Pickens founded Mesa Petroleum and built it into one of the largest independent natural gas and oil companies in the United States before he departed the company in 1996. Since then, Pickens has founded BP Capital, a successful energy investment fund. He has also launched a five-year initiative known as the Pickens Plan, a plan to address the national security and economic risks associated with the United States' dependence of OPEC oil.
