PennWell Corporation, a diversified global media and information company, has announced that it will publish Oil, Gas & Petrochem Equipment (OG&PE) as part of its Oil & Gas Journal beginning in May to serve a consolidated audience of 137,000 oil and gas professionals worldwide.
OG&PE grew out of Oil & Gas Journal in 1954 and has since been published monthly to cover industry equipment. Oil & Gas Journal, known as the industry's leading weekly international news and technology magazine, began life in 1902 to focus on upstream, midstream, and downstream operations. While leaving both brands intact, the reunion combines Oil & Gas Journal's news, technology, and statistics with OG&PE's coverage of equipment and services.
The product-rich OGPE.com website and weekly Equip-Alert e-Newsletter will continue in their present formats, with daily postings and social media. Oil & Gas Journal retains its weekly frequency, with OG&PE to be included in its printed issue the first week of each month. Oil & Gas Journal also publishes weekly in a digital magazine format, along with its full suite of digital services, including OGJ.com, multiple newsletters, and social media.
Based in Tulsa, veteran editor J.B. Avants will continue to lead OG&PE in collaboration with Oil & Gas Journal editor Bob Tippee.
