Well, well, well...
With all of the news nowadays about oil and gas
development in Ohio, one tends to forget that the industry
has forged a long history within the Buckeye State. As a
matter of fact, this year marks the bicentennial of the first
oil well drilled in North America just outside of Caldwell.
The discovery of crude oil by Silas Thorla and Robert McKee
set off a chain of events in Ohio that led to crude oil and
natural gas production playing a key role in Ohio’s
industrial development and economic advancement.
The year was 1814 and the men operated a salt works. One
day they noticed deer licking a spot on the earth, which
denotes a presence of salt brine, and the duo set out to drill
a well. Thorla and McKee drilled roughly 475 feet
underground on that land in Olive Township and lined the
opening with a hollow sycamore log.
Reports stated the men cursed when a black liquid
appeared and oozed into the pit. There was salt brine, but
it had been fouled with oil that was considered useless at
the time. Not wanting to spend further time digging, they
opted to find a use for the dirty oil.
Some of the men’s neighbors tasted the liquid and believed
it would be suitable as medicine. The liquid was poured into
bottles and sold as “Seneca Oil,” a cure-all for rheumatism,
cuts and other maladies, while the remaining brine was
boiled down and the salt removed for other uses.
The original Thorla-McKee Well was damaged during the
formation of Ohio 78, but an historic marker stands in a
park at the junction of the Ohio 78 and Ohio 564 describing
that serendipitous moment in time. A second well the men
dug in 1816 continues to bubble up with small amounts of
oil, gas and saltwater and serves as a year-round tourist

Questions and answers
An exclusive interview with Oleg Tolmachev,
VP, Drilling & Completions for Eclipse Resources
Oleg Tolmachev has served as Vice President,
Drilling & Completions for Eclipse Resources since
February 2013. Prior to joining Eclipse Resources,
Tolmachev served as the Senior Asset Manager,
Utica Shale with Chesapeake Energy om April
2011 to February 2013, where he was responsible for
leading an asset team comprised of land, geology,
drilling, resource development and operations for
Chesapeake Energy’s Utica Shale projects in Ohio.
Prior to joining Chesapeake Energy, Tolmachev held
the position of Group Lead Completions, Mid-Continent Business Unit at
EnCana Oil and Gas (USA) Inc., om August 2008 to 2011, where he
managed well completions and intervention operations in its Barnett Shale,
Deep Bossier and East Texas Haynesville Shale business units.
Tolmachev received his Bachelors of Science degree in Petroleum Engineering
om the University of Oklahoma.
Pipeline Connections: Both Shell and BP
announced they are suspending drilling
operations in the Utica due to poor well
performance, however, many smaller
companies are seeing success. Why do you
think some larger companies are having
Oleg Tolmachey: Many major operators were not nimble or
aggressive enough to move quickly on core acreage. Once they
picked up tier 2 or 3 acreage in the Utica shale, the cost of
operations (which is higher for the majors) compounded the
overall marginal economics.
Are there any differences in drilling in the Utica shale
formation as compared to other shale formations such
as Marcellus?
One of the major differences is that the Utica shale has a higher degree of rock
stability and can therefore be drilled more under-balanced than the Marcellus.
Does the Utica shale present different challenges when
drilling from county to county?
e challenges arise more so in the vertical section of the wellbore, such as:
hole stability issues, loss circulation zones, H2S presence, etc. ose challenges
can vary significantly not only from county to county but from well pad to
well pad.
Many energy companies seem to employ drilling
contractors to drill and complete wells. What’s the
advantage over having a company operated drilling
Better control over equipment quality and availability.
16 Pipeline Connections | SUMMER 2014
Typically, how long does it take to drill a well, and how
long to completion?
Drilling typically takes 18 to 30 days from the well spud to rig release.
Completion cycle takes about 4 weeks for a single well pad and more on multiwell pads
What are the basic phases of a well’s life cycle?
Pad construction, drilling, completions, production, plugging and
There’s been news of companies drilling longer
laterals. What’s the advantage in this?
Capturing cheaper reserves, mitigating complicated surface topography, and
improving production.
Some companies are drilling both Marcellus and Utica
wells from the same pad. Do you see this as a trend
that will continue in eastern Ohio?
Yes, where the dual stacked plays are commercial.
How many wells does Eclipse plan to drill this year?
Approximately 60 through rig release.
The Utica shale formation is said to be rich in natural
gas liquids as opposed to ‘dry gas’. Is there an
advantage to drilling for this product?
e Utica shale has significant variability in natural gas content depending on
hydrocarbon maturity. e “Wet Gas” portion of the Utica has better
economics due to the ability to recover and sell oil and natural gas liquids in
addition to dry gas.
Compared to two years ago how different is the
approach to drilling a Utica shale well changed?
Recent advances in horizontal drilling technology have allowed companies to
cut drilling time two-fold. Improvements in completion techniques are
producing favorable results on initial production rates, as well.
How significant will further advancements in
technology, methods and even mapping of the earth
below advance over the next few years and what effect
could that have?
We will continue to fine tune our completion techniques to more effectively
recover hydrocarbons at surface.
Steep decline rates seems to be a knock on shale wells,
describe what you’re seeing in the field, and is that
generality accurate?
Most shale wells generally exhibit a steep initial decline which flattens out later
in the well’s life. We take this into account when looking at well economics.
What the Ohio service
industry needs to know
he oil and gas upstream service industry is
still the best opportunity for near term
growth for Ohio companies that are looking
to get in on the Utica Shale boon. In 2012
Cleveland State projected drilling could reach 1000
wells/year by 2015. Drilling trends suggest this
number may be high, but not by much.
ere are two industry trends that control much
of service contracting. e first is that oil and gas
operations are becoming increasingly complex,
requiring more specialization, and more
subcontracting. e second is that industry custom
is firmly entrenched, and will only begrudgingly
give way to new ways of doing business,
notwithstanding the unconventional business
model that shale drilling presents.
What does this mean for Ohio service
First, industry practice for service contracting,
based largely upon the offshore Gulf of Mexico
model, is for parties to agree to reciprocal “no
fault” indemnification. is means that service
companies are responsible for injuries to their own
employees and equipment regardless of who is at
fault. e oil and gas industry calls this a “knock
for knock” indemnity, or, more cynically, the “bury
your own dead” provision. e thinking is that if
parties can avoid litigation over fault, it will save
time and money.
But be aware of limitations to these agreements.
While Ohio has no specific oil field anti-indemnity
statute (yet), it does have construction laws that
may frown on agreements that allow parties to
escape liability for their own negligence, especially
when it leads to personal injury. Further, there is a
“gross negligence” exception – most jurisdictions
uphold knock for knock provisions only if the
cause of the injury was due to simple negligence.
Finally, knock for knock agreements only cover the
property and personnel of the parties and their
employees – not those of third parties. And
probably the biggest risk relates to pollution of
property belonging to third parties.
Another consideration for Ohio service
companies is that industry custom usually will
require first tier contractors to sign “pass through”
provisions in favor of the operator that will require
subcontractors to indemnify the operator for
injuries to the subcontractor’s personnel or
equipment caused by the operator. So if you are a
subcontractor, be prepared – you may be taking on
significant potential liability for a relatively small
Ohio service companies new to the oil and gas
business may have to survive some culture shock.
ey are not used to dealing with the sort of
indemnification provisions that are commonplace
in the oil and gas business, where the risk of injury
and property damage is high, and where there is
long history of overwrought litigation. You will
need to rely on your counsel and your insurance
company to help you navigate the oil and gas
contracting landscape.
But you need not be discouraged by lengthy
master service agreements or by difficult-tounderstand indemnification provisions. e knockfor-knock provision has one major advantage for
the small contractor: it limits damages, under most
circumstances, to injuries to your company’s own
employees or property. at is a risk most
contractors can tolerate.

As local job growth expands to meet oil and gas
industry demands, women are meeting the need
The growing number of females in the oil and gas industry proves it’s
no longer a man’s world. Females in the gas and oilfields these days
have different tasks from roustabouts to even executive statuses, and
more could be seen in the years to come.
The study shows…
he American Petroleum Institute, in
conjunction with IHS, a global provider of
information and analysis for industry,
released a study in March entitled “Minority and
Female Employment in the Oil & Gas and
Petrochemical Industries,” which took a
comprehensive look at employment by gender
and indicated that more minorities will have job
opportunities as retirements and development
increase. e study reviewed six segments: the
upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of
the oil and gas industry; petrochemical industry;
capital investment in oil and natural gas
transportation and storage infrastructure; and
capital investment in the petrochemical industry.
Of the estimated 1.3 million jobs nationwide
that are projected through 2030, about 408,000
will be filled by African-American and Hispanic
workers while female employment in both
industries could account for 185,000 positions.
e share of minorities employed in the
upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas
and petrochemical industries is anticipated to rise
from one-quarter of total jobs in 2010 to onethird in the next 20 years.
Christina Polesovsky, associate director of API’s
Ohio office in Columbus, said the number of
women on the workforce was definitely on the
“Our study looked at the most recent data
available, which was 2010, and women accounted
for 226,000 employees, which is approximately
19 percent,” Polesovsky said. “e study went to
2030 to see the employment opportunities for
women. We have an aging workforce in the oil
and gas industry that will need replacements. By
2030, we will have about 185,000 jobs that are
going to be available to women through that
She said the figure reflects 90,000 new jobs with
more than 94,000 replacement positions in all
facets of the field, from blue collar, professional
and managerial to office and support
“is study is a baseline. is is to see the type
of growth in the industry. e study started
where we are currently in the industry, and the
average age for the industry is the early 50’s. Do
we have enough workers to fill the demand the
industry is going to have? How many women are
going to be part of it? Our takeaway is that
education and training are keys to attracting
more women in the industry. Our population is
changing, and we are going to need a workforce
to effectively populate growth in the next 20
At 21 percent, Ohio and the eastern region of
the U.S. are only second to the Gulf Region in
terms of overall employment growth. e study
further found that opportunities will exist for
female petroleum engineers, managers and other
professionals, with the number of job
opportunities projected to grow by almost
30 Pipeline Connections | SUMMER 2014
70,000 between 2010 and 2030. Most of the job
growth is expected to occur in blue-collar
professions, and there is significant potential for
employment if interest and training were directed
toward women to increase participation in those
Polesovsky said skills could be honed with
training and schooling, from preparation in
Science, Technology, Engineering and
Mathematics (STEM)-related disciplines in
primary and secondary schools to learning
opportunities at the college level.
“Education and training are keys to attracting
greater workforce participation,” she added.
“High school and post-high school training
would help workers compete for well-paying jobs.
e payoff for increased skilled labor would be
enormous because we are an energy leader, but
we have to increase and diversify our workforce
in order to maintain this status.”
Kidd changed course
Misty Kidd has found her place as a land
specialist, also known as a leasing agent, and
right-of-way (ROW) agent for Rice Energy. e
Wheeling, W.Va., native was a pharmaceutical
sales representative when she realized the impact
oil and gas was having on the area. at
prompted her to change careers as jobs in her
other field were slim.
“I chose to gain knowledge in running title
searches for mineral ownership and leasing the
landowners in my community to try to play a role
in the development of natural resources in the
area, and to do my part to make sure that the
community was protected and received fair
leases. I wanted to be a part of something that was
going to change the face of the local community
forever and attempt to make sure that it was done
in the most ethical way possible,” she said. “I came
to know the Rice family early on before their
presence in Belmont County, and the way in
which they conducted their business was very
attractive to me. ey seemed to care for the local
community in the same manner that I did and
saw the landowners as ‘partners.’”
Kidd, a resident of St. Clairsville, did contract
work for the company from 2011-2012 but
joined full-time in the leasing department in
November of 2012. She joined the ROW
department this past May. She holds a Bachelor
of Science degree in marketing from Wheeling
Jesuit University and has more than a decade
worth of professional sales experience with major
international corporations. Kidd learned the
ropes about title work from another female in the
industry and began assisting with leases shortly
aerwards. Presently, she is an active member of
the American Association of Professional
Landmen (AAPL) and is in the process of
receiving her registered landman title. e latter
is obtained by meeting certain criteria and
completing an exam.
She has been responsible for negotiating,
“We have an aging
workforce in the oil and
gas industry that will
need replacements. By
2030, we will have about

draing and executing various land contracts,
including leases, but must also determine the
ownership of oil and gas interests through
preliminary title research; execute affidavits,
ratifications and modifications to cure various
title defects; and assist on special land projects
from mapping and data entry to research. As a
ROW agent, she reviews tax cards and recent
deeds, prepares documents for landowners and
attorneys and even walks properties with routers
and landowners to determine a route for the
pipeline. Kidd’s expertise also falls under the
realm of handling right-of-way agreements and
even processing and delivering checks for
landowners once construction commences. She
works with between four to 10 people and
primarily serves in Rice Energy’s office in St.
Clairsville when not attending meetings at the
company’s home office in Canonsburg, Pa.
“Rice Energy has been one of the few oil and gas
companies that I have seen hire a significant
number of female employees,” said Kidd. “I work
mostly with other females who perform the same
job functions that I do. As in-house employees,
we frequently work with contract agents. Most
of the contract agents that I have worked with in
both departments are male.”
Kidd found it easier to work in her new job and
said landowners appear to be more receptive
when dealing with female agents.
“I have always been a hard worker and
competitive in nature, so this position has been a
perfect fit for me personally. Most of the males
that I work with are very helpful, although I will
admit that some who came from other
companies prior to working with Rice Energy
occasionally displayed their opinion about
women in the industry. ere are some men who
think that women have no place in oil and gas
development when it comes to the land

department. I have heard many times the surprise
when a new employee comes to my company and
makes the statement about how different it is for
them to see so many female leasing specialists or
ROW agents,” Kidd said. “As a woman in the
industry, it is important to remain focused on the
goals at hand and to not allow this viewpoint to
impact your work performance. If you make the
commitment to do your best every day, because
it is something that you believe in, then these
viewpoints have very little impact on you and
make no difference in your professional or
personal life. I have watched the industry adopt
the practice of having women in the field doing
leasing. Unfortunately, I am noticing little
change when it comes to upper management in
land departments and placing women in those
roles. I believe and hope this will change as oil
and gas development moves forward.”
Kidd used to spend 10-to-14-hour days on the
job for five to seven days per week and currently
works 40-60 hours each week. As a divorced
mother of two, she said her children are teenagers and young adults and it does help that they
are older, but her family has been supportive and
assisted her when necessary.
She advised other females interested in the field
to research possible areas of interest before they
get into the industry and to be willing to settle
for low pay while they are in training. When
writing a resume, they should also highlight
attributes within their work history that
correspond with and benefit the company in that
desired position.
“Remember to network and market yourself at
oil and gas events around the area and
surrounding areas,” suggested Kidd. “Look to get
any certifications that will be valuable and can be
included on a resume. One field that will be sure
to see a huge rise in job availability will be in the
welding field. I have heard on more than one
32 Pipeline Connections | SUMMER 2014
occasion how women are great welders for
pipelines, etc. e pay is really great and I believe
one can obtain a welding certification in different
programs ranging from two months to two
As with any industry, Kidd said there are always
ups and downs but she has found the energy
sector to be very rewarding.
“I am very lucky to have a career where I enjoy
getting up every day and going to work. I love
sharing information with new people that we
bring on board with the company. I tell people
all of the time how much I love my career and
how I cannot think of any other job that I would
like to be doing right now.”
Kidd is currently working towards an associate’s
degree in computer science and found herself part
of the boon at the right time. She said most of the
jobs with oil and gas companies have an
expiration date and workers could expect to be
relocated, while much of the land in the Utica
Shale has been leased. Now that she is part of the
pipeline ROW department, she can continue
working with local landowners she has come to
know in the community.
“I am gaining new training in another field in
the oil and gas industry which helps to grow my
resume and make me a more valuable candidate
in this industry.”
A helping hand
For Megan Cook, opportunities are ripe in her
own backyard.
e St. Clairsville resident has worked for the
past eight months at her husband’s business,
Mustang Oilfield Services, which is also located
in that town. She primarily works on the safety
side for Mustang Oilfield Services but started in
the oil and gas industry with MPR Supply Chain
Solutions located in Bellaire by handling the
company’s aggregate and water sales.
“My husband (Greg) started his business a year
ago and I started helping him with safety policies
and quickly became integrated in the full day to
day operations,” she said. “I currently handle JSA
topics and perform safety checks on trucks as well
as training in the field.”
Mustang Oilfield Services is an energy sector
company that specializes in material and
equipment transport with an expanding fleet of
trucks for hauling fresh water and residual waste.
eir fleet also includes winch trucks, flatbeds,
drop-deck oilfield trailers, lowboys and
gooseneck trailers of various sizes. e company
currently employs 40 people, three of whom are
women in management positions with a fourth
woman in the field.
“We started to service the demand for oilfield
trucking needs in the Ohio region and our fleet
is quickly growing to better serve the needs of
multiple customers. Mustang prides itself on
continued learning and training processes to
ensure the safety of everyone on the road and on
the wellpad.”
She said companies that hire Mustang know
they are teaming up with a company that is led by
individuals with diverse oilfield experience.
Mustang currently operates in Belmont,
Guernsey and Noble counties here in Ohio as
well as several counties in West Virginia and
Cook also took an interest in the Women’s
Energy Network, a female-based group that
discusses happenings in the industry, and said she
has seen the change on the horizon.
“It’s not just a man’s world anymore. I don’t feel
it’s a disadvantage to be a woman in this industry.”
She spends 10-15 hours a day, six to seven days
a week at Mustang. Despite the non-stop
schedule, she wouldn’t want it any other way.
“It is a fast-moving industry and every day is
different,” Cook added. “It is great to be a part of
the industry right here in our backyard and see
the growth of the communities. We’re very
invested in this area and want [the industry] to
succeed…and do a job that is safe and respects the
land in Belmont County and the surrounding
In the family business
Sarah Tipka knows a thing or two about the
industry, but it was not always her main vocation.
She is a land manager and co-operates A.W.
Tipka Oil and Gas, Inc., in Dover with her
husband, Alan, but spent more than two decades
in the classroom. Alan was a management
consultant and also worked for the Ford Motor
Co. but joined the family business in 1980 that
was led by his father before him. Alan went on to
form A.W. Tipka two years later.
“I was lucky to marry into the oil and gas
industry,” she said. “I was an elementary school
teacher in Indiana for 21 years and worked [for
the company] during the summer. I learned a lot
from my husband and father-in-law, who took me
around to do leases. at was very informative
and I try to learn from everybody and I share
what I’ve learned with others. It’s so important to
improve your education, so that’s why we try to
learn about it.”
Tipka is also president of Natural Energy Corp.,
an oil and gas investment firm; however, she
spends much of her time at the family business,
which also includes an all-female office staff of
one part-time and three full-time employees.
“We find locations to drill and subcontract the
geophysical analysis, drilling and well tending,”
she said. “Some days I like to go out and look at
the wells. I always enjoyed the early days of going
out and watching the drilling.”
A.W. Tipka also invests with other oil and gas
companies and operates in Tuscarawas, Harrison,
Guernsey, Stark and Medina counties, with
further involvement in Licking and Belmont
counties as well as West Virginia, Pennsylvania
and Wyoming. Tipka generally works from 8:30
a.m. to 5 p.m. or later each day and finds every
day to pose a new challenge, but it is one she

“It’s not just a man’s world
anymore. I don’t feel it’s a
disadvantage to be a
woman in this industry.”
- Megan Cook, Mustang Oilfield
“It’s definitely a family-oriented operation. Our
clients, staff and contractors are considered
family and the wells we drill are like a marriage.
I’m very proud to work in an industry where we
could provide reliable, economical ‘Ohio-grown’
energy in an environmentally responsible way.”
But she still finds herself teaching from time to
time and utilizes her skills as an oil and gas energy
educator by heading workshops for the Ohio Oil
and Gas Energy Education Program, which she
has been active in since 1998 and has also served
intermittently on the board.
Tipka takes pride in using her educational
background in a different way.
“I have a background in teaching but I’ve always
had a desire to learn the industry. I guess in a
sense I’m still teaching,” she said. “I’m just not
teaching kindergarten and first grade.”
In addition, she has been part of the Ohio Oil
and Gas Association since the mid-1980s and
gained the organization’s 2007 Oilfield Patriot
Award for her efforts to protect, promote and
advance the common interests of those engaged
in the industry, and currently serves on its board
of trustees. Tipka has also been past president
and program committee chairman of the
Tuscarawas Valley Desk and Derrick Club, which
is part of an international collective and has
regional members from Tuscarawas, Guernsey,
Stark, Wayne and Carroll counties and such
companies as Dominion East Ohio, Enervest and
Atlas Energy.
She summarized her advice for other
prospective female oil and gas workers in one
word: Learn.
“It’s one industry where you work hard no
matter who you are. Learn everything you can.
Get involved and be curious and hardworking.
You have to be eager to learn new things and be
open to new opportunities.”
Reda a pioneer
Rhonda Reda, who helped establish and
currently heads the Ohio Oil and Gas Energy
Education Program, began her long journey on
the oil and gas track about 27 years ago. She
moved to Marietta when her husband was
transferred for his job, and it was there that she
realized the enormity of the industry.
“I got into it by accident,” she recalled. “For me,
it was a real eye-opener. I fell in love with the
science and people in the industry. Twenty-seven
years later, I’m so thrilled and honored to
represent it in what I do today.”
She once worked for a federal banking and loan
institution while living in Dayton, but a
relocating to Southeast Ohio, she was employed
by an oil and gas company and found herself
performing a variety of tasks, from administrative
and accounting work to joint ventures and
acquisitions and gas marketing. She counts
herself among the lucky ones to have worked in
so many facets of the industry through the years.
But during a recent Women in Energy meeting,
she told members that she’d attended her first
meeting more than a quarter-century ago and it
was a rude awakening.
“Two gentlemen said there should be a cooking
and sewing club I could oversee,” she said, adding
that the karma that later followed was immensely
sweet. “I was very honored and humbled to
receive one of the industry’s highest honors, and
I was congratulated by one of the men [who
made that remark]. I do remember when it was a
men’s club. To see more women today…it’s
She earned her accolades through hard work
and pioneering the establishment of OOGEEP.
But before that happened, Reda served with
CGAS Exploration, which was the second largest
oil and gas producer in Ohio at the time and later
bought by Enron. ose assets and wells are now
in part owned by EnerVest. In the meantime, she
raised two children who are now in college and
said they helped her at times.
“When I talk to women about it, there is a
different mom role and you have to figure out
ways to balance both, and at times it’s a challenge.
You don’t want to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to your
kids by phone and it’s a hard thing to do.”
She remembered a time when her daughter
once returned home from school and discussed
seeing a picture of an oil-covered duck, fearing
the worst of the industry. at fueled Reda’s
intent to formulate educational programs.
“She thought I was going out and killing
animals and polluting the environment. For me,
it became personal. I went from working for a
for-profit to forming a non-profit group.”
She worked for the Ohio Oil and Gas
Association and served on several committees,
then helped organize oil and gas energy
education programs. From that point, she did
public speaking, teaching programs and public
outreach. In 1989, she helped establish
OOGEEP and her kids even got in on the act.
“My daughter helped design informational
material for OOGEEP and the kids helped me
stuff envelopes. You might say they worked with
me in the industry very early on. ey spent a lot
of time in the office with me.”
As OOGEEP’s executive director for the past
16 years, her tedious schedule has entailed
working 60-70 hours or more per week,
sometimes for seven days. She travels from her
home in Pataskala and oen visits eastern Ohio,
plus she said her staff has grown from a supply
closet with two shelves to a group of five in much
larger surroundings.
“It was created through Ohio Revised Code
1510 and is not a state agency. I was here from
day one,” she said. OOGEEP’s goal is to ensure
everyone—including females—has an advantage.
“For young females, this industry operates 365
days a year. Just because it’s a holiday doesn’t
mean the wells stop operating. ey must be

willing to work in all weather elements. People
think oil and gas is the picture of a person on a
drilling rig and there are more opportunities than
that,” she commented. “Everyone always gets
challenged, and as a female you probably have to
do a little bit extra because of that perception that
you are weak. [e female workforce] was well
under 5 percent when I started, and today it is
around 20 percent. I remember going to
meetings for years and I was the only female. at
20 percent reflects [the amount of scholarships
going to females this year] through OOGEEP,
which is coincidental.”
Like Tipka, Reda fervently believes that the
ability to rise through the ranks relies on
education. is year, OOGEEP has given away
46 scholarships and works with numerous
colleges and high schools to provide programs
that give students a hint at what the industry is
“For them, it has to start in middle school and
high school. ey will learn a lot about Science,
Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
(STEM), and if they are good in any of the
STEM fields there are an abundance of great
opportunities for them. ey need to educate
themselves on those opportunities, and if any
pique their interest they should go for it. ere
are many more opportunities than there used to
be and they should take advantage,” Reda
concluded. “ere are not many females in
leadership positions but they are increasing.
ere’s a respect now.”

Area colleges prepare
students for an
ever-growing energy field
n anticipated further growth of oil and
gas jobs has spurred institutions of higher
learning to expound upon their curricula
and empower college students with the tools
they need to work in the field.
e Ohio Department of Job and Family
Services’ annual Shale Report estimated there
were 189,753 core shale-related and ancillary
jobs as of the third quarter of last year, while
another review projected that total to rise to
200,000 by 2015. ose positions vary from
blue-collar professions to scientific and
managerial positions, requiring training in fields
such as petroleum engineering, geoscience,
management and business and finance, as well
as technicians. Workforce training is critical to
meeting those demands and that idea is filtering
down to colleges, universities and trade schools
in hopes of filling the ever-growing niche.
Energy Institute under way
e Energy Institute implemented by Belmont
College in St. Clairsville is a prime example of
the specific developmental programs and
courses taking shape in our area. e Energy
Institute, which began about two years ago,
works with industry professionals to develop
training programs. Operations Manager Ed
Mowrer said the program not only covers oil
and gas but also prepares those interested in coal
mining, power generation, chemical plant
operation and energy conservation. A large part
of that preparation comes from working with
the industry and college officials have met with
company representatives to brainstorm ways to
help each other.
“We speak with companies such as Hess
Corporation, Gulfport Energy and Chesapeake
Energy to find out what large companies want
and what smaller supporting companies need.
We’ve seen an amazing jump with oil and gas
growth,” he explained. “Most of the companies
have been very responsive in telling us what they
need. ey want someone with so skills who
can communicate well, work with a computer
and do problem solving, and that’s exactly what
we teach. Students have been touring well sites
as part of their training and we are dealing with
a lot of companies that assist with our programs.
e oil and gas industry has been very
supportive of us.”
Companies have also provided funding for
education, with thousands of dollars in
scholarships given through Hess Corp. and
$20,000 from Dominion Gas for new welding
equipment. Additionally, the Ohio Oil and Gas
Energy Education Program (OOGEEP)
awarded its own scholarships to students over
the past year.
To ready the future workers, Belmont College
has undergone some growth of its own and
added two petroleum engineers and two
electrical engineers to its faculty, plus it
expanded its welding staff. Mowrer cited the
Introduction to Oil and Gas class as the
benchmark course, saying it had four students
last year but has increased to 15 during the latest
class. e course reviews the industry so
students learn a little about drilling, leasing,
hydraulic fracturing and downstream processes.
Building on that, a series of other courses were
created, such as Introduction to Geographical
Information Systems (GIS), which focuses on
computer skills for mapping, Geology of coal,
gas and oil deposits, and several coalmining
courses. He also noted that some guest speakers
had previously distributed business cards to his
students and asked students for resumes because
they needed to hire right away.
“More people are getting interested every
semester,” he said. “We have traditional degrees
that are strong in engineering and added oil and
gas courses to prepare students for jobs in the
Mowrer said the college's educational
approach was different from other schools
because it is three-pronged. e first prong
incorporates basic classes to earn a commercial
driver's license, Safeland training to certify
students in safety awareness and Occupational
Safety and Health Administration training. e
Safeland program was expanded in June and
works with Mideast CTC, which is fully
certified by the International Association of
Drillers and Contractors (IADC) to provide
the curriculum. ose classes are offered from 8
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every third ursday of the
month at Belmont College’s main campus in St.
Clairsville and upcoming dates are scheduled
for Sept. 18, Oct. 16 and Nov. 20. e cost is
$225 and includes a workbook and IADC
Safeland USA Card, but discounts are available
for groups of 10 or more. Class sizes are limited.
e second prong provides oil and gas-related
courses that can be incorporated into a civil
engineering, industrial electronics technology
or related degree. Mowrer said that puts
graduates on track for employment in the
“Most of our technical graduates are finding
jobs. One unique thing about Belmont
College is we are one of the few schools in
Southeastern Ohio to offer civil engineering
courses and there’s a demand for our
Lastly, he said courses such as Oil and Gas
Accounting 1 and 2, and Pipeline Welding
were developed for those who already hold a
degree and have work experience but want
more specific skills in the industry.
Continuing education units will be offered for
certified public accountants completing the
Oil and Gas Accounting courses. Moreover,
there is a “Geology of Oil and Gas” segment
taught by a petroleum engineer. e college
also doubled the size of the welding lab to help
fulfill the industry’s need for workers. Mowrer
said welding students can earn a one-year
certification or a two-year degree.
"We have a variety of other courses. Last year,
we added OSHA safety training and
Introduction to GIS. One way that we are a
little different from other schools is we are
taking existing degrees and adding courses
instead of developing a completely new
degree," he continued. "We have dozens of
students involved. As word gets out, more
people are coming. We've had people drive
from Akron to St. Clairsville to take some of
these courses. We are also coupling the courses
with several new certificates which can be
taken separate to or as part of a degree."
e CDL course is currently offered at the
Harrison County Center in Cadiz with
another one up and running at the satellite
center in Woodsfield, Monroe County, and a
third eyed for Belmont County. Mowrer
commented that job placement prospects were
very good for CDL-trained drivers and one
local company is staffed with half of their
workforce graduating from Belmont College.
“ere are jobs available for nearly all of our
graduates,” he said.
EGCC offers gateway to workforce
Eastern Gateway Community College in
Steubenville is not only setting its sights on
helping new students enter the industry, but
also aiming to help displaced workers looking
for a new career.
Mark Ciccarelli, director of workforce and
community outreach at EGCC, said a 16credit certificate program entitled “Oil and
Gas Field Maintenance Technician” began this
past January with five students but ended with
three once the semester closed in the spring.
However, he expects even more people to take
the upcoming course this fall.
“It’s going to be in the double digits, about 10 or more,” he said. “We’ve
gotten a lot of interest. e program we offer is designed to be shortterm and give someone a viable credential to get an entry-level job in the
oil and gas field.”
Students must have a valid driver’s license and pass a criminal
background check and drug test, which is included in the $2,800 tuition
and required by employers. Classes are available for “Introduction to the
Natural Gas, Oil and NGL Industry,” “Health, Safety and Environment,”
“Gas and Oil Industry Mechanical Basics” and “Introduction to Industry
Equipment, Utilization, Operation and Maintenance” with college
credit given for four-week courses. He said the program is geared towards
the unemployed and underemployed with evening classes provided from
5 or 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. from Monday to ursday. Classes start Aug.
25 and last until mid-December.
“At the end of the program, they get an EGCC certificate for the
program and the credentials to get an entry-level job in the oil and gas
industry,” he said. “ere is no national standard but we had the
curriculum vetted by the oil and gas industry.”
EGCC further offers PEC Safeland training with a one-day basic
course and three-day core course. e college previously received grant
funding through ShaleNet to establish a partner school and trained 17
students in seven classes. ose funds are no longer available and
Ciccarelli noted the grant was now offered to colleges at Stark State and
in Pennsylvania and Texas. But a natural gas technology associate’s degree
was being added which was created by an energy advisory board affiliated
with the school and also vetted by the Workforce Investment Board.
“We are looking at our programs as one of continuous improvement,”
he added. “We’ve already restructured two of the courses and hope to
bring in more lab equipment in the near future for it. We hope to get
grants from oil and gas companies and potential in-kind donations of
used equipment for the classrooms.”
EGCC is also setting its sights on obtaining several grants to add a
mechatronics lab, which essentially combines mechanical and electrical
studies and would be useful in the field.
“Some of the component has oil and gas overlay with pressure, volume
and flow and we may try to include that component in class,” he
continued. “Oil and gas field maintenance technicians [are another
demand]. A lot of companies are going to put in a well and we designed
a curriculum to do the work aer drilling is done. ere will be
maintenance of the pipelines and they will need to do inspections and
read meters. We toured the Columbia Gas Training Center in Claysville,
Pa., with advisory board member Jack Harper, who assisted us in putting
the program together. We put a great amount of thought and planning
into it and these are all brand new courses.”
e added courses also mean some extra help in the form of three
adjunct faculty members. Ciccarelli said growth within the programs
were slow but sure.
“It looks like the program is going to grow, but it’s going to be a year or
two before growth hits Jefferson County,” Ciccarelli said. “Even aer
that comes, there will be the implementation of long-term jobs with the
maintenance of equipment.”
EGCC also incorporates intermediate and advanced welding classes to
train for pipeline welding or other vocations. One class recently
graduated in May and Ciccarelli said it may lead to high-paying jobs
because of the involved skill set. e latest course began on July 21 and
the Workforce Investment Board obtained a grant to provide $5,000 to
$12,500 per student. Among the criteria, students must be collecting
unemployment compensation and be a resident of Ohio or displaced
from an Ohio job.
“In 20 weeks, they can come out with a skill set for life.”
He said the energy boom is gradually affecting his neck of the woods,
but the goal is to make sure the college’s graduates are ready to work.
“Here in Jefferson County the energy boom has not really hit, but if
you go across to Carroll County you’ll see a different story,” Ciccarelli
added. “I’ve also had calls from Beckley, W.Va., for displaced coalminers
who get $5,000 to take courses and two of them are coming up, so it’s
slowly growing.”
Students om Belmont College take a tour of a local gas processing facility as part of their
education to prepare them for jobs in the oil and gas industry.
Marietta College sees uptick in programs
Marietta College boasts a renowned petroleum
engineering program that has attracted students
from around the world. Dr. Bob Chase, who has
headed the petroleum engineering and geology
department since 1978, said enrollment has been
on the rise in recent years. Dr. Chase said shale
drilling in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio
led to an uptick around 2010, causing many
changes within the program. For one, the cap on
the number of students accepted into the
program was increased from 60 to 90 per class
(i.e., freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors)
and the overall total is limited to 360. He added
that the program has doubled in size since 2008
and the department also has added two faculty
members to aid with instruction over the past. It
currently has seven full-time engineers and five
full-time geologists on staff, plus some adjunct
faculty is utilized to help balance the teaching
“is past year we had approximately 350
students enrolled in the program. We had over
530 high school students apply to get in for the
upcoming year and we accepted 92 students,” he
said. “We had over 60 students attending other
schools apply to transfer into the program but we
were only able to accept three because we have a
cap on each class at 90 students and our upperlevel classes were nearly full already.”
e program offers three sections of all its
courses in the major so that enrollment in each
section is at 30 students. Dr. Chase said about
370 students will take part in petroleum
engineering this fall, along with about 60 majors
in geology and another 15 in the new energy and
land management (landman) program.
40 Pipeline Connections | SUMMER 2014
Marietta College has attracted international
students from as far as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and
China, but entering the program is not an easy
task. e department selectively admits about 90
of the 250-300 applications it receives annually.
Students must have the equivalent of a 25 on
their ACT math tests and an overall score of 25
plus a cumulative grade point average of 3.4 or
higher in high school to be accepted into the
“e average overall ACT for our incoming
class is 27.7,” he commented. “We accept only
approximately 90 freshmen each year.”
Freshmen must complete 32 credit hours and
maintain at least a 3.0 GPA to be admitted as
sophomores into the petroleum engineering
“Our majors prepare for the exploration side of
the business and focus on the areas of drilling,
production and reservoir engineering,” he
A high percentage of students complete
internships in the summer; however, with classes
ever growing in size, the challenge of obtaining
internships is increasing. But the department has
enjoyed a placement rate of nearly 100 percent
of its graduates historically. Furthermore, the
college recently announced plans to add a land
and energy management degree and an
engineering leadership certificate this fall. Majors
in land and energy management qualify to
become exploration landsmen and research land
and titles and negotiate leases with property
owners, while the certification will marry
petroleum engineering with the college’s
leadership program.
“We will always be adding new material to our
courses. We are seeking to raise $12 million to
double the size of our current building and
renovate our laboratories.”
Dr. Chase said the growing industry would
always have a demand that schools could supply.
e latest alumni included a crop of 66 students
from the program during commencement in
“Our international students all typically have
jobs when they go home. Only one of our
graduating “American students is still looking for
work; the rest all have jobs. We have had 100percent placement or very close to it every year
going back to 1990.”
Part of that process includes an Industry
Advisory Committee comprised of company
representatives that meets college administration
and geology and petroleum engineering faculty
every spring to review its program, offer advice
and help make continuous improvements to the
“Our placement is excellent because we focus
on bringing high-quality students into our
program, help them find summer internships,
keep our classes sizes small so students have
plenty of opportunity to interact with the
faculty,” he concluded. “ere will be more and
more wells drilled in Ohio and there will be a
need for petroleum engineers, and that’s good
news for our students.”
By the numbers
e ODJFS Shale Report indicated a 79percent jump in core shale-related employment
(pipeline construction and well drilling, etc.)
between 2011 and the third quarter of 2013 with
a 1.5-percent spike also occurring in ancillary
jobs, such as freight trucking. In addition, about
127 core shale-related business establishments
were added during that timeframe, while
ancillary shale-related sites declined by 0.9
percent. ose numbers will only rise as more
pipelines, plants and other projects come to the
area. Unemployment rates in the six-county
region encircling Harrison, Jefferson, Carroll,
Belmont, Guernsey and Tuscarawas counties
were hovering between 10-14 percent in recent
years but have dropped by at least half. e most
current tallies put Ohio’s statewide
unemployment rate at 5.5 percent with the U.S.
averaging 6.3 percent but declining.
Incidentally, OOGEEP’s study indicated more
growth was on the horizon. e potential
economic impact of the Utica Shale formation
would help generate and support more than
200,000 jobs over the next few years due to the
leasing, royalties, exploration, drilling,
production and pipeline construction. Officials
said the figure should shoot up to about 204,520
in 2015, while industry wages are projected to
grow to more than $12 billion in annual salaries
and personal income to Ohioans by that time.

The unlikely story of a
former baseball coach
turned shale gas player
t might sound out of place for a 48-year-old Florida college baseball coach to be at the
forefront of the energy revolution taking place in our region, yet for Robert “Coach”
Rikeman it’s surprisingly similar.
Even though his locker room has been replaced by an office, and his playing field now has
well heads instead of bases, for the man everyone knows as “Coach” his success “on the field”
is still in the hands of a group of young men who are willing to put in the extra effort to be
their best, while working as a team to reach a common goal. So, no matter if it’s on the
baseball field or in the oil field it’s the same game for Coach.
Rikeman’s journey began at Brandeis University where he was enrolled as a pre-med
student. Yet, in his junior year he realized he wanted to be a part of baseball and switched
majors. Rikeman got his shot at the big leagues when he was hired as an associate scout in
New England for the Chicago White Sox. It wasn’t until 1994 when Rikeman got invited
to Rollins College in Winter Park, Fla., when his future fate in the energy-game began.
Brought in as a pitching coach, Rikeman was shortly moved up to head coach, a position
he would have never le until he received a call in 2010 from his former All-American
catcher Toby Rice.
Rice, along with his two brothers were early identifiers of the Marcellus Shale in
southwestern Pennsylvania and had started Rice Energy, a small independent natural gas
exploration and production company based in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Today, Rice
Energy is a publicly traded company listed on the New York Stock Exchange with a market
capitalization exceeding $3 billion.
On June 30, Pipeline Connections magazine got to spend a day with Coach, here’s
what happened.
Robert “Coach” Rikeman has served as Vice President of Logistics for Rice Energy since January
2014 after serving as Operations Coordinator and Operations Manager since April 2010. Prior to joining
Rice Energy, Mr. Rikeman worked in college and professional baseball as a coach and professional
scout from 1988 to 2010. Mr. Rikeman is a member of the Board of Directors of the Ohio Valley Oil
and Gas Association and has recently completed the Six Sigma Black Belt training program. He is a
graduate of Brandeis University with a BA in Political Science and a graduate of The University of
Massachusetts with an MS in Sports Management.
6:10 AM
9:05 AM
11:24 AM
5:00 A.M. – Robert “Coach” Rikeman is no stranger to the
gym. In fact, during his early coaching days he would oen
sleep in the locker room. Maybe out of necessity then, but
today like many working the long hours common in the oil
and gas industry, you’ve got to get it done early. Besides, the
early morning workouts have proven an excellent networking
opportunity with other industry folks from MarkWest and
ROC who also start their day off at the Anytime Fitness in
Canonsburg. Coach spends 45 minutes to an hour mostly
liing weights, before heading directly to his office at Rice
Energy’s corporate headquarters in Southpointe.
6:10 A.M. – While most of the 180 employees working at the
Hillpointe Drive office don’t file in until later, Coach likes to
view his “essential” reports before the day gets started. With
water playing such an important role in shale development,
Coach begins each day with his Water Source Breakdown
Report. With approximately 10 -15 million gallons of water
needed to frack a single well, reports showing the amounts of
water drawn, water transported, water pumped, water
recycled, and water disposed are critical and closely reviewed
by Coach. With Rice Energy’s Utica focus centered in
Belmont County, the company is building the infrastructure
needed to fully develop its 50,000-acre leasehold in the
county. eir intricate plan involves a two-year build out that
will include 60 miles of water pipeline, and 100 million gallons
of water storage comprised of eight to nine strategically
positioned ponds, each with a capacity of 10-15 million
7:20 A.M. – Being the seventh employee hired by Rice back
in 2010, and carrying the role as a vice president, Coach is not
limited in his job functions. In fact, the youthful, flat
organizational structure at Rice is what Coach boasts as a key
factor in their rise to the 27th leading producer of natural gas
in the United States. “Field decisions can’t be made in the
boardroom,” said Rikeman. e next item in Coach’s daily
morning routine is a review of the construction reports along
with a host of other company-wide reports including
environmental and safety. With such a vast operation spread
over several counties in Pennsylvania and Ohio, surprisingly
Rice Energy’s operations are virtually paperless. To track its
operating functions, Rice has developed an in-house system of
apps to assist its staff. e Rice Energy staff has access to over
30 apps from their electronic devices including all reporting
tools and forms needed such as accident forms, pipeline forms,
11:36 AM
safety forms and water truck forms. e cross-company
platform allows each staff member access and knowledge of
the full operation and not just information within their
department or specific job function.
8:10 A.M. – Prior to the start of his scheduled morning
meetings, Coach reserves time to plan for future operations
especially as they relate to water and fracks. Aer a short time
with Coach, it’s easy to see the genuine enthusiasm he has for
his job. “When I was coaching baseball there wasn’t a day I
didn’t want to go to work – this is the same,” said Rikeman.
e other thing that is apparent is even though Rikeman is no
longer in a stick and ball career, his “team” approach remains,
and the pride he has for his co-workers shows. “ese are 20year-old kids with a high school education wanting to work
12-14 hours a day…its a very demanding job, it doesn’t stop
for weather, holidays or weekends, but they are willing to put
in the effort,” said Coach.
8:35 A.M. – Coach checks in with Rice Energy’s Vice
President of EH&S Mike Lauderbaugh. Coach wants to make
sure Lauderbaugh’s staff is aware of a landowner located near
a well pad entrance that will be busy in the coming days due
to a scheduled frac. e two agree to position a flagger at the
landowner’s driveway so they can come and go with their daily
routine without being stuck in traffic or have issues getting in
and out. Safety at Rice Energy seems to be a top priority and
it is infused into every aspect of their operations including the
back-in “tactical” style parking employed at company
headquarters. More seriously, Lauderbaugh oversees many
things ranging from personal protective gear to spill
procedures and the surveillance of static electricity detection
cameras. One unique safety element implemented at Rice
Energy is the operation of their own traffic enforcement
patrol. e unit consists of nine staff members made up of
mostly retired law enforcement. Using six dedicated safety
patrol vehicles, the team enforces a one-strike policy on
contractors and even Rice employees with use of radar on
bonded routes servicing their well sites. e concept has been
well received by landowners and local municipalities.
8:50 A.M. - Just prior to his big conference meeting with
other company VPs, Coach has time to meet with Rice
Energy’s Director of Permitting & Regulatory Compliance.
is is a routine logistics meeting these two men hold each
Monday morning. e two review the company’s operation
calendar to make sure they are in sync for the upcoming week.
It’s easy for a company like Rice to have $1 million spent on a
well pad in dirt work, aggregate and environmental before any
drilling occurs, so the details are important.
9:05 A.M. – Department heads and VPs begin filing into a
large conference room filling up chairs along a long table.
Sitting at the head of the table, Coach runs the fast-paced
meeting where as many as 14 people will present an update, a
review or report an issue to the group. Topics ranging from
construction, production, water, midstream, flaggers and roads
are all discussed and solutions to any issues in these areas are
offered from the group.
9:37 A.M. – On a typical Monday morning the next item on
11:54 AM
12:00 PM
the schedule would be Coach’s 10 a.m. waste meeting, but
today Coach needs to head across Interstate 70 to Belmont
County to take a look at a few things and visit a landowner.
Over the past few months his time in the field has been
overtaken by meetings and office work, so the road trip is
9:51 A.M. – Before getting on the road, Coach has to pick
up a company vehicle in an overflow parking area across the
street from the new Rice Energy corporate headquarters
being built just a quarter-mile from the current office.
Construction on the new two-story glass building began in
December 2013, and should be completed in August 2014.
10:05 A.M. – e hour drive west to Belmont County is an
easy commute up Interstate 79 to Interstate 70. Prior to two
months ago, Coach would have used the drive time like
many busy people do today; checking phone calls, emails
and text messages. Unfortunately, it took the loss of a close
friend in a traffic accident at the I-70 and I-79 interchange
for Coach to change his ways. Now with his cell phone put
away during his drive, Coach will only take an occasional
phone call over Bluetooth, yet most importantly Coach
lobbied Rice Energy to implement a host of safety measures
to keep travels safer. In addition to defensive driving courses
and sleep deprivation training required by all employees, the
Rice Energy company vehicles have been outfitted with
technology through their cellular provider Verizon to
disable certain internet and texting functions while the
vehicle is in use. Also, each company vehicle is equipped
with GPS units that report back to Lauderbaugh’s office if
anyone is speeding. Rice also requires any subcontractor
hauling produced water to submit GPS speedometer
readings as well.
11:15 A.M. – Not far off Exit 216 on I-70, Coach arrives
on the scene in Belmont County at the crown jewel of Rice
Energy’s Utica acreage. A massive 500-foot drilling pad that
can accommodate 18 wells appropriately named “Bigfoot.”
According to Rice, the Bigfoot 9H well is the most prolific
well in the Utica that tested at a max rate of 42 million cubic
feet of natural gas per day, which validates Rice’s $300
million investment in mineral leases in Belmont County. On
this day activity at the well site is minimal. A small crew from
the Pennsylvania-based Fluid Delivery Systems (FDS) is
working on a water transfer operation that will pump 3,000
to 4,000 gallons of water per minute from the 9.5 milliongallon water storage pond located at the Bigfoot site to Rice’s
nearby Blue under site just a few miles away. However,
that’s not what brought Coach to Bigfoot, it was to meet
with Rice Energy’s SCADA Manager, and Gas Operations
Supervisor, along with a representative from American
Electric Power. e men need to discuss the installation of
a power line to provide electricity to a large house on the
property that will be converted into a Rice Energy field
office, however, there are some right-of-way crossings that
need looked at, along with clearance heights of lines that
won’t interfere with large equipment needed to travel the
access road such as drilling rigs or upright sand kings.
11:24 A.M. – With a few minutes to spare before the rep
from American Electric Power is set to arrive, Coach takes
time to go over the 20-plus emails he got on the drive over
plus return a phone call.
11:36 A.M. – Aer a brief introduction they take to the
property on foot discussing the different options for the new
power line. Aer about 20 minutes a solution is reached and
a location is agreed upon.
11:54 A.M. – Coach jumps back into his company vehicle
and drives to the top of the rolling landscape at the Bigfoot
site from the lower pond area to the actual drilling pad that
sits atop the plateau. Once again a small crew is on hand;
this time a roustabout team from ROC Service Company.
ey are manning the GPU; otherwise know as a
production unit or a separator. e Bigfoot well uses a twophase separator that heats the water and gas. e dry gas
being produced is going into a Dominion pipeline. Despite
its low activity at the time, the Bigfoot well is considered a
high profile location and is equipped with a monitoring
system that broadcasts streaming surveillance video back to
12:16 P.M. – Aer visiting the Bigfoot well, Coach is
heading just a few miles west to the Blue under pad to
check on preparations for the upcoming frack of the 10H
and 12H wells. Once it begins, the planned “zipper” frac will
be a 24-hour operation that will last 20 to 25 days. Each of
these wells has a price tag near $15 million. e 10H and
12H at Blue under represent the second and third Utica
wells for Rice.
12:30 P.M. – Once at Blue under, Coach looks up his
water transfer team. Rice’s water team has six to eight men
involved in the water operation for this frack. Preparations
were underway and the crew was on schedule to start
pressure testing their lines. e site was very busy with
numerous crews scurrying around setting up everything
1:38 PM
1:38 PM
tophole rig will be on location to begin drilling. e tophole will
start at approximately 30 inches in diameter and gradually taper
down to around five inches.
2:12 P.M. – With everything looking good at Krazy Train, Coach
drives across the property to the back entrance of Razin Kane,
since the main access road isn’t ready. e hold up is a $195,000
cement box culvert used for crossing a creek. e culvert itself takes
12 weeks to get, but luckily it will be ready soon.
2:22 P.M. – At Razin Kane Coach gets caught up with a foreman
for the earthworks contractor. e foreman informs Coach and
the Cains they will have another week in finishing the pad. e
two discuss future pads they will be building for Rice. Additionally,
the men discuss the grading and drainage with the Cains. e
foreman and his crew move 10-to-11 thousand yards of dirt per
from pumps, to lines, mixers and tanks. Aer reviewing the setup,
Coach cruises around the entire site looking for any potential
problems or anything unsafe. In all, he likes what he sees and said
it was “a good clean site.”
1:12 P.M. – While in the area Coach wants to see the progress on
“Razin Kane” and “Krazy Train,” a pair of well pads under
construction in Goshen Township. While en route, Coach notices
some damage to the berm along Township Road 200. He finds a
place to pull off and call in an order for its repair.
1:38 P.M. – Once Coach arrives to the location, he is greeted by
property owners Glen Cain and his son Larry. e Cain’s leased
the mineral rights of their 288-acre farm to Rice. Despite having
conceded, at least temporarily approximately 26-acres of possible
farm land for their 75 head of milk cows, the Cain’s have been very
pleased with Rice and its subcontractors currently working on the
property. With the final topcoat of stone just about finished at
Krazy Train, Coach estimates to the Cains that within 10 days the
2:22 PM
2:57 P.M. – Before heading back to the office, Coach takes a
moment to look through the 18 new emails he has waiting for
attention in his inbox, plus a call to let him know a crew will be at
a site in the morning to pine tar the road to keep the dust down.
3:30 P.M. – With little time for a break throughout his day, Coach
stops at the Marathon station off Route 149 in St. Clairsville to
hit the restroom and refuel with a flavored water and some Planters
nuts. In less than 30-minutes Coach will be crossing back into
4:31 P.M. – Once back at the office, Coach has several reports to
file before he can call it a day. In all, he will need to do a water
report, and three construction reports. Luckily what once took
him two hours to complete, now with Rice’s apps Coach will be
done in less than an hour giving him just enough time to make it
to his son’s baseball practice where Rikeman is the assistant coach.
Once a coach, always a coach, for Rikeman!
“These are 20-year old kids with a high school education wanting to work 12-14 hours a’s a very
demanding job, it doesn’t stop for weather, holidays or weekends, but they are willing to put in the effort.”

Transient workers and land owners fuel growth in
local RV market
any local industries have been
benefitting from the gas and
oil industry boom throughout
the Ohio Valley in the past few years,
and RV and camper dealers are no
exception. Landowners who have
received royalties from selling mineral
and land rights have turned out to
purchase the vehicles for entertainment
purposes, but transient pipeline and
50 Pipeline Connections | SUMMER 2014
construction workers have also been
helpful in increasing RV and camper
sales. Single workers and even those
accompanied by family have purchased
RVs and campers for long-term living in
parks like Sally Buffalo Park in Cadiz,
where campsites are nearly always full.
While some transient workers came to
the area in RVs and campers, many may
also have turned to the option due to a
lack of reasonably priced housing.
Carroll County, which has the highest
number of well sites in the entire state,
has very few apartments available to
rent, and rent costs generally have
skyrocketed in the last few years.
RV parks have even assembled along
previously uninhabited roadsides; State
Route 9 and U.S. Route 250 are
particularly populated with “for-rent”
RV sites. e Utica Shale RV Park in
Belmont, located just off Interstate-70,
was designed for the sole purpose of
meeting the gas and oil industry's needs.
e park is equipped with wireless
internet and phone lines, designed for
long-term camper living.
ree local RV and camper
dealerships weighed in on the increased
David Yonak Jr., of the Sales
Department at Yonak's RV Sales &
Service in Cambridge, estimates that his
business began picking up within the
last two or three years.
"It's significant," he said. "It's not just
the people working on the pipelines, it's
the residual people. We're getting
people who have gotten royalties and
are leasing land. It's really put a lot of
money into this area. It's been great."
He says RVs and campers of all price
ranges have picked up in sales, adding
that many pipeline workers buy pricier
vehicles because they need them to be
ere's only one downside, according
to Yonak. e dealership has been so
busy that they've had to limit service
work to individuals who have bought
their vehicles on site.
"We're having so much trouble
keeping up with just the sales," he said,
adding that they have been seriously
considering looking for additional
More room for inventory had to be
made, and Yonak said he is keeping a
larger stock of inventory than ever
before. He's had to expand and gravel
more area for inventory display. Yonak
said he would even like to expand
further by buying surrounding property,
but no one is interested in selling.
“We’re getting people
who have gotten
royalties and are

put a lot of money into
this area.”
- David Yonak Jr.
e sales lot at Yanok’s RV Sales is chock full of new RVs. With the influx of oil and gas workers into the area, many businesses that deal
in RVs are having a tough time to meet the demand for new products as well as repair and service work.
Bob Stewart, Stewart’s RV
Bob Stewart, of Stewart's RV Center
in St. Clairsville, reports that sales of
parts and service work have increased
by about 30 to 40 percent, while sales
have also seen a slight increase. He
attributes some of the sales to
individuals receiving money from
leasing and royalties.
While the significant demand for
service work has not yet led to more
employees or service bays, it has led to
more overtime hours for the employees
on hand. It has also created more travel
time, as Stewart's frequently travels to
RV and camper sites for repairs.
Brian Stoney, of Stoney's RV in
Cambridge, has seen his business
increase, with the uptick based on
service and parts. Sales have increased
as well, but not as significantly.
52 Pipeline Connections | SUMMER 2014
"Basically, its increased our sales of
units some, but the main impact has
been service-related issues where we
have to go out and repair things," said
He added that keeping up with all the
service work has been challenging,
especially since they travel as far as two
hours away to meet clients' needs.
"Folks are away from home, they're
working a lot of hours, so they can't
come here. You've got to go to them,"
Stoney said.
In addition to pipeline workers,
Stoney has seen locals benefitting from
leasing cash.
"ere's less there, but some. Folks are
now affording to buy things with their
lease money and then when royalties
kick in, that's even better," Stoney
Stoney's RV has recently begun
building a new service facility to
accommodate service work, which
Stoney estimates has increased by 25 to
35 percent within the last two years.
e business has also added three
employees, and will likely add two more
next summer.
More expansion may be in the future
for Stoney's RV.
"Beyond the original scope, it has
allowed us to think about what the next
level would be," Stoney said. He added
that, from what he has heard, he guesses
the RV business will remain strong for
the next five years, though he hopes it
will keep up for even longer.
Yonak said he tries to ask everybody
who works in the gas and oil industry
how long the business boom may last.
"It's such a mixed bag, you've just got
to pay attention," he said. "I hope it lasts
for the next 20 years, because this area
needs it."
For comparison, Pennsylvania began
to experience a drilling boom in the
Marcellus shale in 2005. e number of
wells grew until 2011, which is said to
have been the peak, as the number of
wells drilled went down by about 600
in the next year.
Many economic experts, including
Ohio State University economist Mark
Partridge, say the industry takes five
years to reach the top numbers and then
begins to slack off. However, Ohio has
an advantage over Pennsylvania. e
Utica shale region has more oil and
natural gas liquids, while Marcellus is
comprised mostly of natural gas.
At any rate, as long as RVs and
campers remain in the area at a high
volume, these dealers should be able to
maintain themselves with the demand
for service work.
A close-up look at MarkWest’s condensate facility in Cadiz, Ohio
onstruction of MarkWest’s joint venture condensate
stabilization facility is firmly underway along U.S. 22. e visible
site along the highway is an ever-changing attraction for
motorists passing by, leaving a lot of locals curious about the new
facility’s sprouting structures of tanks, buildings and various networks
of steel beams, valves and more.
On July 16, 2014, Pipeline Connections magazine got an exclusive
tour of the new facility where crews are working feverishly to hit a
targeted fourth-quarter 2014 startup.
How it works
Light crude oil, otherwise known as raw condensate, extracted from
the local Utica shale play will be trucked from area wells to the new
facility. Loaded trucks will enter the plant off of State Route 9 where
they pull up to unloading skids. e off loaded condensate will initially
enter into test tanks.
Once in these tanks, a sample will be taken and tested at an on-site
lab. From there the condensate is sent to a larger process feed tank.
e condensate will be pulled from the feed tank into a 23,000 barrel
per day stabilizer. e stabilizer column, along with various pumps
and vessels assisting in the process, separates lighter natural gas liquids
from the condensate. e lighter products, which include a mixed
stream of propane, butanes, and other components, will exit the
facility via pipeline for further fractionation at MarkWest’s Hopedale
e stabilized condensate, which is generally used as a feedstock for
refineries, will be piped to a truck and rail loading terminal currently
under construction on a 15-acre parcel leased from Harrison County
that adjoins the 24-acre MarkWest site. is terminal facility will be
owned and operated by a subsidiary of Midwest Terminals of Toledo
International and is planned to have two holding tanks with several
loading positions. Stabilized condensate will be transported by truck
and rail to local refinery markets and Canadian export markets.
Top: Motorists driving along Route 22 near Cadiz can see the large storage tanks, which

Taking a closer look at the different processing facilities throughout the industry
ith the oil and gas industry
throughout eastern Ohio, area
residents have been introduced to new
sights as the landscape changes. While
most people understand the purpose of the
rigs and pipelines, the various types of
processing facilities necessary for taking
the product from the wells, and delivering
it to market can be complex. Harrison
County alone is now home to a
cryogenic plant, two fractionation plants,
and the beginning stages of a condensate
stabilizer plant.
Starting Point
e first thing to keep in mind is that
virtually every natural gas and/or oil
product that comes from the well contains
hydrocarbons, which make it unsuitable
for the mainline transmission pipelines
that transport product to market. e
liquids and certain hydrocarbons can be
extracted and sold to increase the value of
the rich Utica gas. Further, these
constituents must be removed for the gas
quality to meet interstate pipeline and
consumer specifications.
Before any processing facility can operate
it needs product from the wells.
Depending on the type of well drilled, and
drilling technique, a well either produces
dry gas (pure methane) or rich gas,
otherwise known as natural gas, which
contains natural gas liquids (NGLs).
NGLs typically contain liquids such as
62 Pipeline Connections | SUMMER 2014
e cryogenic facility on Industrial Park Road in Cadiz is operated by MarkWest Energy Partners.
ethane, propane, butane and pentane.
While the Marcellus Shale contains both
dry and rich gas, Utica shale drillers are
finding a wealth of NGLs, which many
companies prefer because they can split
them out into a variety of purity products
thus creating multiple revenue streams
from the gas produced at a single well.
Wet gas from the wells arrives via pipeline
to the cryogenic plant where the
temperature of the NGLs is brought down
to about -120 degrees F. is process
condenses the liquids and allows for pure
methane to be stripped out. e methane
can then be transported to market while
e actionator is Scio, otherwise known as the Harrison Hub, is operated by UEO Buckeye, which is a joint venture between M3
Midstream, Access Midstream and EnerVest. e facility currently processes 45,000 barrels per day and is continuing to build up its
processing and delivery capacity. Construction is expected to continue well into 2015, and once fully operational, the facility will receive and

the remaining blended hydrocarbon
product or NGLs, which include butane,
ethane, propane and natural gasoline are
sent on to a fractionator.
On Industrial Park Road in Cadiz
sits a cryogenic processing facility
operated by MarkWest Energ y
Partners, and a similar plant in
Monroe County, owned by Blue
Racer Midstream continues to build
out its Berne cryogenic facility.
“During the second quarter of
2014 we will begin operations of a
40,000 barrel per day de-ethanizer at
the Cadiz complex,” said Kevin
Hawkins, manager of investor
relations at MarkWest Energ y
Partners. “This unit will produce
purity ethane from the NGL stream
before it is sent to Hopedale for
further fractionation.”
Once the cryogenic facility finishes its
work, the hydrocarbon NGL ‘feedstock’
is transported to a fractionator. In
Harrison County there are currently two
fractionation facilities; one operated by
MarkWest Energy Partners near
Hopedale, and the second in Scio,
operated by Utica East Ohio (UEO), a
joint venture between Access Midstream,
Momentum Midstream and EnerVest.
As stated, NGLs contain varying
degrees of ethane, propane and butane.
e fractionator heats the NGL stream,
which causes the various components to
boil off in a sequence starting with the
lighter and going down to the heavier
When a stream of NGL product arrives
at a fractionator it first goes through a
deethanizer, which strips the ethane out
of the NGL stream. Aer that, the stream
heads to a depropanizer, which strips out
the propane. Finally, a debutanizer boils
off the butane contained in the stream,
leaving only natural gasoline. Some
fractionation facilities also incorporate a
butane splitter, which separates normal
butane and isobutane. Once the
fractionation process is complete, the
separate purity products are stored in
large tanks and sent downstream to
market either via truck, rail or pipeline.
Technically called an ethane cracker, a
“cracker” facility takes ethane and super
heats it so that the molecular bonds break
apart forming ethylene. Ethylene is the
petrochemical, and is used in a variety of
plastics, resins, adhesives and synthetic

An ethane cracker facility like this one likely won’t be coming to Harrison County, but Royal
Dutch Shell is deciding on whether to build the multi-billion dollar petro-chemical facility on
a 300-acre site just north of Pittsburgh, PA. Additionally, Brazilian company, Oderbrecht, is
considering the construction of an ethane cracker facility in West Virgina’s Wood County.

buy is made with ethylene, which is why
most of these cracker facilities are located
in close proximity to the factories
Currently, there are no cracker facilities
in our region partially because dry gas is
better for getting ethylene and partially
because the infrastructure for effectively
transporting ethylene to manufacturers
isn’t in place, but that may change as the
industry grows and companies invest
more in rail and pipeline.

While there is no clear definition within the industry as to
what constitutes condensates, the standard definition is that
condensate is a low-density mixture of hydrocarbon liquids,
which are present as gaseous components in raw natural gas.
Condensate (sometimes referred to as natural gasoline or light
crude oil) needs to be separated out of the raw natural gas, but
since the material is extremely volatile, and not suitable for
pipeline transportation, it must go through a stabilization
process. is is where a condensate stabilization facility comes
into play.
MarkWest Energy Partners, and their joint venture partner e
Energy & Minerals Group, is currently developing a
condensation stabilization facility in Cadiz, and anticipates the
complex will be operational later this year. Condensate
stabilization facilities distill the volatile liquid by ‘cooking’ the
material at high pressure and at varying temperatures. e result
is a much more stable product that can be safely transported
either by pipeline or by tanker. In today’s market, condensate is
widely used as a diluent, which is a fluid that reduces the
thickness of heavy oils, such as crude so that it can be more easily
transported via pipeline.
Final Destination
Where natural gas goes once it leaves the well pad largely
depends on the type of gas produced, and what the midstream
companies’ intend to do with the product depending on market
conditions. Some shale plays like the Marcellus produce more
dry gas, which doesn’t require much in the way of processing.
is is good because it’s quicker, easier and cheaper to get
product to market. Wet gas, such as the kind drillers are finding
in the Utica play requires more processing, but is oen more
desirable to midstream companies because producers benefit
from the greater value associated with rich gas when compared
to dry gas.
Utica and Marcellus shale gas drilling is here to stay at least
for the foreseeable future. According to the most recent
figures by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources there
are currently 759 horizontal wells drilled and 385 wells
producing within the Utica, and that’s only the beginning.
Magnum Hunter CEO, Gary Evans stated recently that,
“We feel like we’re only in the first inning of a nine-inning
game.” With more and more drilling permits being issued,
and the fact that most wells can be fractured multiple times,
these processing facilities (and maybe a few new ones) will
be operating for a few decades if not more.
