Marty Lagina, along with his brother Rick Lagina appear together on the popular show The Curse of Oak Island which appears on the History Channel.
Though this is a major source which contributes to Marty Lagina net worth, he is also a successful engineer and businessman, all of which contribute significantly to his income.
As of 2019, Marty Lagina net worth is $100 Million.
Marty Lagina was born in Kingsford, Michigan and has two other siblings.
The fact that he later became an engineer isn’t a surprise as he was probably inspired by his mother who was in the same profession and worked at an engineering company for several years.
After graduating from high school, he went on to study at Michigan University where he majored in engineering.
Career as an Engineer
Marty Lagina began his career as petroleum engineer with his first place of work being the Amoco Production Company. He soon became quite well known in the field.
What differentiates Lagina from other engineers though, was his ability to make a name for himself, while still being part of the engineering industry.
He basically did so by founding his company called Terra Energy Ltd. which later became the largest natural gas producing company in the area. His company focused on extracting natural gas from the Antrim shale in Michigan.
His company managed to achieve this feat, something which others had tried but weren’t successful in their endeavors.
Eventually, Marty Lagina sold his natural gas producing company and founded Heritage Sustainable Energy. This will also contribute to Marty Lagina’s net worth. However, it also aims to help the environment and better the energy crisis as well.
In an interview, Marty Lagina said that though he believes fossil fuels will never run out, he does believe the extraction is becoming increasingly difficult as the years go by.
To find a sustainable solution to this problem, he basically founded this new company which focuses on creating energy through wind turbines.
Through his company, he plans on planting around 60 wind turbines.
Marty Lagina also has a vineyard in Villa Marie, which produces red wine, another source of income for the energy expert.
