OSU To Study Shale Energy

Feb 12, 2013

Ohio State University and West Virginia University say they've signed a memorandum of understanding to develop a joint program on shale energy research.

The research will look at the economic implications of natural gas and other hydrocarbons and the impact on the environment, local communities and public health. Officials say the schools will exchange information and jointly explore funding of shale energy and related environmental studies, including the possibility of developing shale energy field laboratories.
