This week, Infill Thinking celebrates the three-year anniversary of our very first oilfield research newsletter.
So much has transpired in the oilfield marketplace since we shipped Issue Number 1.
Back then, the Lower 48 oilfield market was just emerging from the brutal 2014 downturn and at the cusp of a nice cyclical upturn. Who knew it would come with so much structural change?
290 Infill Thinking newsletters later, the cycle has rolled over into contraction territory again. Along the way, Infill Thinking has provided members with a front row seat to big shifts and market disruption. Some of these big multi-year themes we’ve followed since their beginnings include the advent of local sand, the last mile Renaissance, the E&P focus on capital discipline, and the emergence of a robust water midstream industry.
Through these ups and downs in the oilfield, Infill Thinking newsletters have been a constant – arriving twice a week in member inboxes, come rain or shine, delivering insight and analysis that can often only be found here.
It continues to be our great honor to write for you, our valued members, and cover an oilfield industry we truly love. Infill Thinking would simply not exist without the support, input, and feedback of our valued membership, which has grown consistently in each of our three years. So on our birthday, we just want to say Thank You!
Your membership allows us to stay completely independent and free of any corporate advertising/influence on the paid website. This means we are in a rather unique position in our peer group of always putting readers before revenue and delivering truly unbiased perspective on the issues that matter most in the oilfield competitive landscape.
To the many of you that have contributed to our research (either directly with guest posts or offline with us): Thank You!
To everyone that has supported this platform over the past 3 years by reading one of our 290 newsletters or the 1,100 written updates we’ve published, we extend to you our warmest and sincerest thanks.
So cheers from the Infill Thinking team – Joseph Triepke, Mason De Lapp, and Rossi Manchev – celebrating 3 great years and looking forward to many more alongside you as the oilfield cycles ebb and flow…
