Welcome to the 21st edition of the OilVoice Magazine.
This month we have great articles from Angus Warren, Ola Nisja, Andrew McKillop, Gail Tverberg, Kurt Cobb, Keith Schaefer, Euan Mearns and Graham Shorr.
This is the last edition of 2013 and it has been a year of change for OilVoice. We've tried to focus on two main areas. Firstly the quality of our content. There are plenty of sites out there that contain only press releases, but we wanted to differentiate ourselves with opinion and commentary from the best authors in the business. New writers join our line up all the time, and we expect 2014 to be even better. If you have something to say, then please get in touch.
The second area we focussed on was recruitment. It's been hard work but we now have over 2000 active oil and gas jobs on the site, and new candidate growth is running at 20% month on month. A jobs board takes a while to 'bed in' an attract quality candidates, and we are well on the way.
Hope you enjoy this edition, and have a great Christmas and New Year.
