Editorial calendar 2018

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.

With the second-largest proven oil reserves in the Middle East and the fastest growing production, post-Isis Iraq's upstream looks an oil prize on paper.

Global LNG

Liquified natural gas (LNG) is back. The glut of supply has not transpired—nor has the brutal price depression many analysts expected. New pockets of demand are soaking up excess exports, new contract flexibility is redrawing the commercial environment, new trading hubs are emerging, and floating technology is bringing new buyers and new suppliers to the market. This extended survey of the global LNG business will pick out the trends that matter, the countries making waves and the firms breaking the mould. Written by our correspondents from the US to Australia, Moscow to Maputo, this will be 2018's definitive analytical survey for LNG for investors and decision-makers.
