The two schools will research the issues related to shale development, including the economic implications of natural gas and other hydrocarbons. They'll also study the possible impacts on the environment, local communities and public health.
The MOU acknowledges that research and education related to shale energy development is of high value to students, faculty, and the public. The two schools will exchange information and jointly explore funding of shale energy and related environmental studies before, during, and after the development of the Utica and Marcellus shale plays, including the possibility of developing shale energy field laboratories.
This is exciting news when you consider both the abundance of the shale formation inOhio and West Virginia. The weight of the research is sure to be reviewed and released over the course of the planned program, providing a better understanding of the benefits and drawbacks of the abundant energy source. Shale development already has given a significant economic boost to the region.
