How To Invest In Oil

Log Library, Abilene Texas

There are several books that are recommended reading to educate you on how deals are structured, and how to evaluate a prospect, without getting too wrapped up in the technical side of oil exploration and extraction. Here’s a selection of a few good ones to start with, I’ve provided you with direct links to Amazon:

Come Drill A Well In My Backyard – Vincent Scoper Jr
Money In The Ground – John Orban III
Investing In Oil & Gas, the ABC’s of DPP’s – Kathy Heshelow
Non Technical Guide to Petroleum Geology, Exploration, Drilling, and Production – Norman.J.Hyne

Call me or drop me a line after you’ve read a few and let me know what you think.
