Advertising Opportunities @ www.oilpubs.com

Explosive growth in Corporate Internet usage has created an increasing demand for on-line information resources within the Oil, Gas and associated Marine industries.

Clarksons Research Services established a Web presence in 1996, to underpin our position as the World's leading publisher of data for offshore Operators and Contractors. The on-line publication of many of our databases has resulted in a significant number of key decision-makers becoming daily visitors to our web site www.oilpubs.com.

Since March 2000 we have also provided a FREE news resource for the offshore industry called Offshore Shipping Online. This publication is found on our home page and is up dated every two weeks.

Resources currently available via the web include:
