Helping Clients With Their Energy and Environmental Needs


WV DEP Gearing Up

By Greg Russell

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection is gearing up to meet new Marcellus demands on the agency, according to this article in the Charleston Gazette:  "But the boom in the natural gas industry, Huffman said, it's hard for DEP to compete with private sector jobs that can be two or three times as much. Currently, state oil and gas inspectors make and average of $32,000 a year and their supervisors an average of $38,000, Huffman said. The legislation sets a minimum inspector's salary of $35,000 a year and a floor for oil and gas supervising staff of $40,000 annually."

Interesting.  We'll be seeing the same here in Ohio soon.
