Members receive premium research newsletters and full access to a market intelligence platform designed for today’s oilfield decision makers.
No Ads. No Noise. No Clutter.

More than just the same old news, these frequent updates provide context and analysis on the most important oilfield issues of the day. Relevant with a long-shelf life, these updates offer new angles that can’t be found anywhere else. Infill Thoughts are emailed to members each Tuesday and Friday and archived at

The focus of Thinking Ahead is the oilfield business outlook or themes that will impact the oilfield in the future. These trend analyses help executives, sales people, and decision makers stay ahead in their markets. Our subject matter spans the global oilpatch, and Thinking Ahead installments are sprinkled into our e-newsletters as we complete them.

Quick Thoughts email alerts provide unique perspective on the biggest breaking news, identifying implications and reading between the lines. Our focused commentary empowers you to react fast to big developments with reliable context.

Occasionally, we write in-depth reports on the hottest oilfield topics. These high-value reports are sent to members by email, and members have access to the archive. These may include segment primers, thematic explorations, or fundamental forecasts. Here is an example: A Massive Paradigm Shift In Frac Sand’s Last Mile Is Happening Now

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. Any subscriber can post here, and Infill Thinking staff will facilitate responses.

Subscribers can access what we write on the web all the time but also receive our content in regular email newsletters. Infill Thoughts are emailed each Tuesday and Friday. Here is a link to recent example.

Think Sheets are regularly updated spreadsheets containing original data-sets, models and analysis on upstream fundamentals. Qualified analysts are able to download the files in our growing library any time.

We offer discounts for team signups. Learn about our enterprise rates here.

Infill Thinking is an independent research firm. We do not serve sponsors directly competing in the markets we cover. We serve readers with honest, unbiased industry coverage.

Members Enjoy:

  • Focused and thoughtful coverage of the oil service, drilling, and E&P business.
  • A competitive edge from original oilfield market analysis you won’t find elsewhere.
  • Conversation with other bonafide industry elites and valuable data downloads.
  • High value research reports on specific oilfield niches that illuminate trends and business opportunities.
  • Unique analysis and perspective from an experienced, trusted voice on the markets, companies, and technologies that exist to extract hydrocarbon from the earth. 

Members Don’t Worry About:

  • Oil price speculation. We are not oil price blowhards. There are more than enough folks out there guessing the price of oil and writing about OPEC, so we only cover the biggest developments on the commodity price front.
  • A barrage of news. We’d be happy to recommend some good sources if you want to keep up with syndicated news and press releases. Here you’ll only see unique angles on the most important stories – the stories you really want (and need) to read.
  • Ads. We are a freemium model, so paying members don’t see any annoying ads or corporate influence. We offer a free service to non-paying members sponsored by carefully selected advertising partners that do not seek to influence our work in any way.
  • Clutter. Call us old school, but we rely on article quality and word of mouth to grow, not a million share buttons and other online tricks.
  • Trolls. Because a subscription is required, you are guaranteed next level conversation in our discussion forums.


*Occasional special analysis reports are only available to Analyst Plan members. Please note that the prices and plans listed above are for single individual readers with an interest in the industry, not individuals who have broadcasting platforms such as sell side analysts or the press. Terms for clients engaged in the business of information dissemination are negotiated on a case-by-case basis. If your business is information distribution, please sign up for the free trial to check out our work and an Infill Thinking staff member will contact you to discuss a plan for your team.

Offline check out is available (invoicing by our team with check or ACH payment options) for individual subscription for $345/year.

Reprints Available To Share One-Off Articles

Do you want to share just one specific Infill Thinking update with your employees, customers or investors? Like many other other trade journals, we offer reprints of our past articles for purchase in digital or print format.

Our updates offer unique perspective and provide deep, timeless insights that can’t be found anywhere else. We understand that buying annual subscriptions for a large group just so they can read one single update may not make sense. Email [email protected] for reprint pricing and availability.

We will only discuss articles that have already been written and published – our future research updates, conclusions, and the topics we chose to cover are not for sale and will not be influenced by any outside interests.
