From the Ohio Oil and Gas Association:
Recently, on a cool Saturday morning OOGA President David Hill and I took students from the geology programs of Muskingum University and Kent State University on a series of oilfield site visits. The idea behind the trip came from a couple of talks David and I gave at Kent State (my alma mater) and Muskingum (David’s alma mater) awhile back. At the conclusion of the discussion and questions the idea of showing the students what was happening in the field was an opportunity neither they nor us could pass up. This is the second time we have hosted this trip. The first was just with Kent State, while this year we were able to add Muskingum. Hopefully from here, it continues to grow.
We started with visiting a PDC Energy Utica Shale production pad just on the outskirts of Senecaville in the heart of both Guernsey County and the shale gas play. David was able to show the students how the well was put into production, the equipment on site to manage that production as well as the state of the art technology used to make it all work.Click here to read more.
