Drill baby drill, Luvata talks continue, North Forest Office likes Rochester...

From Business Today:

Drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus shale region of Pennsylvania is just too lucrative to resist. National Fuel Gas Co. announced it will boost its investment in the drilling by 18 percent next year. They will mean up to 140 new horizontal wells at a cost of up to $800 million. As the gas come in, it should help keep rates down.

The members of the United Steelworkers at the Luvata plant in Military Road in Buffalo has not settled their contract negotiations yet. The current contract expires at the end of Thursday. The union represents about 450 workers at the plant, which has not had a strike since 1984. The company said talks are continuing.

North Forest Office Space is building in Rochester. The company is putting  up buildings at two of its five Rochester area office parks. In all, the firm has 280,000 square feet of space in the Rochester area.
