In an age of free information, decision-makers need impartial, reliable and rigorous sifting of fact from fiction. They need solid analysis of essential data, presented in a way that makes it quick to absorb. They need genuine intelligence from high-risk areas of the world. They will find all this in Petroleum Economist.
We’ve written about oil, its politics, and economics since 1934 and explained some of the industry’s biggest disruptions – such as the 1973 oil crisis, the Gulf Wars, the rise of China, the Arab uprisings, and the more recent supply-side shocks from North America’s unconventional energy sector.
Petroleum Economist has covered the booms and busts in the oil price – we stuck our neck out and called the latest crash before others. We always look ahead, draw on our long experience to spot emerging trends. In a period of change for the industry – influenced by everything from Opec policy to UN climate summits – Petroleum Economist remains the indispensable authority on energy.
We put people on the ground to cover the biggest stories. Petroleum Economist has reported from war zones in the Middle East and North Africa, countless Opec meetings, remotest Siberia and northern Canada, the Orinoco, East Africa, Borneo and Papua New Guinea. We take on difficult stories in tricky places where the risks are great – and the need to understand them paramount.
Petroleum Economist is printed monthly, with a website updated daily, and an app which is available for download from iTunes and the Google Store.
