The Kessel team has been serving many areas of the oil and gas industry and commercial construction for 70 years. Our roots take us back to the Bradford oil fields when W. O. Kessel started by serving the petroleum industry back when both entities were new.

Our base of operations is Bradford, McKean County, PA and the surrounding North East Pennsylvania and Southern New York counties. We have built Corporate, Field Offices and Shops for several of the oldest and largest oil & gas producers in the area.

We have worked with mid stream gas producers and transmission companies for remote located compressor stations, processing plants, pump stations, meter houses and related needs. We typically operate as a Design Build, General Contractor or we can follow your plans and scope. Our geography places us in an ideal location to support activities in the Marcellus Shale play.
