Marietta Student Chapter Visits Drake’s Well

On April 10 and 11th, a group of Marietta College Society of Petroleum Engineers visited the Drake Well Museum. The chapter was shown a short video about Drake’s well and how it indicated the beginning of the modern petroleum industry in Titusville, Pennsylvania in 1859.

Along with visiting Drake’s well, the student chapter attended a Universal Well Services Hydraulic Fracturing seminar.  The topic of the seminar was the drilling and production process in the industry.
