Nationally Recognized Design Firm Expands into Ohio to Support Oil and Gas Operations in Utica Shale Play, Growing Area
RETTEW, an Engineering News-Record (ENR) top 200 design firm, recently expanded into Ohio by opening its first office in Canton. The office is located at 5143 Stoneham Road, Suite 100, North Canton.
The engineering and consulting firm, named by ENR as the fastest-growing design firm in the United States, is well versed in environmental regulations surrounding oil and gas exploration and production and provides services to several international oil and gas firms involved in Ohio’s Utica Shale play.
RETTEW has been providing engineering and consulting services to the oil and gas industry since 2008, when it first began serving clients involved in Pennsylvania’s Marcellus Shale region. Unprecedented success in the oil and gas market prompted RETTEW to grow its office locations in Pennsylvania and expand into Ohio to work with firms involved the Utica Shale play. RETTEW provides a full gamut engineering, consulting and construction-related services to support oil and gas exploration and production. RETTEW’s general service areas include civil/municipal engineering, environmental sciences, environmental engineering, land development, planning, transportation engineering and surveying. Locally, the firm is a member of the Ohio Oil and Gas Association, Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce and Greene Chamber of Commerce.
RETTEW’s sister company, Rettew Flowback Inc. (RFI), provides flowback treatment, frac support and construction services to oil and gas exploration and production firms. RFI designed a mobile, patent-pending treatment system that recycles 100 percent of flowback and production waters, which can be used in subsequent fracking operations. RFI’s on-site system conserves water and reduces off-site trucking of flowback.
“Conducting drilling operations in an environmentally responsible manner is paramount to us and the clients we serve,” said Mark Lauriello, PE, president, RETTEW.
RETTEW was established in 1969 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as a single-person office. Today the firm employs more than 450 and has a total of ten offices. RETTEW’s Canton office currently has 45 employees, and the firm plans to add 25 more by the end of 2012. In addition to Canton, RETTEW has an office in nearby Pittsburgh, Pa.
