Our publications featuring the UK are part of a series in which we identify, characterize and assess the strengths of key industries, country by country. Each publication is typically divided into two sections: editorial, covering the history, recent developments and technology of the sector, and commercial, presenting many of the companies that made it all possible.
The aim is to generate direct inquiries to our profiled companies while enhancing their brand image. In the process, we also help you find the companies you are looking for, pinpoint the business information you need... and highlight your own company so that others will find you.
We attend all the major international industry exhibitions and trade fairs, where we hand out thousands of our beautifully produced books for free – a most effective way of targeting the important people that our profiled companies want us to reach. Our books are also distributed free of charge to chambers of commerce, embassies, industry organizations, government, and more... and are of course always accessible in electronic form at this website, together with links to all our clients.

In 2010, the country was still the largest producer of oil and second-largest producer of natural gas in the European Union, while the sector contributed more than £14 billion to government revenues and supported some 450,000 jobs.
