Editorial calendar 2017

Petroleum Economist writes features each month based on news from the ground. However, we also plan in depth features and reports each year to give you a picture of the energy industry beyond the headlines. Take a look at our editorial calendar to see what's coming up.

We ask the question: will these - and other factors - lead to more harmonious relations between the IOCs and government?
