Eurasia Press launched its flagship publication, Oil&Gas Eurasia, in late 1999 as Russia’s first bilingual (Russian and English language parallel text), technology-oriented publication for the oil and gas industry operating in Russia and states of the former Soviet Union, including Central Asia and the Caspian region.
For nearly two decades, OGE – published in Moscow by an international staff with a satellite office in Houston – was Russia’s leading B2B energy publication connecting the international upstream service and supply sector with internationally minded, emerging Russian majors.
- OGE was the only Russian-registered business media to ever complete an international standard BPA circulation audit, certifying print publication distribution figures not only in Moscow but also in remote oil towns in Western Siberia and as far east as Sakhalin Island.
- London-based Reed Exhibitions selected OGE as its official publication, show daily newspaper and catalogue publisher when it launched its annual SPE Russian Petroleum Technology Conference in 2008, partnering with the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
- In 2015 Eurasia Press expanded into live events, organizing international technology study tours to the U.S. for mid-level Russian field engineers, visiting oil and gas fields and major companies in Texas, Oklahoma and California, and major events such as the OTC in Houston; often in collaboration with the U.S. Foreign Commercial Service to promote U.S. exports.
With changing geopolitical realities OGE – now as an Internet based media source – has refocused its coverage to the wider Eurasia and frontier markets currently emerging in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East, Africa and Asia as energy flows undergo a dramatic shift driven by the energy transition and reorientation of oil and gas supply and demand scenarios now being played out globally.
