With Chesapeake Energy and Anadarko moving into Ohio along with other exploration and production companies and the expiration of the drilling moratorium in New York State, PAGasDirectory.com will be expanding into West Virginia, Ohio and New York. The expansion has resulted in changing the directory’s name to ShaleDirectories.com.

Gas operators using PAGasDirectory.com has resulted in Pennsylvania businesses experiencing considerable growth within the natural gas industry. Bill Austin, Director of Marketing at Bethlehem Wire Rope, stated, “Our association with the PAGasDirectory.com has helped us keep abreast of the natural gas activity.” Local business owner, Mike Foster, The Print Shoppe, has seen his business with the gas industry grow significantly. “Before advertising in PAGasDirectory.com, we had a few gas company customers. Now we have over 10 gas companies that use our services regularly,” said Foster.
ShaleDirectories.com will have a database of 160,000 businesses in the Marcellus and Utica Shale region. Businesses are segmented by state, by county, and by business category. “With a few clicks, it will be easy for natural gas operators to find businesses in any county where natural gas drilling is occurring,” observed Joe Barone, President, ShaleDirectories.com.

Natural gas operators are pleased that ShaleDirectories.com will have the Apps for smart phones. They have commented, “Not all of our workers on a well site have a laptop, but they all have smart phones.”
