Geology 350 - The Oil and Gas of Geology spending a beautiful day in Shreve.

Drs. Judge and Wiles are teaching a half credit course in The Geology of Oil and Gas. After weeks of well log interpretation, rock core description and interpretive contour mapping exercises the class caught a break and traveled to the Miller Oil and Gas Museum on a beautiful February day in Shreve Ohio. We are grateful to the Raymond’s for showing us around the museum and explaining the use of the some of the equipment.
