Careers in Pipeline Construction

These hard-working people are responsible for building the pipeline. Pipeline Construction Workers work for the contractor and consist of skilled and unskilled workers.



Inspectors observe and document construction progress and accept or reject the work. Inspectors write daily reports on the contractor’s progress.


Office Administration

No pipeline project could ever be completed without office personnel. There are many documents involved in a pipeline construction project. All documents must be reviewed, managed, and filed so that regulatory agencies can find them in an audit.

In order to keep up with growing energy demands, new pipelines are constantly being built all over the country.
