1990 in Crossville, Illinois, two hard working entrepreneurs, Donnie Wilson and Jeff Cantrell, were working in the oil fields of the Illinois basin, trying to clean up an oil pit with a skimmer that was picking up more water than oil. Frustrated, one of them made the comment that more oil could be recovered with a 5-gallon bucket than with the useless skimmer they were using. He threw a bucket into the oil. The bucket landed in the pit, spinning like a drum. Oil stuck to the bucket, leaving the water behind. It was a “Eureka” moment!
