I am a 25 year old military veteran looking to learn about the oil industry so that I can one day own an oil well.
I grew up near the Long Beach Oil Field in California. From a young age, I was fascinated by the rhythmic motions of the oil pumps. It wasn't until I was older that I realized how essential oil is to our country and world. Recently my curiosity in oil is financial in nature: long term income and a hedge against inflation.
I own no current finiancial interest in oil and although my property has mineral rights, there is no oil underneath (to my knowledge).
A recent job loss has made me reevaluate my career choice. I live in Southern California and have other sources of income that can allow me to work for little or no money, so long as I learn something useful! I am willing to travel anywhere if provided a place to sleep in exchange for work.
This may seem like an unusual request but hey, I'm an unusual guy!
