See pipeline construction and its latest technology. Both hand welding and auto welding is done on huge pipes used to transport energy resources. Multiple welding processes are used to join pipe for long term use. Pipelaying is highly technical today and standards are high.

Rig Employment


Instrumental only video, with shots of job openings. Video description asks if you’d like to earn $250-400 per day. Video is to promote the website rigemployment.com. I particularly enjoy the honest description that the work is hard, but pay is good. Countless positions are available and many are entry level. Most require at least two weeks to a month away from home. If you’re willing to get dirty and work hard, you can make some very good money as a welder.
