The Marcellus Shale formation in Pennsylvania saw a little bit of action over the last week, along with the U.S.’s largest publicly traded water and wastewater utility company.
American Water Works Company announced last week that it has officially acquired Keystone Clearwater Solutions. The Hershey, Pennsylvania-based company is a water service provider that offers a wide range of water services to the energy industry, specifically oil and gas companies. Keystone’s customers are mainly located in the Appalachian region, which is located throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.
According to American Water, the acquisition helps it achieve its goal of developing complementary businesses. Paired with the company’s already existing shale activity, Keystone will allow American Water to enhance its ability to provide additional water services solutions to shale development related companies.
