2,500+ Pipeline Construction Jobs: Kinder Morgan’s Permian Highway Pipeline Underway
What is the Permian Highway Pipeline (PHP) Project Hiring for:
With stakes in the ground & pipe stacked in yards, construction is set to begin on Kinder Morgan’s Permian Highway Pipeline. According to estimates, the new pipeline will directly generate about 2,500 various local pipeline construction jobs along with 18 full-time jobs once the project is complete.
Oilfield Job Shop contacted a Kinder Morgan representative about the positions. The response from Kinder Morgan was as follows:
“The 2,500 construction jobs are individuals hired by Kinder Morgan contractors. These will not be employees of Kinder Morgan. There is no one set way to apply for these jobs. Every contractor is different on how they recruit and post available positions…as for the 18 full time jobs, these will be Kinder Morgan employees and the positions will be posted on the Kinder Morgan website. The jobs will be spread out from Waha, TX to Sheridan, TX and some may even be in Houston, TX.”
