Oil Drilling Underway at ISU

It may be winter break at ISU but it's a busy campus, as oil drilling is getting underway on Monday. A Pioneer Oil field service rig is in place at the site near 10th and Chestnut. Officials say they scheduled the start of the oil operation during winter break, to minimize the impact on students and staff.

Horizontal drilling will be used to reach oil and gas beneath the campus.
       
ISU's agreement with Pioneer Oil gives royalty payments of up to 15 percent for all products.
       
That money will go into a fund for deferred maintenance.
