“Upstream’s business philosophy is to generate and distribute quality independent news and insight on the global oil and gas industry through whatever channel — hardcopy, electronic or other — is deemed appropriate, and to do so in a sustainable and profitable manner.”
Upstream has, since its launch in 1996, firmly established it self as the World’s leading news source in the international oil and gas industry. Our policy is to relentlessly pursue accurate, exclusive and independent news coverage of the entire upstream oil and gas industry in every corner of the globe. The focus is on business, policy and the key players. The daring news content is supported each week by features and profiles offering an inside view of the issues and the people that make a difference in the industry.
Other respected publications have also taken notice, with the Los Angeles Times stating: “The flamboyant trade weekly Upstream has become a must-read both for its bold irreverent style and its thorough coverage”. This was followed by praise from the New York Times: “For energy executives, Upstream has become a must-read, like Advertising Age or Variety or American Lawyer in their respective fields”.
Upstream is clearly a publication favoured by management with 96% of its readers classing themselves in this category and 68% influencing the strategic development of their company. Little wonder, therefore, that Upstream has received the acclaim it has. Today, Upstream is read by almost 40,000 influential industry executives in more than 100 countries every week.
