Most pipelines are welded using SMAW (shielded metal arc welding) Or commonly known as stick or AC welding. If you're going to work in heavy pipe like pipelines or associated heavy pipe used in processing plants then arc welding is what you need to know. Some experience with mig welding is usefull too. Mig could be used smaller gauge pipe systems.
