OilVoice Magazine

Forty Forth Edition

November, 2016

oilvoice magazine Welcome to the Forty Fourth edition of the OilVoice Magazine. We're into November now, and the end of the year is in sight - and what a year it has been! Plenty of news filtering through of service companies struggling, and people losing jobs. Let's hope that 2016 is a fresh start for the industry, and we see a return to viable pricing.

We have another bumper edition of the OilVoice magazine for you this month. I'm always astounded at the quality of industry writing available, and how lucky we are to be able to share it with you. Remember, if you like a writer in our magazine, take a moment to visit their site and explore what else they have to offer.

We are pressing ahead with our training, and have added some exciting 'all new' courses to our line-up. Our next course 'Introduction to Oil and Gas Exploration and Production' only has a few places left, so be sure to take a closer look if you are interested.

Enjoy the magazine, and catch you next month!
