Pipeline welding jobs are usually partaken in because welded pipes play an essential part in the completion of many industrialized projects. Ever wondered what it is like to partake in these types of jobs, and what kind of living you can achieve? We are going to cover what pipe welding jobs entail and how much of a living you can expect from it.

Pipeline welding jobs require intense dedication, and focus when it comes to completing the task at hand. This isn't a job for slouches, and the pipes you weld are usually evaluated and inspected, to ensure that the work you do, is of high quality.

There are many locations in which people partake in pipeline welding jobs. Oil refineries, chemical plants, power plants, tunnels, and in a variety of outdoor environments are just a few examples. Also, as a pipe welder, you will be exposed to varying weather conditions while you work in the field. These weather conditions range from cool, to very harsh in extreme cases. To top it off, you will usually be working for many hours at a time.

Welders partake in several processes to ensure that the metals are merged. Certain processes, are better suited to certain types of jobs than others would be. When it comes to pipeline welding jobs, most welders favor the shielded metal-arc welding (stick welding) process, and the gas tungsten arc welding (tungsten inert gas or "tig" welding) process for their pipe joining purposes.

You also have what is referred to as positions with regard to pipe welding. You will only be allowed to weld in the positions, and to the specifications in which you are certified to weld. The positions in pipe welding, refer to the positions of the pipe. There are four positions and these are 1G, 2G, 5G and 6G. There is no 3G and 4G position in pipeline welding.

The 1G position is known as the horizontal rolled position, in which the pipe is horizontal and rolled. In the 2G position, the pipe is placed vertically and welding is done horizontally. The 5G position is known as the horizontal fixed position, in which the pipe is horizontal, but it isn't turned or rolled during operation like the 1G pipe position. The 6G position has the pipe set up on a fixed (can't be rolled or moved during welding operation) 45 degree incline.

With regard to wages or salaries in pipeline welding jobs, being certified in the 6G position will yield maximum returns. Significantly more than being only certified in the other positions. This is because the 6G position is the most difficult of the four, and has you welding in all positions. Due to this, being certified in 6G, also qualifies you to weld pipes in 1G, 2G, and 5G. Being very active in pipeline welding jobs, can put you on the brink of a six figure annual income, and in many cases achieve it.

As you can tell, there is a lot of work involved when you partake in pipeline welding jobs. It is not a lazy man's job. Is it worth it? Well, once you are a hard worker, you act professional (like most jobs, you will encounter your fair share of hostile co-workers) no matter what, and your welds are at high enough quality to get through the evaluation process, you should have a bright future welding pipelines. Why not give it a go and try to improve your standard of living?
