HURRICANE IDA’S IMPACT ON THE OIL INDUSTRY, ENERGY SUPPLY AND GAS PRICES
JAY R. YOUNG is the Founder and CEO of King Operating Corporation, a privately-held, Dallas-based oil and gas operator and has a lifelong passion for the oil and gas business.
His family has been in the business for over one hundred years. King’s business model is designed to minimize risk by acquiring and developing in areas with a long history of producing oil and gas. Mr. Young and his associates developed a unique method for the oil and gas business to acquire scalable assets in a proven field, utilize equity to start and debt to prove up the field and divest to a larger company. When he is not busy developing oil and gas projects, Jay hosts his own podcast, The Jay Young Show and is a new Forbes Book author with his recently published book, The Upside of Oil & Gas Investing. Young graduated with a BBA degree from Angelo State University in 1985 and now serves its Foundation Board. He participates in local and national philanthropic organizations, such as the Executive Board of Directors for Circle Ten Council (Boy Scouts of America) and The Alzheimer’s Association North Texas Chapter. Complimenting his professional endeavors, his wife Michelle and four daughters represent focal points in his life pursuits. An avid Texas Rangers fan and former partial-owner, Mr. Young has fond memories of the MLB team’s run for the World Series in 2010 and 2011.
