This chapter examines Weetman Pearson's oil business in Mexico during the period from 1091 to 1019. It discusses his formation of El Aguila and describes the early difficulties he encountered in establishing his operations on a profitable footing. This chapter also argues that the assistance and encouragement given by the Mexican government was crucial not only in establishing Pearson's oil business but also in sustaining it during its difficult early years.
