expronews.com is the only online news provider for the oil and gas industry with a strong focus on the subsurface. Our main focus is Northwest Europe, although we do mean to keep an eye of what is happening in the rest of the world.

Our ambition is to give our readers up to date information of what is happening in exploration and production, including updates of well results, transactions and company news. We will also closely follow developments in technology and give our readers a good understanding of the oil and gas resource base.

expronews.com is published by Norway-based GeoPublishing AS.

GeoPublishing also publishes the popular geoscience magazine GEO and the online news site geo365.no, which delivers daily news to the mining and engineering geology communities.
