  • Technology and innovation in fossil fuel production and implications for the cost of production and supply; upstream project economics.

We accept various types of submissions:

ANALYSIS (2500 – 4000 words) 

All analysis articles are subject to a double-blind peer review process (for more information, please see the page on our peer review policy).
