Unfortunately pipelines are not popular at the present time due to an uneducated belief that they are an environmental hazard and are unsafe. This was a great company to work for and I'd still be there but for the down turn in fuel prices and the anti-pipeline protests that slowed, and in some cases caused the cancellation of projects.
However I believe that pipelines are the safest mode of transportation for liquid fossil fuels. It is a complex system and requires dedication and educated employees to succeed.
Working hours are standard, overtime is not mandatory, safety is a priority. People are friendly and helpful.
