Chris’ story is one of opportunity – extended and accepted. The oil and natural gas company he works for as a liquid mud coordinator saw work ethic and rewarded it:

“My training is not in energy, engineering or science, but because I was willing to learn, was willing to work, they took me from having no skills to being someone who they’re not afraid to have train the new employees – people who are the future of this company.”

Chris is one of 9.2 million Americans working a job supported by the oil and natural gas industry. Check out his video:
