    So I'm sitting here with a glass of vodka in front of me, chattting with y'all. However, in the back of my head, there is a little Gas Co. devil antagonizing me with calls of "You have to be at the blowout by 6:00 AM".

    But it's much more fun to be here with my brotthers than responsing to a high pressure blowout at 6 in the morning.

    Sorry to whine, but it looks like this weekend is gonna be a busy one......:frown1:

    Paul,
    what do you have to do when a pipeline blows out? Dig it out to repair?

    Nope, this is a much bigger deal. The pipeline in question is running at about 650 PSI!!!!

    What we're doing is shutting down a transfer station and transferrring the feed from another station while the pipeliners run about 600 meters of new pipeline. My job is to watch/adjust feed pressures at the "new" station" in the meantime. Unfortunately, this is a 24 hour-a -day job. I might be gone for a while, Of course, $55 an hour makes it worth it, eh???!!!!:woot: :woot:
