CLAIRSVILLE - Chesapeake Energy is continuing to expand its Ohio operations with new office buildings at Fox Commerce Park near St. Clairsville and a $900 million natural gas processing complex in the works for Harrison and Columbiana counties.The driller, which leads West Virginia's Northern Panhandle in natural gas activity, is also becoming a major player in the Buckeye State. This is because of the valuable ethane, butane, propane and pentane that can be found in the Utica Shale underlying most of eastern Ohio.Construction workers are now erecting the buildings at Fox Commerce Park, west of St. Clairsville near the new Belmont County Fairgrounds. The office is on schedule to open by November, said Chesapeake spokesman Pete Kenworthy. Because the buildings will be located at the front of the industrial park - across from the FedEx structure at Fox Commerce - they should be viewable by those driving along Interstate 70.
