While many consultants are scrambling to support the booming Marcellus and Utica shale gas plays, DMS Environmental Services have all the necessary pieces in place to provide full support for natural gas resource development. Our professional group includes a petroleum engineer, a petroleum geologist, geologists and hydrogeologists, all of whom have grown-up and received their educations in the heart of the Marcellus play.
