This began in 2014 with ProActive Services (Compressor Operations and Pigging Services). Starett Energy Services (General Operations & Maintenance Services) was added in 2015, followed by Appalachian Production Services (Well Tending and Production Services) in 2016, and Katko (Well Hook-ups/Installation and Fabrication Services) in 2017. ShalePro now has more than 300 employees servicing the industry across the Appalachian Basin, as well as in shale plays across the country.

ShalePro has a combined history of operating in the industry for 20+ years and we are continuing that service of excellence today as one combined, and even stronger, brand.
