The oil company run by /EllisWyatt.  Ellis Wyatt's father had squeezed a living out of the oil fields in /Colorado, but when Ellis Wyatt took over the business took off.  He discovered a technique for extracting oil from wells that had been abandoned as dried up.  The success of Wyatt Oil that followed this discovery suddenly and unexpectedly turned /Colorado into the leading economy in the country.

Wyatt Oil traditionally relied on /TaggartTranscontinental's /RioNorteLine to ship its oil.  But when that company could not grow fast enough to keep up with the booming /Colorado economy, Ellis Wyatt started using the small but well-managed /PhoenixDurango instead.  This prompted /JamesTaggart to make deals with his friends in /Washington to shut the /PhoenixDurango down.
