How To Become An Oil Partner

by Antonin Fontai

If you choose to become an oil partner, you are essentially deciding to invest money in the oil company of your choice in exchange for being in charge of a service station that they help you build. This service station can be enormously lucrative. Although each company is different, here are the general steps that you will need to take in order to make sure that you can become an oil partner.

1. Gather Investment Capital

First, you are going to need to gather investment capital. This is usually a fairly large sum of money and it varies from oil company to oil company. Talk to the company in which you want to invest in order to get the exact figure. Then, start talking to your investors. This can be a great way for your company to ally with a larger company, allowing it to get its name out there. Because of the numerous benefits of becoming an oil partner, from being supported by the oil company to the oil revenue of the service station, you should have a relatively easy time pitching the idea to investors who will them be able to get you the investment capital.

2. Get a Timeline

You don't necessarily need to own your own land in order to become an oil partner, but it often help because you won't have to worry about talking to the person from which you are leasing the land about changes that are going to have to be made. It will also make the timeline move much more quickly. Get an exact timeline from the oil company of what they need from you, whether it's helping them prepare the site, building the office building from where the service station will be run, or getting the parking lot ready. Getting a timeline will allow you to plan ahead and make sure that you have the funds to complete each of the operations, as well as show your investors when needs to be done in order to hold yourself accountable.

3. Take Training Classes

Finally, as the preparation of the service station draws to a close, you and your employees are going to need to take extended service classes from the oil company in order to make sure that you know how to run an oil company and that nothing goes wrong. You might have to take these training classes onsite.
