GRAHAM – North Central Texas College will host an open house on the Graham campus for the community to see the new Petroleum Technology training facilities.
The open house is planned for 7 to 8 p.m., on Aug. 5 at the NCTC Graham campus. The event is open to anyone and refreshments will be provided.
With the help of federal and state grants along with donations from the Graham community, NCTC has spentmore than $250,000 on two training labs for the Petroleum Technology program on the Graham campus.
The outdoor lab includes an operating pumping unit, a vertical two-phase separator, a horizontal three-phase separator and two tanks.
The indoor lab has a variety of training equipment that provides students the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities that illustrate the fundamental principles of the petroleum industry.
“The resources made available to us through government grants and donations from the community have enabled us to assemble some exceptional equipment that will enhance the hands-on part of our program,” said Program Coordinator Malea Clarke. “These facilities are going to be a great benefit for our students, and we couldn’t have done it without help from the Graham community.”
Donations of equipment and/or services for the outdoor lab were received from Bettis, Boyle, & Stovall; Greco Services; Hawkins Pump & Supply; Hub Tool & Machine; Karper Oil & Gas Corp.; Oil City Supply, Inc.; Pitcock, Inc.; Randy’s Welding & Construction; Rowe Electric; and Wells Oilfield Services. The outdoor lab project was managed by Robert McMillan and Jimmy Rogers, both of Karper Oil & Gas Corp.
