Hah, excellent. I’ve added it here (which is supposed to be satire)
Pipelines leak? Really I’m shocked to hear this.
Duct tape comes in handy here. Elizabeth Burns showed ExxoMobil using it for a produced water pipeline leak “fix”.
A 20 inch gas transmission pipeline failure in WV:
Why the TCEQ doesn’t even concern it self with methane that is emitted to the air. Any amount methane is OK with them.
Most utilities & pipelines are far from broke. yet, life safety is at risk here.

El Paso Gas Pipeline Controller Interview
Posted Jan 18, 2010
Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Houston, TX Aug 2008 – Reviewed Jan 18, 2010
Interview Details – The department manager looked at the resume I sent in with my application and called and asked me to come in for an interview. I went in prepared to sell myself. I had a portfolio and everything. None of it was ever looked at. I was never asked a single question outside of “what do you think of our gym?” I was told what the job was, had the schedule explained to me, met some people around the office, and went home. That night I was offered the job. So were 3 other people. There is a 80% turnover rate in the department…
Note that pipeline controllers have caused, or made worse, many pipeline accidents, by errors made! Also very life critical.

“These must be the quality jobs the natural gas industry keeps talking about.”
