Oil & Gas

Proximity, supply chain, and customer access fuel growth-oriented oil-and-gas-related businesses.

The Northeast Ohio Region’s oil & gas industry is more resourceful than most.

The oil and gas industry grew 525% in Northeast Ohio between 2007 and 2019. The Northeast Ohio region is ideally situated near large oil and gas deposits in the Marcellus and Utica Point Pleasant Shale formations. The proximity to lucrative natural gas liquids (NGLs) in these formations, coupled with the strength of the region’s supply chain and outstanding access to customers, makes Northeast Ohio an ideal location for growth-oriented oil-and-gas-related businesses.

Ohio produces more than 4.2 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. From 2011 – 2016, approximately $51 billion was invested in building out Ohio’s shale value chain. As a result, both job growth and investments continue to gain momentum as domestic and global demand for natural gas, NGLs, and other end products continue to rise. Ohio’s shale and petrochemical production is driving investment and helping other industries grow.

Going the way of the dinosaur? Quite the opposite.

The Northeast Ohio Region’s manufacturing legacy is undeniable – anThe Northeast Ohio Region’s oil & gas industry has dramatically expanded over the past 15 years.
