“Prior to the oil and gas energy boom, this scope of work experience was not prevalent in our part of Ohio. In fact, it did not exist in most of the Midwest. The development of fracking and horizontal drilling expands beyond the Ohio borders. The new energy economy provided by the oil and gas boom is creating new job opportunities for the construction industry, particularly for the electrical construction industry. Growth in this arena is helping address the loss of jobs in the electrical construction industry and we certainly hope the turnaround will continue.”
Or maybe we should listen to those anti-oil and gas folks, like the ones commenting on my other post.
I think not. I'll take the economic activity and jobs. Warts and all, the shale revolution will be the saving grace for economies within the shale region, and beyond.
