe permanent vehicle access to all sites.
— Negotiate, produce and progress all legal documentation to formalise consent, land entry and transfer of title including all plans to a suitable and recognised scale.
— Negotiate a working area at each site location for the duration of the construction works to allow for safe storage of materials, fabrication areas and office/messing accommodation including a temporary access suitable for construction vehicles.
— Transfer all documentation to SGN Legal Department at a time agreed with the SGN Legal Department.
— Provide Agricultural Liaison Officers to monitor all ground works and reinstatement and to agree terms, compensation payments and secure pre-entry agreements with Farmers and land owners.
— Liaise with land owners or their agent and tenants to arrange for access to the land to allow for environmental and archaeological surveys, including borehole surveys and centreline route surveys. In view of the short time periods involved this access may well be in advance of agreements to the easement negotiations being completed.
— Gain consent for hedgerow removal from land owners or their agent in line with the proposed pipeline route for removal by the end of February 2017.
— Where necessary liaise with land owners or their agent and tenants to allow for invasive archaeology surveys to be carried out in advance of the main works within the defined working width.
— Keep the SGN Legal team appraised of progress and liaise to ensure precedent is maintained in respect of SGN’s agreed rates for easement and working area remuneration structure.
— Attend regular bi-monthly project meetings and any ad-hoc meeting as deemed necessary by the Project Manager.
— Produce monthly written reports for the Project Manager on the state of all landowner negotiations and anticipated or committed costs.
— Attend all Public Meeting.
— Produce a pre-entry record of condition, photographic and written, for all areas that will be affected by the works. These records must be agreed with the landowner.
— Provide advice to the contractor on agreed restrictions or requirements for each land parcel.
— During and post completion of the main construction works liaise with land owners and tenants to ensure all parties are aware of the current programme, agreements are being adhered to and advise the Project Manager of recommended courses of action with a view to mitigating possible claims.
