From Hul & Associates on Wednesday:
ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio — Hull & Associates, Inc., an industry leader in project
development, energy, and environmental consulting, announced the opening of a new
office in St. Clairsville today during the Ohio Valley Oil & Gas Association’s June luncheon
at the Belmont Hills Country Club.
Hull Chief Executive Officer Craig Kasper shared the insight leading up to the strategic
decision to open a St. Clairsville office with OVOGA members, local business leaders, and
elected officials in attendance before introducing A.J. Smith, an engineer and project
manager with Hull who will manage the new office.
“Opening an office in St. Clairsville not only positions Hull strategically to service our current
and prospective clients in the shale oil and gas industry, it also gives us the ability to create
and develop regional projects in our alternative energy, brownfields, environmental, and
waste management markets,” Kasper said. “We were patient, listened to the needs of our
clients, and studied the developing Utica Shale play in Ohio for two years before arriving at
this decision. It was extremely important for us as a company to ensure that we located an
office in the region that is fully capable of servicing all of our markets and clients. We
believe we’ve made a sound decision in locating that office here in St. Clairsville and we’re
excited to be a part of this community.”
The new office, which officially opens July 1, is located in the heart of downtown St.
Clairsville at 146 West Main Street, Second Floor, St. Clairsville, Ohio 43950. The main
office number is (800) 241-7173 and the fax number is (614) 793-9070. A.J. Smith, PE, can
be contacted locally at the office, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hull is actively working on engineering and environmental projects to service clients in the shale oil and gas industry in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. This new office will serve as a hub for regional activities and projects in all five of Hull’s market areas in eastern Ohio. Hull has additional Ohio offices in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, and Toledo; as well as offices in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Indianapolis, Indiana.
