IHRDC Launches New Petroleum Industry Blog
Weekly Publication Explores Current Oil and Gas Business Issues
The goal of the blog is to act as a trusted resource for information about important trends in the oil and gas industry, and to keep industry readers up-to-date on topics they care about. It will seek to encourage a dialog with its readers, offering timely posts on subjects of interest, and thus prompting both relevant comments and suggestions from industry stakeholders and IHRDC’s many alumni.
“We are very excited about our company’s new blog initiative,” said Dr. David A.T. Donohue, President of IHRDC. “We are eager to share IHRDC’s knowledge and expertise in a format that allows for easy feedback, comment and conversation on many of today’s “hot button” oil and gas industry topics.” According to Dr. Donohue, the firm has recruited more than 30 contributing writers to share their expertise on a regular basis, and to engage in this give and take that will benefit readers around the world.
Blog topics have thus far included “Oil, the Arab Spring and Some Unforeseen Consequences,” “Oil, Money, and Pemex,” and “The Shale Revolution: A Boon to Some Refiners.” Future posts will include topics such as “Unconventional Hydrocarbon Developments,” “The Three Essential Skills in Today’s Global Economy,” and “The Difference Between Petroleum Competency and Petroleum Compliance.”
