NE Ohio college plans oil-gas training site

Posted: Updated:

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - Northeast Ohio's Stark State College plans to build an oil and natural-gas training site in Canton.

The college will install a pump jack and well head, tanks, a separator and other equipment on what now is a parking lot.

According to The (Canton) Repository (bit.ly/1aGgeR9), the complex will be part of an energy institute with indoor labs and the outdoor equipment.

The training site will cost $1.3 million.

The college offers three associate degrees through its oil and gas training program.

The region sits amid shale formations that have spawned a growing oil and natural gas industry.
