Thousands of Solutions to the Gulf Coast Oil & Gas Industry Manpower Shortage
The surge of oil and gas production along America’s Gulf Coast has also created a manpower shortage. Skilled millwrights to install and maintain mechanical operations critical to this industry’s success are in high demand–but in low numbers.
The United Brotherhood of Carpenters anticipated this problem, and began planning and prepping to alleviate this current manpower shortage years ago. We have thousands of highly skilled, credentialed, professional millwrights ready to deploy. Each learned from the same standardized curriculum, so that travelers are just as skilled as local millwrights.
UBC Millwrights understand that their job is to keep a worksite operating smoothly and safely. They are trained, tested, and credentialed for work in oil refineries, chemical plants, gas pipelines, natural gas processing units and more.
Technical skills are honed and ready for exploration, development, drilling, production, and decommissioning projects. We are prepared to expertly install, construct, repair and maintain multi-million-dollar production and refinery equipment, such as stationary and industrial engines, compressors, and pumps.
Our reputation for excellence includes rigging and signaling, welding, alignment, and fabrications.
