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.

  • Pipelines create jobs across the country, not just in the states where they are constructed. For example, a new pipeline in Great Plains states can create construction jobs there, manufacturing jobs in the Midwest, financial jobs on the East Coast, and transportation jobs across the nation.
  • 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.
