Petroleum Review December 2016 / January 2017

As noted in our opening perspective piece on p2 of this month’s issue, ‘change’ has been the only constant for the international oil and gas industry this past year – a trend that looks set to continue in 2017. Indeed, the challenges the sector has faced over the past 12 months is a theme picked up throughout the magazine, beginning with a look at how Australia’s LNG and E&P sectors have tackled such issues head on.

Market trends and their impact on the shipping sector are also assessed, as are some of the latest technological innovations driving drilling sector developments and remote operations both on- and offshore. We also embark on a journey into space, assessing the role E&P of resources will play in the future if international space law and gravity allow.

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed a new online feature addition to our contents line-up. These will be flagged up over the course of 2017, as extra digital content for our readers to enjoy. So, as another year draws to a close, it only remains for me to take this opportunity to thank our contributors and readers for their continued support of Petroleum Review and our sister magazine Energy World. Wishing you all New Season’s Greetings and a Happy New Year.
