The natural gas boom brought with it a boom of sorts in out-of-state license plates as operators tapped into the expertise of employees from energy hubs such as Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. Zelienople oil well company Deep Well Services is changing that. One of the things the company prides itself on is its local affiliation. Sixty percent of its 91 employees are from Appalachia — meaning Pennsylvania or West Virginia. “We’re locally based. A lot of people — companies — operate out of here, but they’re from other parts of the country or the world,” Deep Well’s President Mark Marmo said. “That’s a key point for us,“ added John Sabo, the company’s chief operating officer. And the company is on the hunt for more workers as its jobs and profits expand. The company anticipates a profit increase of 258 percent for the 2014 fiscal year and total revenue of approximately $25 million, Mr. Marmo said. The private company’s revenue grew from $7.2 million in 2012 to $14.2 million last year.
