Drillers, Frackers Fill Up Commerce Park
Belmont County Looking at New Development

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – As sand and cement trucks surround the new Stingray Pressure Pumping office at Fox Commerce Park, Sue Douglass knows Belmont County needs more land for development.

The 125-acre industrial park west of St. Clairsville is now full, thanks in part to the burgeoning oil and natural gas industry.

Located near the south end of the park, Stingray is an oilfield services company that opened earlier this year. Chesapeake Energy and Great Plains Oilfield Rental have offices at the north end of the development.

“These companies are coming in here looking to do business,” said Douglass, Belmont County Community Improvement Corp. and Department of Development director. “They want to get in place so they can go to work as quickly as possible.”

According to the trade journal Oil & Gas Investor, Stingray is 50 percent owned by Gulfport Energy.

Many eastern Ohio residents who originally signed leases with Wishgard LLC or Tri-Star Energy have seen those contracts turned over to Gulfport, while Gulfport has also signed many county landowners to leases on its own.

Some property owners have received as much as $5,900 per acre in lease agreements, with as much as 20 percent of the production royalties.
