ISU considering oil drilling on campus
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- The high price of oil could drive Indiana State University officials to allow an oil company to drill beneath ISU’s Terre Haute campus.
The Illinois-based Pioneer Oil would explore, drill, produce and move any oil and gas resources it finds, and a discovery wouldn't be that farfetched.
ISU is within the Illinois Basin, an area covering Western Indiana, Southern Illinois, and Western Kentucky.
It contains both oil and gas fields.
