BJ Services, a Texas-based oil and gas company, is preparing to move out of Clarksburg.
Company officials said the operation on Philippi Pike is being moved to Mill Hall, Pa., which is north of State College.
Officials also said that all of the Clarksburg employees have been offered the chance to stay with the company.
They expect the transition to Pennsylvania to happen over the next three months.
Company officials issued a statement Tuesday:
“BJ Services will be relocating operations from Clarksburg, W.Va. to Mill Hall, Pa. to better support our growing business in the Marcellus and Utica basins. Clarksburg is a wonderful city, and we are grateful to have been a part of the community. Our team in Clarksburg has been foundational to the success of BJ Services. We have offered each of our Clarksburg employees an opportunity to remain with the company, with the transition expected to take approximately three months. We look forward to continuing to serve customers throughout the northeast U.S. and expand our operations through the opening of our state-of-the-art Mill Hall service center.”
