Texas-based J-W Energy has opened a subsidiary in Osnaburg Township to provide services for customers exploring the Utica shale.
A Texas company hoping to do business with companies drilling the Utica shale has opened a local office and is hiring.
J-W Wireline Co., based in Addison, Texas, has opened an office on a 10-acre site at 1520 Wood Ave. SE. The operation is a subsidiary of J-W Energy Co. and has 25 other facilities around the country, including three in Pennsylvania and one in West Virginia.
The company provides a variety of well services for drilling companies.
Perry Harris, J-W Wireline president, said he’s excited about adding a facility and expanding into the Utica shale. The company plans an open house in the coming months.
The company has openings for wireline operators and wireline service supervisors. More details are available at the company’s website, www.jwenergy.com/careers.
