In Houston Pipe Line Co. v. Dwyer, 374 S.W.2d 662, 663, 7 Tex. Sup. Ct. J. 136 (Tex. 1964), the supreme court reviewed a pipeline easement that did not describe its dimensions by metes and bounds or even give a course or direction for the pipe. Dwyer, 374 S.W.2d at 663.

The supreme court held that the pipeline company's right to the easement nevertheless became fixed and certain when the company constructed the pipeline with the consent and acquiescence of the landowner. Id. at 666.
