ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio -- A gas drilling support company has opened a new satellite office in Belmont County.
Environmental Service Laboratories said on Monday that its St. Clairsville office will strengthen the company's ability to support current and future exploration into Ohio's burgeoning Utica Shale. The company said the new location on U.S. Route 40 will initially operate as a service center to support ESL's existing Ohio clients.
COO Michael Moyer said that the St. Clairsville office will also better position the company to serve new natural gas and municipal clientele in southeastern Ohio.
Pennsylvania-based ESL specializes in pre-drilling water surveys, wastewater analysis, soil/cuttings analysis and spill support.
