Nicholls opens new petroleum services lab

The American Association of Drilling Engineers Computer Simulation and Distance Education Lab, located in 401 Gouaux Hall at Nicholls State University, opened in fall 2009.

Petroleum Services Funded by an $80,000 grant from AADE – as well as a grant from the Louisiana Board of Regents – the lab enhances hands-on experience for petroleum services students through computer lab simulation exercises embedded into existing drilling, production and safety technology courses.
