Overview:Based in Anchorage, Alaska, Petroleum News is a weekly oil and gas newspaper that covers all of Alaska and northern Canada. The publication is the only standalone oil and gas publication in Alaska.
In addition to Alaska and northern Canada, Petroleum News provides coverage of major oil and gas news from other parts of the Arctic, such as the Barents Sea. And, it also runs significant oil and gas news from elsewhere in North America - events that impact the industry in Alaska and northern Canada.
Petroleum News focuses on upstream news, but it also offers the most extensive coverage available of the proposed northern natural gas pipelines from the Mackenzie Delta and the North Slope.
Petroleum News' editorial objective is to provide readers with solid, trustworthy and timely information about the oil and gas industry. The news bulletin service and Petroleum News are frequently the first publications to break significant stories from Alaska and northern Canada.
Our news staff does not rely on press releases for information. Rather, we keep abreast of permit filings, lease reports and interactions with government agencies that often prove to be the forerunner of major happenings.
Our philosophy also serves the best interest of our advertisers: if people are reading the newspaper, they are seeing the ads. We offer contracted advertisers in Petroleum News a free listing in our biannual Arctic Oil & Gas Directory as well as many other benefits, but we have no editorial calendar because we believe news, not dated information, draws readers.
