Roofing Underlayment

That pipe is missing the roof flange.
You have 2 good options, call your hydro company get power shut off and get a proper flange on there.
Order a 2 piece split flange, and have it soldered on site.
I would go with the 2 piece, but I can solder galv.
Your un-good options involve a crap tonne of tar or caulking and will not last, and possibly not work at all.

Regarding the valley, Have you cut the tops of the caps at all? That should help it lay down, if your worried about leaking from the cut, it shouldn't if the valley shingles are installed proper. I would also cut a V out of the shingle course their going under to help it lay down. No matter what you do you will have a slight bump because of all the layers there

Roofing Underlayment

When i reached the intersecting roof with the ridge cap i cut the top of the ridge cap down the center a little bit so it would lay as flat as it can and put some tar on the split. The only flanges i've found around here are for pipes coming out of the roof somewhere in the center, but not on the edge of a roof, i know of these i've used them before, but never had a pipe on the edge of a roof. Never heard of a two piece flange i'll have to look into that, i pretty much just need half of a flange. Could i take one like they sell at home depot and cut it in half maybe a little more? Previous roofers had nothing around this pipe and the only thing holding it up was the dripedge cut around it (real smart), but now i secured it properly. Also i've never used these type of ridge cap shingles, they are doubled up. I was told thats how they come for architectural shingles.
