Season’s Greetings from Digital Oil and Gas

Thank you for subscribing to Digital Oil and Gas this year, and what a year it’s been!


It takes a few creative talents to publish something like this every week.


  • The artwork is mostly mine, although occasionally another hand will appear – usually Dominika Warchol Hann.
  • The photos are from my collection of oil and gas infrastructure. Yes, that’s how I spend some of my vacation time.
  • The logo is also courtesy of the creative talents of Dominika Warchol Hann.
  • The reader on the podcast (so far) is me, and the fine BBC radio tones at the sign off are from Charles Aram.
  • Matt Smith provided the jingle for which I am most grateful as I have no musical talent whatsoever.
  • The contributors are specialists in their fields, and take great pride in researching, writing and editing the stories.


The blog is a growing voice in the conversation about the role of digital in oil and gas.

  • It routinely tops all search engines when searching for digital oil and gas.
  • The blogsite has been visited 12,700 times this year, about 250 per week or so, from 114 different countries.
  • Page views will top 26,000 this year.
  • The mailing list has 440 subscribers (and thank you for your interest).
  • I can tell from the subscriber email addresses that the content appeals to think tanks, research houses, CIOs, CFOs, investment banks, founders, consultants, media, technology start ups, and industry professionals.
  • The most popular article this year has been “what could digital blockchain do to oil and gas”, followed by “ERP’s future in a digital oil and gas world”.
  • The most popular distribution channel by far is LinkedIn, where each post generally receives several hundred views, and 20+ likes and shares (thank you all for pressing the thumbs up button). Next is organic search, and finally, Twitter.
  • The podcast kicked off in February and is available on iTunes – look for Digital Oil and Gas. The podcasts have been downloaded about 7000 times.
  • The Twitter account is also pretty active, with 300+ followers – look for @DigitalOilGas


Finally, Merry Christmas and Season’s Greetings to all, and I wish you all possible success for 2018!
