I was born in the oil boom! Been in the oil & gas buisness my whole life. Started out pumping, pulling units & drilling rigs in high school. After high school, I went to college & got a degree in industrial electronics. I worked for Enogex in college (largest natural gas company in Oklahoma). After graduating from college, I went to work for Phillips 66. After 7 years we merged with Conoco. Spent 13 years with the two of them. I quit 5 years ago & went back to Enogex. I get 5 weeks vacation & 15 paid holidays. The pay & benefits are both good. I also raise cattle, horses, mules & relief pump a couple a days a month. If you don't mind moving to western ND, Hiland Partners are paying well for hands in the oil & gas fields. Plus it gets you closer to Wyoming & Montana (awesome hunting).
