15/10/2009 - When I first heard a friend, Dave, mention “PIPA” the first image that entered my mind was that of a pipeline. Why, you might rightfully ask? Well since my heritage is Italian this word for me had a totally different imagery that it might have for others who are non Italian. In English the Italian word “pipa” is translated as “pipe” and it is the skillful placement of this pipe that makes up a dedicated “pipeline” that is used to transport commodities, most often oil. In the oil industry “pipeline “ operators are a specialized, highly qualified, a unique group of entrepreneurs and professionals that are indispensable for getting oil ( often called black gold ) to market.
