Our Network

Over the last four years we have come across some organizations and individuals who, when it comes to oil & gas, are simply doing the right thing. That is, sharing good information routinely to those who want it. To expand our presence and to further our mission of continuing the conversation, we have teamed up with these organizations.

Our network operates these websites with a user base that spans the U.S.  Our sites began above the Marcellus Shale but we’ve recently broken into other shale plays across the U.S. with continued expansion planned.

By partnering with these other organizations we have been able to attract new members to our sites and increase the amount of people seeing important content. It’s been a win-win for both our partners and our advertisers.
