Letter from the Executive President Dear members, neighbors, and friends: We are pleased to share with you the excitement of our new ‘double front’ magazine featuring ‘Southpointe Magazine’ and ‘Racetrack Road Business Association’. This double cover magazine will be placed in the hotel rooms on Racetrack Road, Southpointe and surrounding communities. We will continue to place the magazine in 60 building lobbies and 280 companies in Southpointe. This is the right message to the decision makers. It’s all about connecting not just large circulation numbers when distributing a magazine. We recently realized, thanks to our online social media reports, our magazine past issues have had over 10,000 viewers click with an average stay of 2.5 minutes. This shows that online readership has exceeded our print readers. We also realize that the high gloss, full color publication is a welcoming opportunity to just sit over a cup of coffee and glance thru the articles and ads. Many have asked: Why start the Racetrack Road Association? Racetrack Road with the casino, restaurants, concerts, new “Park Place” and “The Street” construction is a great adjunct to Southpointe. With new hotels on Racetrack Road and at the I-79 Houston Exit, the gaps are being filled in to become one great experience. All are within a 10 minute drive of Southpointe. Make sure you send news articles to our editors desk, and send advertising requests to As always, we would love to have breakfast, lunch or cocktails with you to discuss your business and how the Southpointe Marcellus Shale chamber can help you grow. Contact don@southpointe or 724-873-7777 Thank you,

Don Hodor

Business Updates

Ness Technologies expands offices into Southpointe

Ness Technologies, a global developer of software, has moved to a new facility at 1000 Town Center Way, Southpointe. They will expand the offices this year to occupy the entire second floor of the building. Ness Vice President, Tony Dodds, said the company expects to build up to a staff of around 200 software developers in the Southpointe office within the next three years. While Ness has big financial services and consulting firms like S&P and Deloitte Consulting as clients, Dodds said it also does work with companies with a huge online presence, including Google, Paypal and eBay. He said the Southpointe office will perform work amongst a group of key clients. Ness’s arrival here came at the request of one of its clients, New York-based Standard & Poor’s Corp. The company said its work here will compliment its verticals in the financial services, ISV and other industries. One of Ness’ key clients, S&P wanted Ness to locate the center somewhere requiring only a short flight from New York that was in the same time zone. In addition to the area being an economically reasonable place to do business when com-

pared to other regions, one of the other major selling points from PRA was the Pittsburgh region’s pool of highly skilled talent with 35 colleges and universities in the immediate area. Southpointe being located in a lower tax-based county is ideal for software companies to bring employees who are interested in the total living package. Lower real estate prices, lower county taxes, new road infrastructure coupled with well planned shopping, service and food facilities makes this one of the best areas to raise a family. Privately held Ness has nearly 7,000 employees servicing customers in more than 20 countries.

In the first quarter of 2013 Burns & Scalo Real Estate Services (BSRES) closed seven deals at Southpointe with both new and existing tenants in a wide range of industries from the gas energy business to those in finance, technology and manufacturing. Continuing the development of Southpointe, BSRES will begin construction in the summer on a campusstyle environment recently named Zenith Ridge that consists of three new buildings. Ready for occupancy in late 2014 will be two 150,000 square feet (SF) LEED and Class-G certified buildings plus the new 186,000 SF headquarters for ANSYS Inc., a build-to-suit office building. So far this year at Southpointe, the successful mixeduse economic development park just off I-79 near Canonsburg, Burns & Scalo Real Estate Services (BSRES) has set a brisk pace for leasing space to a wide variety of businesses while also preparing to construct a campus-style environment - called Zenith Ridge - consisting of three new buildings one of which is the new headquarters for ANSYS, Inc. When asked about the recent increased BSRES activity at Southpointe, Kelley Hoover, Director of Brokerage Services, replied, “Since 1994, we have built, owned and managed more than 1 million square feet of space in Southpointe more than any other single developer. With all these relationships, I get a look at all the deals that flow through Southpointe so I know who has what to offer and when.” In the first three months of 2013, BSRES closed seven deals in Southpointe exceeding company records for total square footage closed in the first quarter. A variety of companies is racing to get established in their

new Southpointe quarters. Two new tenants for The Fountainhead building include NVR, Inc., the parent company of a home builder and mortgage company and Ayco Company, a Goldman Sachs financial counseling firm who is also renovating their suite. Strata Worldwide, a global leader in mine safety solutions, leased space at 130 Technology Drive while BalTec, Inc., a manufacturer of joining equipment, has relocated to 121 Hillpointe Drive. Noble Energy, a leading independent energy company, continues to expand and grow by taking new space at 121 Hillpointe Drive in addition to its original office at Stealth Technology Center. And Linc/ ABM, a facility-services company, expanded into space at Stealth II Technology Center. Being one of the early developers with a vision for Southpointe, BSRES now has the last new construction site in Southpointe Phase II and recently named it Zenith Ridge. This summer they will begin executing its plan for a campusstyle environment consisting of three new buildings. Two will be 150,000 SF LEED and Class-G certified buildings - one suitable for a corporate headquarters while the second building will be for multiple tenants, the smaller firms that tend to support the area’s larger industrial companies. The third building is the 186,000 SF build-to-suit office space for ANSYS Inc., a global leader in simulation software. All three buildings will be ready for occupants by late 2014.

Pet Sitting… Not the Average Babysitter The term “Pet Sitter” is often misinterpreted. It’s not simply hiring someone to hang out with your pet at home while you go to a movie or to run errands. Pet sitting offers much more with many options. Pet sitting is designed to put the owner and the pet at ease! While you work long hours, a caring responsible sitter is needed to check in and give your pet some TLC. Going out of town and do not want to place your pet in a kennel environment? Home pet sitting is a perfect fit. It puts you at ease since your pet is not home alone experiencing stress and separation anxiety. This gives you the freedom to stay at work, visit the gym or stop by at happy hour. It is also for people who do not have the extra time or physical ability to take pets on long walks. Many pet sitters offer a visiting service to your home once or twice a day to give your pet a potty break, food, and some playtime. The visits usually range from a minimum of 20 minutes for basic feeding and potty time with an hour option for longer walks and extra play time. You may think your dog is fine for 8+ hours home alone with food and water. Think of your pet waiting at home staring at the back of the door all day, watching for you to come home and greet him every hour of the day. Feel guilty yet? Pets experience stress

and anxiety just like humans. His tail may be wagging but he had a stressful day waiting. When your pet is home alone he may act up by purposely going to the bathroom inside for attention, or clawing up that fresh coat of paint on the door. Nobody is happy with this situation so it is best to avoid it altogether. Going out of town? Many pet sitters offer the option to stay overnight at your home. This takes the stress of a kennel out of the equation. Kennels may also have parasites and diseases due to high pet traffic. Recently a Pittsburgh kennel had to close for a week due to a virus infecting many of the boarded pets. Many pets are not crate trained and simply love to sleep in a favorite spot; therefore, this type of overnight pet sitting allows the pet to continue to snooze on a couch instead of a concrete kennel floor. It will also be more convenient to call/text the pet sitter directly to see how your baby is doing. Pet sitting also stops crime! With a pet sitter frequenting the house while out of town deters crime-seekers from coming around. Pet sitters will get your mail, pickup the newspaper and water plants. What are the downsides of hiring a pet sitter? You may

EIA Says Worldwide Shale Oil And Gas Potential Is Huge

A surge in oil and gas production from shale rock has transformed energy in the United States, helping reverse declines in oil production and prompting a massive shift from coal to natural gas electricity production that has led to a significant drop in carbon dioxide emissions (since burning coal releases more carbon dioxide than burning natural gas). A new report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration lends support to the idea that a similar transformation could

take place outside the United States. The map gives a sense of just how widespread oil and gas resources are. The EIA report concludes that Russia has even more technically recoverable shale oil than the United States. Three countries have more shale gas—China, Argentina, and Algeria. Geologists have long known that some shale deposits contain large amounts of oil and gas, but it’s only recently that hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling technology have made it feasible to extract. While other countries may have more of these resources than the United States, the impact in some of them may not be as great, or happen as quickly. It could take many years to develop resources in other countries because the geology is somewhat different—the techniques that work in the United States might not quite work elsewhere. What’s more, many countries don’t have the needed technological expertise.

Marcellus Turns Pennsylvania Into ‘Saudi Arabia’ of Natural Gas

Men work on a natural gas valve at a hydraulic fracturing site in South Montrose, Pa. Published: Wednesday, 8 May 2013 | 2:30 PM ET By: Javier E. David Special to Pennsylvania – currently famous for Philadelphia cheese steaks, Hershey’s chocolate and ketchup – is in the midst of a transformation that may yet put the state on the map for another American staple: natural gas. The Marcellus Shale, a 600-mile formation brimming with natgas, is wedging itself into the conversation of the U.S. energy boom, to the Keystone State’s benefit. Last week, energy giant Chevron announced a plan to purchase 61 acres of land around Pittsburgh – one of several Western Pennsylvania communities targeted for Marcellus development – which the company may use as a new regional headquarters. That purchase came on the heels of Chevron’s 2011 $3.8 billion purchase of Atlas Energy and its 622,000 acres in the Marcellus Shale. Although the Marcellus cuts across six adjacent states that include Ohio, Virginia, and New York, it is the Keystone State that’s harnessing the formation to reap a windfall in jobs and investment. In a recent study, Deloitte and Touche said Marcellus “is projected to dominate the Mid-Atlantic natural gas market.” The consulting firm added that other regions like the Gulf Coast and the suddenly hot Bakken region in North Dakota “may face stiff competition” as Marcellus is poised to churn out more than 7 billion cubic feet of shale gas per day. (Read more: Bakken Emerges as Contender for US Oil Drilling Crown) “We literally have the Saudi Arabia of natural gas under our feet,” said Michael Krancer, a lawyer who heads Blank Rome’s energy practice and who is also a former Pennsylvania secretary of environmental protection. The state’s

production numbers surged by 69 percent in 2012 versus the prior year, and gas exploration jobs that have risen over 80 percent over the same time frame, Krancer said, calling Marcellus’ potential “prodigious. The production numbers are off the charts.” Environmental concerns have led to moratoriums on drilling in other Marcellus states, or less aggressive moves to tap the shale bounty. Yet observers say Pennsylvania’s lengthy experience with resource development makes it fertile ground for production. The state “has a history of natural resource development: coal mining in particular,” said Susan Christopherson, professor of urban planning at Cornell University and the author of a study examining the unfolding regulatory and legislative framework of Marcellus production. “A place that has experience with this, like Texas, is more likely to support it.” Marcellus is frequently mentioned as a linchpin of a revamped U.S. energy policy, one that provides more jobs and buttresses security. Yet Christopherson cast doubt on how much benefit communities can get from the Marcellus boom.

Pet Sitting Continued from Page 18

feel uncomfortable with a stranger coming into your home. Meet the sitter at your home first and check references. Another negative may be the price. Most pet sitting is more costly than a typical overnight at the kennel. There are so many advantages to pet sitting that make the price worth it. A trip to the vet for an infection from a kennel can cost much more. You cannot put a price on the love for your pet! Pet sitters offer a discount for multiple bookings for more than one pet. How do you hire a pet sitter? Choose a professional pet sitter with insurance and experience with references. You never like to think something bad will happen, but it is always best to be prepared and go with a sitter who has an emergency plan and insurance to back it up. Check if the pet sitter has pet emergency training. For more information and ideas for your pet, contact Christie at 724-413-5136 Pictured is“Gracie” editing the latest magazine

CONSOL Energy Water Division March 26, 2013 CONSOL Energy, through its subsidiary CNX Water Assets LLC, is exploring multiple opportunities to leverage its existing water resources. The company treats over 34 billion gallons of water each year, and the water division enables the company to focus more attention on a wide variety of operational objectives as well as increasing our awareness of the environment and the need to develop alternative methods of utilizing, protecting and treating water. In 2012, CNX Water Assets LLC was created as a vehicle to develop water related services, evaluate emerging treatment technologies, champion the reuse of treated mine water and pursue a strategic approach to water asset management. Our strategic vision includes providing our treated mine water to industrial customers and using our extensive resources and expertise to evaluate and develop cutting edge water technologies, while deploying state of the art treatment methodologies to ensure that our discharges are properly managed and compliant with existing regulations. Ultimately,

this approach will lead to a more focused liability reduction strategy and provide a model of environmental management for the future. CNX Water Assets LLC represents another step in the company’s 150 year history and its transformation into a diversified fuel producer. It will increase our ability to influence water use policy in our company and our business segments and serves as a driver to begin the process of evaluating, with the goal of reducing our water-related environmental liabilities and enable CONSOL Energy to operate in a more sustainable manner over the next 150 years.

Mystery Diner Stops at Rumfish Grill I was given the assignment to visit the newly opened Rumfish Grille. This restaurant is located in the Great Southern Shopping Center just off the Collier exit on I-79. When walking in, you are struck with an unusual dÊcor – not like the typical restaurant. The areas are very open. Guests can see and flow from the raw bar, dining area and cocktail bar. A nice touch is the bar overlooking the kitchen area. This gives you a feel for the talents of the chefs working on specialty dishes. The menu is unique. For $19 you can select from a dozen protein selections ranging from fish to steak. Then go to the starch selections, vegetables and then top it off with a sauce selection. Sauces are all in-house tasty recipes. The finishing touches are being completed with the outside waterfall that opens with large overhead doors. This is truly a vacation experience. I highly recommend this venue for reasonable prices, excellent selection and service. A must on your dining list. Open for lunch and dinner. Call 412-914-8013

Worldwide Shale continued from Pg.22 Some countries make it difficult for companies to set up and find ways to exploit the resources. What’s more, the United States had a lot of spare natural gas generating capacity, which made it easy to switch from coal to natural gas. In a place like China, where energy demand is quickly growing, there’s little spare capacity. Natural gas production might only serve to slightly slow the growth of electricity from coal plants, not reverse it. So far, the impact of increased shale gas production has been limited outside the United States. Because natural gas is relatively expensive to export and requires the construction of specialized infrastructure, prices for natural gas have fallen sharply inside the United States, but not outside the country. But it has had one impact: increased natural gas production in the U.S. has led to increases in coal consumption elsewhere. Unlike natural gas, coal is relatively easy to export. When demand for it dropped in the U.S., it was shipped abroad, lowering coal prices and contributing to an increase in coal use—and carbon dioxide emissions.

Marcellus Turns continued from Pg.28 “Some of these municipalities are going to get tax revenue… but this isn’t like manufacturing where you put in a plant and people go to work,” she said. “The economic impacts of these kinds of things are uneven, and there’s a boom-bust cycle to them.” She added that while many workers associated with Marcellus projects may work in the region, they may channel money to other areas where they either maintain residences, or spend their leisure time. That includes states like New York and New Jersey, which aren’t involved in shale gas production right now. “When you look at jobs development, you don’t look at where the activity is. You look at where people are spending money,” Christopherson said. However, that hasn’t stopped companies from making major investments, or touting the economic benefits of Marcellus exploration. Two years ago, Royal Dutch Shell plunked down $4.7 billion on a company active in the region, and is building an ethane production hub using Marcellus shale. At the time, Shell’s president Marvin Odum said the company’s activities would “create more American jobs.” Blank Rome’s Krancer said that Marcellus “is at the sunrise of this [energy] renaissance. This is going to be just the beginning of an economic juggernaut for the US and Pennsylvania.”

Go to and click on ‘Video TV news’ to watch interviews. A special thanks goes to Dennis Noonan, President, NEI. The conference focused on reducing reliance on oil imports and products. Industry leaders came together to discuss the opportunities and subsequent barriers to energy independence.

Companies attending included Chesapeake Energy, Range Resources, Acme Power Systems, Energy from Thorium Foundation, Coalition of Freedom, Capitol Integrity Group, J Connors & Company, Cleveland Brothers, Southpointe Chamber of Commerce and Shale Media Group among others. The Honorable Tom Ridge, President and CEO of Ridge Global, Former Governor of Pennsylvania, and First Secretary U.S. Homeland Security focused on exporting and why it is an important part of America’s natural gas domestic


initiative. “We can be more engaged in American energy security if we export our abundant supply of resources,” stated Ridge. The lineup was followed by a reception and elegant dinner highlighted by Herman Cain, CEO and Co-Founder, Job Creators Network and Former Presidential Candidate. “Each recognized the potential role they can play to help transform us back into a U.S. innovative engine,” explained Jim Smith, West Virginia University Professor and Director of the Center for Industrial Research Applications.
