$10 million oil and gas project underway in Tuscarawas County
First set of warehouses and offices are expected to open next year
by WKSU's SIMON HUSTED

Work began this week on a 10-million dollar oil and gas complex in the eastern Tuscarawas County village of Dennison. The complex will include offices and warehouses to store drilling equipment for energy companies that extract oil and gas from shale that underlies much of eastern Ohio.

David Rutgers is president of Rutgers and Company, which is developing the complex. He says it’s too soon to receive lease offers, but he is confident the project will start serving oil and gas companies beginning next year.

“We’ve had some indication of interest from a couple of companies, one of which is the company called Advanced Oilfield Services, which currently occupies a warehouse my company owns in Mineral City,” Rutgers says. “They’ve tripled their number of employees and they may be looking for additional facilities.” 

Rutgers says he expects construction on the entire complex to finish in three years.

So far, oil and gas drilling in Ohio has lagged expectations, slowed by low natural gas prices and the need for more pipelines and other infrastructure.
