Tuscarawas County firm, McClendon form new JV in eastern Ohio

By Bob Downing Published: October 2, 2013

A Tuscarawas County company is partnering with Aubrey McClendon, the one-time CEO of Chesapeake Energy Corp., to develop Utica shale natural gas wells in Harrison and Guernsey counties.

Joining in the new joint venture is Dover-based Red Hill Development and McClendon's American Energy-Utica.

The first well is planned in Harrison County.

Construction on the first well sites is expected to begin this month.

No permits have been sought yet.

Red Hill Development has about 600 vertical-only wells in four Ohio counties.

The company was established in 1975 by the Kimble family that also has a landfill and trash hauling-recycling operations in Northeast Ohio.
