Precision Pipeline and Enbridge Energy Safety Meeting

Feature 5 | Selection of Five Images From my Latest Oil and Gas Pipeline Shoot

This Feature 5 highlights work that I did for the company, Precision Pipeline. Precision Pipeline is a contractor that handles pipeline construction and maintenance for the oil and gas energy sector. They leverage pipeline work across the nation and are headquartered centrally in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I traveled to three pipeline job sites to capture the different types of work they needed.

  • Michigan | Enbridge Energy | 20″, 36″ Pipe | Crude Oil Mainline Replacement
  • New York | Kinder Morgan | 30″ Pipe | Natural Gas Expansion Line
  • Pennsylvania | Access Midstream | 8″, 12″, 16″, 20″ | Natural Gas Gathering Line

These pipeline projects that I visited were all very unique. The first site in Michigan was a crude oil pipeline replacement project. The job was with Enbridge Energy on the Line 6B Replacement. Replacement means that there is already a pipeline at the location and they are installing new pipe along the same route. This area was fairly level, but they did have to tunnel bore pipe in many places due to roadways and other obstacles. The second job I worked at was a natural gas extension south of Buffalo, New York. This line went through a mix of rural farmland with fairly steep and hilly terrain; this was part of the Niagara Project. The last job sites I traveled to were in Pennsylvania and are in the Marcellus Shale Formation. This project included installing natural gas gathering lines from multiple wellheads to the mainline which is located across a very mountainous region of northern Pennsylvania. This job was a mix of many short pipeline runs across a large area. It was a sight to be seen as I observed all of the pipeliner crews working in complete unison as they swiftly operated along the line at all three sites.

“Precision Pipeline aims to not only raise the bar in safety but to set the new standard for the industry. We have dramatically changed our safety culture by adopting a “100% committed to 0” policy on incidents and unsafe behaviors.” – Precision Pipeline

These images will be used by Precision Pipeline for years to come for various purposes within their company. High quality and unique photography is key to standing out from your competition, as can be seen by their new website. They have also used this photography for company newsletters, marketing, and their new safety campaign, 100% committed to 0. Industrial photography is just one way to make a statement about your company, your employees, and what you do best.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
