Bluelight Report - July 2017

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is a great time to be a pipeliner in Local 798. With over two million man hours worked this year, I would say that the work season is off to a fantastic start. The great news is that the work doesn’t appear to show signs of slowing down anytime soon. After seeing a record-breaking number of man hours worked in April, I predict that this will be a trend for the coming months as well. With that in mind, we must do our best to fulfill our obligation to our fair contractors. To fulfill our end of the bargain, we have nearly exhausted the Out-of-Work Lists and have heavily utilized the application list. In doing so, we have taken in many new members this year and will continue to do that to man the work. I ask that our long-time members welcome these new Brothers and Sisters to our membership and set the bar high for what it truly means to be a Local 798 member.

The proposed 96-mile feed gas pipeline would deliver to the facility an annual average of 4 Bcfd of natural gas. The project, which expects to begin construction in 2018, includes 13 interconnects and requires the construction of three new compressor stations.
