Oil & Gas Journal editors are happy to consider for
publication manuscripts about exploration and development, drilling, production, pipelines, LNG, and
processing (refining, gas processing, and basic petrochemicals). These papers may be highly technical in
nature and appeal or they may analyze oil and natural
gas supply, demand, and markets. OGJ accepts manuscripts submitted exclusively to it or those adapted
from oral and poster presentations. An Author Guide
is available at www.ogj.com; click “Home,” then “
