Abstract: PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION in North America might be in the doldrums, but the future is looking much brighter.

For almost 40 years, Waschuk Pipelines, based in Red Deer, Alberta, has been putting steel in the ground. Wes Waschuk, president of the family-owned company, summarizes the North American pipeline construction sectors current economic outlook. Theres a lot of work right now on small-diameter pipe, but its quite competitive. Weve got a job building 182-km of 10-in line that will keep the bankers away from the door for three or four months. But the market for large-diameter pipe is not good at all. When the Alliance pipeline was going, we had 800 people at the peak: for the last three-and-a-half years, weve had 15 people. Waschuk glances out the window at the backhoes and bulldozers rusting in his yard. Weve got 33 acres full of equipment thats been sitting idle for three-and-a-half years.
