Southwest Pipe Trades Association

Pipeline operation workers are the people who connect America. Whether you work in pipeline repair, oil and natural gas pipeline distribution, or mainline repair, you can be confident that you’re doing more than earning money and working toward a lasting career—you’re providing safe, reliable service that brings businesses together in a way that few else can.

Pipelines are America’s backbone— SWPTA-affiliated unions ensure that all materials are transported safely (pipeline distribution is a safer mode of transport than rails, ships, and tanker trucks). For however many miles of pipeline there are across North America, teachers, families, and honest, hardworking citizens count on SWPTA workers for dependable, lasting service that stands the test of time.

Pipeline Repair

  • Outdated, corroded pipelines can result in malfunctioning pipes, increasing safety risks and disrupting cost-effective transportation.
  • SWPTA’s expert contractors rehabilitate the system in place for safe, efficient, and cost-effective transport.

Mainline Repair

  • Over three million miles of mainland pipeline are used to transport petroleum products across North America every year.
  • Our unions provide up-to-date, environmentally-friendly solutions for mainland repair.
  • It takes 750 tanker trucks loading and unloading every two minutes of every day to replicate a small pipeline’s results—for the most efficient solution possible; it’s up to SWPTA contractors to deliver premium pipeline control solutions.

Oil and Natural Gas Distribution

  • Oil and gas distribution is essential for the functionality of power-generation for:
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Homes
  • Refineries
  • Factories
  • Every day, the need for natural gas distribution increases throughout Canada and the United States—there’s never been a better time to begin work as a skilled contractor.

If you want to work in an industry that improves the economy, embraces technological advancements in the field, and reduces our dependence on foreign contracting, work with contractors who care. Pipeline operators know what direction they want our country to head in—join them, build toward a better tomorrow, today.
