        You didn't get any answers so......

        That's a really broad question. There are a ton of procedures used in the differing parts of mainline construction so any accurate answer would be very long.
        But a brief oversimplification would be something like this, downhill (not downhand) stick bead w/5P+ or 6P+ (usually 5/32'), HP, fill & cap w/70+ (3/16") or 8P+ (5mm).
        Puddle cap on pipe up to .500W, 2 or 3 bead cap on heavier wall.
        That covers the majority of pipe gang, firing line and tie-in manual welding.
        Sleeves & TOL's normally would call for a 5P+/6P+ bead/HP and LoHi out.

        The oddball spread will run flux core F/C in the firing line. Or downhill LoHi (LH-D80 or 90 or 100).

        That's not much help, but the predominant skill on mainline construction is 5P+, 6P+, 70+, 8P+ downhill stick. Those skills are basic and money. Others are a major plus.

        This applies to transmission line construction in the United States, other countries are quite different.
