Pipelines Create Jobs

Pipelines are creating thousands of good-paying jobs all across America in construction, manufacturing, professional and service industries.

  • A single pipeline project can deliver over $2 billion in salaries for workers and their families. Good-paying construction, manufacturing, transportation, and refining jobs are all dependent on pipelines. Pipeline jobs can support a middle-class income or higher, provide healthcare and give families the ability to save for the future.

  • A single major pipeline construction project is estimated to employ nearly 7,000 construction workers and provide workers and their families over $300 million in salary and benefits.
  • New pipelines spur thousands of manufacturing jobs building pipe and components. When construction is complete, the finished pipeline supplies energy and industrial feed-stocks to support thousands more additional manufacturing jobs making goods and products for decades to come.
