TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Oil drilling has picked back up near Indiana State University.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources allowed Pioneer Oil four production wells.

They're near 10th and Chestnut Streets on university-owned properties.

Crews are currently drilling the fourth and final well at that site.

The agreement gives the university royalty payments.

That money is used for maintenance on the campus.
