Michael K. Hurst Comments on the Importance of Knowing the Oil & Gas Regulatory Landscape in Rigzone

Now could be the right time for the aggressive entrepreneur to pursue an oil and gas start-up, and the firm’s Michael K. Hurst says there is a solid core of industry sources prepared to make smart moves in the current market. “I think you’ve got – at this point in time – a lot more people that know what they’re doing, as opposed to people that just say, ‘Hey, oil prices are high, I want to get into the business,’” he says in a recent interview with Rigzone.

I’ve seen some of my entrepreneurial clients be very successful just by having the right mentors.”
