OKLAHOMA CITY -

One year ago, Cathedral Energy Services brought just two employees to Oklahoma City. Based out of Canada, with offices in Denver, Cathedral looks to make a bigger footprint in OKC, making it the company's permanent home.

This location won't be just clumps of dirt for long.

"It gives us access to the west Texas market," said Cathedral G.M. Neil Schappert.

And they're using a relationship with Chesapeake Energy as a platform.

"We supply down hole drilling tools and personal for drilling. What we do for Chesapeake they sub contract us to go to the sites."

Cathedral Energy Services specializes in horizontal and directional drilling tools. Three sites in Oklahoma are already under Cathedral's supervision, which US General Manager Neil Schappert feels is a good start.

"With the current market trend, we feel we are better served being in an area that is mostly oil," said Schappert.

Just three weeks ago Cathedral Energy submitted this commercial building permit to build right here just off SW 44th St. The project is estimated at over $4 million.

"By the time we open the new facility we hope to be up around 75," said Schappert.

Cathedral won't just need more employees, they will also need raw materials as well.

"[We'll need a] machine shop. Tubular steel, specialized fine machinery," said Schappert. "All the supplies we need for our tools we try to buy local. We support local businesses."

Cathedral Energy hopes to break ground on the new site in the first week of December, with hopes of a completion date of Sept. 2014.
