Energy Design and Permitting

LDG’s Energy Division was created in 2010 and supports clients in PA, OH, WV, and TX. Prior to 2010, LDG focused on supporting unconventional oil and gas clients in the Appalachian Basin. Our strategic office locations allow us to deliver services to our client base in a safe, responsive, and cost-effective manner. We have developed collaborative working relationships with federal, state, and local regulatory staff in all of the areas where we operate and we support our energy clients through active participation in industry associations.
