A few of my boys and I are considering starting one of those oil refineries like Exxon, Shell, or BP and all that other jazz. Figuring that oil will be booming for a few more years at least, why not throw our rocks in the pond?
We’ve done a little reading and found some oil reserves.
So what’s the best?
Anyone have any experience with this kinda thing?
Any help is appreciated.[/quote]

If you could get the permits to build a refinery(give up now), it would cost you at a minimum about $2 billion for a basic refinery that does production level output.
That said, if you wanted to make a small oil refinery for just a few thousand gallons a year of processed fuel oil you are still talking tens of millions dollars.
Small oil refineryies only make money producing special materials such as jet fuel, rocket fuel, bio-medical plastic precursors etc.
If you really want to make money working in/for a refinery then get yourself setup as a 3rd party contractor doing confined space cleanup, welding, refractory, or machining. Again, that said, good luck, refineries are crazy pro Union and closed loop systems, if your foot isn’t already in the door you are locked out.
