Ohio Utica Shale

Ohio's Zane State College offering drilling training, facilities

By Bob Downing Published: February 10, 2013

From Bricker * Eckler's ShaleOhio blog: Through contributions from area businesses and the Energize Appalachian Ohio grant, construction of Zane State College’s Gas and Oil Engineering Technology Program’s outdoor land lab began last week, which will – upon its May 1 completion date – make Zane State College the “only oil and gas engineering technology program in Ohio that offers a hands-on simulated facility with actual oilfield equipment,” The Daily Jeffersonian reports.

The lab will feature equipment such as two 100-barrel storage tank batteries and an 18-foot-deep simulated well with a pump jack, which will utilize “fluids of similar consistency to crude without volatility risks” to ensure safety, the article said.
