Langan opens Ohio office to support Utica shale
ELMWOOD PARK, New Jersey -- Langan Engineering & Environmental Services has announced the opening of an office in Akron, Ohio. The new office will provide fully integrated technical services in support of the oil and gas industry focused on the Utica shale play as well as land development projects and corporate real estate portfolios throughout the state.
The Utica shale is estimated to be nearly twice the size of the Marcellus but lies deeper below the surface. The U.S. Geological Survey predicts the Utica may hold as much as 940 MMbbl of recoverable oil, 38.2 Tcf of recoverable natural gas and 208 MMbbl of recoverable NGLs.
"The exploration and production stemming from shale plays throughout the United States have resulted in tremendous opportunity for Langan in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and North Dakota. The next step for us is Ohio," said David T. Gockel, President and CEO.
Langan Senior Principal, Gerard Coscia, who has more than 25 years of experience in leading major environmental remediation projects for utilities, chemical companies, and brownfield developers, will serve as Principal-in-Charge of the office.
