Rigs & Coffee Is In The Books. Thanks For Stopping By, We’ll Be Doing This Again Soon

On Tuesday morning, we extended an open invitation to all Infill Thinking readers: come by the Starbucks on Post Oak near the Galleria in Houston and have a coffee on Infill Thinking’s tab.

We were on location writing the next big Infill Thinking story and enjoyed meeting with a great group of our readers.

To those that came out – thank you. To those that couldn’t make it – stay tuned, we’ll do this again soon. Around the beginning of April, we plan to host a similar event in Houston’s energy corridor and later this year we will be in the Permian Basin and downtown Houston. To all our readers around the globe, it is an honor to write for you. Thank you for your readership, and we hope to meet each of you in time.

The conversations with our readers yesterday reminded us of why we started Infill Thinking in the first place. At one point during our meet-and-greet, we had folks from four completely different oilfield segments and four completely different career paths show up at the same time. The result was cross-discipline interaction, networking, and knowledge sharing.

This reminded us that in-depth reporting fuels the imagination, opens new opportunities, and unites us all in furthering this industry we serve. A little oilfield brain food can spark a great discussion, and that’s what we intend to continue to deliver here at Infill Thinking.

Thank you for your support as we attempt to put high-caliber market intelligence within everyone’s reach and budget. With no advertisements and a price point far below any comparable research product, we designed Infill thinking to put readers before revenue.

Several readers this week in Houston told us that our price was a fraction of what we could charge given the value they’ve received from the stories. In fact, one potential reader thought we were asking $195/month not $195/year! This is the point, and this is by design.

We believe oilfield thinkers from all walks of life and many different career paths deserve high quality business updates. We trust enough thinkers are willing to chip in to support this resource so that we can continue to write strictly for renewals not corporate sponsorships. This is the only way to truly align a publisher’s interest with readers and eliminate the noise, clutter and bias that has crept into the noisy world of digital content.

The focus of Thinking Ahead is the oilfield business outlook. Our data-driven analyses and trend discussions help you identify your next opportunity and optimize business outcomes. Our subject matter spans the global oilpatch.
In-depth research on hot oilfield topics. Written quarterly, the Out Think series includes segment primers, thematic explorations, and fundamental forecasts designed to help you “out think” the competition.

Coming soon: Think Sheets are regularly updated spreadsheets containing original data-sets, models and analysis on upstream fundamentals (requires Analyst Plan). In addition to proprietary analysis, we also aggregate and organize public oilfield data-sets. Analysts are able to download the files in our growing library any time.
Our Thinking Aloud discussion forum unites industry thought leaders in conversation about important business issues, moderated by Joseph Triepke. Some of the industry’s brightest minds are joining Infill Thinking, and this is the place where they are talking about the trends of the day.
In addition to real-time and archived access on the website, we also ship our research exclusively to subscribers in regular email newsletters. Twice weekly, quarterly and breaking alert emails will keep you thinking with us.
