Land Development

There is widespread scientific support for using renewable energy, particularly solar and wind. These systems provide electricity without giving rise to any carbon dioxide emissions. Harnessing these for electricity depends on the cost and efficiency of the technology, which is constantly improving, thus reducing costs per peak kilowatt, and per kWh at the source.

Utilizing electricity from solar and wind in a grid becomes problematic at high levels for complex, yet well-demonstrated reasons: supply does not correspond with demand.

Back-up generating capacity is required due to the intermittent nature of solar and wind. System costs escalate with increasing proportion of variable renewables.

Policy settings to support renewables are generally required to confer priority in grid systems and also subsidize them, and some 50 countries have these provisions.

Utilizing solar and wind-generated electricity in a stand-alone system requires corresponding battery or other storage capacity.

The future possibility of large-scale use of hydrogen to transport fuel increases the potential for both renewables and base-load electricity supply.

Bridgelink Engineering brings together community, landowners, and resources to develop world class projects to reduce the carbon footprint. Bridgelink has an outstanding team to evaluate land, use environmental constraints, and involve the community to make renewable projects a reality.

Trent has over 12 years of experience covering all aspects of land work, with a primary focus on surface land. Trent graduated from Tarleton State University with a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Services and Development.

Trent’s landman career began right out of college working for EOG in the Barnett Shale as a right-of-way agent. From there Trent worked for multiple brokerages securing acreage for the purpose of exploration and the production of minerals. In 2011 Trent went to work for ConocoPhillips as a Contract Landman in the Eagle Ford Shale. There Trent was responsible for negotiating, drafting, and interpreting surface land contacts to secure any necessary surface rights needed for any and all types of infrastructure, including access roads, well locations, central facilities, offices, valve site locations, and pipelines.

In 2012 ConocoPhillips offered Trent an inhouse position as a Surface Landman. During this time Trent received multiple awards, including two Special Recognition Awards for outstanding work with landowners with HSE concerns, a Difference Maker Award for performance at high level, managing multiple projects while coordinating teamwork projects on behalf of the company.

Trent also received a Spirit Award for integrity creating community advocates. Throughout Trent’s career he has been responsible for assets in Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming, making him well-rounded asset for any growing company. Trent brings exceptional communication and negotiating skills combined with demonstrated skills in all facets of land work. His enthusiasm and attention to detail makes him a solid team member as well as being able to work effectively in an autonomous role.

Trent is a firm believer that there are way too many variables to ever master the art of the landman, “all you can do is live, learn, and continue to grow your knowledge of the land business every day”.
