Baker Hughes Inc., an oil and natural gas services company based in Houston, said Thursday it is hiring an unspecified number of skilled laborers for its new $16 million repair and maintenance center in Hempfield, Westmoreland County.

The 57,000-square-foot facility will support natural gas drilling and production in the Marcellus shale reserves in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, said spokeswoman Kathy Shirley.

About 75 people so far work at the Hempfield center, part of a $250 million investment Baker Hughes is making to support its Marcellus operations, the company said.
