STEELE CITY, Nebraska (Reuters) - In the heated debate over whether to build the Keystone XL pipeline, the energy industry and lawmakers have predicted that the project could unleash an economic bonanza in the Midwest, and provide jobs for up to a half-million people. Kansas pipeline worker Jeremy Rippe knows better. "Short term, there will be jobs for everyone around here. Then, not many at all," said Rippe, who helps maintain a gas pipeline on the Nebraska-Kansas border.

However, don't you think people would have liked to have one of those great paying jobs for 5 or so years while it was being built? Doesn't matter though, Biden has recommended they all learn code and become programmers.

What about all the current jobs the pipeline would cost? The loss of jobs in the railroads and trucking?

Omg get off the computer and go talk to someone in the industry

The boom in oil production had nothing whatsoever to do with Donald Trump. The facts are quite clear.

On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed legislation into law that repeals the 40-year-old U.S. ban on crude oil exports. Calls to lift the crude export ban became more frequent after U.S. supplies increased dramatically—driven by technological advances in the drilling and extraction of “tight oil” (generally light sweet crude). These advances led to a domestic production “boom,” particularly in Texas (Eagle Ford and Permian Basin formations) and North Dakota (Bakken formation). In fact, the Energy Information Administration (“EIA”) reported that U.S. crude production (including lease condensate) rose from 5.6 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2011 to 8.7 million b/d in 2014. EIA’s August Short-Term Energy Outlook forecasted that production in 2015 would be as high as 9.4 million b/d, with a dip to 9.0 million b/d in 2016 because of low oil prices.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I worked in the industry before becoming a truck driver, escorting sand cans on/off fracing sites.

Ironically, it will increase the carbon footprint to bring the oil into the US via other means than pipe to such an extent it cancels out killing Keystone.

But will in fact save jobs in the trucking industry.

Biden didn't stop the pipeline for enviromental reasons, he did it to help his pals in the railroad industry.

Piplines are like driverless trucks. They ultimately take away jobs.

Dude, the trucking industry is short drivers now. Although, with Biden giving amnesty to millions of illegal aliens that will soon be a thing of the past.

I hear ya on that. It's another issue , the illegals. I don't see the merits in granting them amnesty at this time.

Like all presidental and government decisions, I consider them point by point and believe the individual issue is far more relevant than the person proposing them.

Pilot car driver. I made $75,000 a year driving a F150. Unlike out West, in the East pilot cars are used to escort oil field traffic to and from the remote locations where many well sites are. Winding state roads, gravel county roads are quite common in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. I attended daily saftey meetings with all the personel that was on a particular well site. I had working relations with everyone on the pads from the grunts to the company man.

I also worked as a sand coordinator where it was my job to dispatch sand trucks, spot them while they backed into the sand kings or silos, and hooked up the hoses so they could unload.

I did this from 2012 to 2017 until I was laid off. The fracing boom had ended as supplies were far greater than demand.

**** lol you made more than I did hauling water in. I did that from 2017 til this year. My company went under and I decided to come back OTR.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

It was a lot of hours, a lot. I worked min14 hours a day, 6 days a week. I worked 27 out of 28 days three different times. It was insanely busy.

In 2013 they (fracing companies) were paying the sand trucks $1,500 a load! Guys getting 3,4, and even 5 loads a day depending on how far from the pad the sand was. There were owner operators that cleared over $200,000 that year as well as in 2014.

Yes, that's cleared--after all expenses, over $200,000 in one year, with one truck!

We used to say about the middle east- we don't need their oil, we need their sand.

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.
