About Petroleum Economist

Petroleum Economist (PE) is a fast-growing monthly magazine and web service focused on the global energy industry and read by its senior leaders. It is based in London with a global network of editors and contributors. It is part of the Houston-headquartered Gulf Energy Information.

PE offers the opportunity to work in a collegiate, collaborative, hierarchically flat structure alongside some of the best energy journalists and analysts in the business. Its venerable history (since 1933) and well-respected and recognised brand open doors to even the most senior energy leaders, allowing any PE writer immediate access to join the industry conversation, not observe from the side-lines.
