Fracking support company looks to set up shop in Kirkwood
|Rain for Rent, a fracking-support company from California, plans to open a branch in Kirkwood to be in the thick of Marcellus Shale development.|
Plans call for a distribution and maintenance center for rental equipment, including tanks and pumps, for crews producing natural gas from the Marcellus Shale. The gas-rich formation, heralded as a major future domestic energy source, runs from the Southern Tier through the Appalachian Basin.
