Supply Chain Cos. Getting Whacked by Shale Drilling Slowdown

Yesterday MDN brought you an article about the supply chain in Ohio–companies that sell goods and services to upstream (drilling), midstream (pipeline) and downstream (petrochemical) companies (see Ohio’s Non-Drilling Counties Look to Profit from Utica Shale Too). That article talked about businesses located in counties just west of the Utica shale in Ohio and whether or not they can get in on some of the economic action. We spotted another story, this one in the Wall Street Journal, about supply chain companies serving the oil and gas industry. If yesterday’s article was the positive/up side of supply chain, the WSJ article is the flip side–the down side of depending too much on our cyclical industry.
