Northern Electric, a subsidiary of The Northern Group, announced today that it has expanded electrical, instrumentation & automation services into the midcontinent region of Oklahoma and Kansas. Northern’s President, Al Fisher, said the company has a multitude of electricians and instrument technicians in the Mississippi Lime area, and it hopes to grow its midcontinent well pad construction in conjunction with the oil boom currently under way in the region. Northern Electric, Inc., a Northern Group company, is focused on upstream and midstream electrical construction across the United States’ unconventional shale plays.
Among the significant tight oil plays in the United States, the Mississippi Lime Shale play distinguishes itself by its lower production cost and its shallower nature. The fact that the formation is shallow translates into lower well costs and increased access to infrastructure. Mississippi Lime Shale can be drilled horizontally and can benefit from hydraulic fracturing. The Mississippi Lime play ranks among the significant plays after North Dakota’s Bakken, Texas’s Eagle Ford and Permian. It is widely regarded as one of the plays credited with turning around the regions crude oil production.
Northern Group spokesman Gino Malara, Vice President of Business Development - Oil and Gas division said, “As a national industrial oil, gas and petrochemical contractor, we’re providing electrical services to several operators in the Bakken, DJ Basin, Utica and others.
