Gas leak detection job fair

by TXsharon on December 9, 2012

in Explosions, Pipelines

Detecting gas leaks could mean life or death. This important position, leak survey technician, pays $12/hour. I think we should apply.

The ideal candidate should meet the following requirements:

  1. Live within Weatherford, Mineral Wells, Graham and surrounding areas.

Duct tape comes in handy here. Elizabeth Burns showed ExxoMobil using it for a produced water pipeline leak “fix”.

Why the TCEQ doesn’t even concern it self with methane that is emitted to the air. Any amount methane is OK with them.

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.

It’s still not clear to me: Do these positions include life insurance?
Severance perhaps?
