Our Story

Petroleum Economist Cartographic published its first map outside of the magazine in 1990. The Middle East Oil & Gas Export Routes map was created to give PE subscribers a better picture of the energy scene prior to the outbreak of the first Gulf War. Shortly after came the first sponsored, large-format sheet maps in 1991, looking at the wider energy market, including the first edition of the very popular Energy Map of the World.

  • In 1999, we published our first global compilation of maps: the Millennium Energy Atlas and over the next 14 years, we produced six further editions
  • In 2002, we introduced five of our new maps to the delegates of WPC in Rio de Janeiro, including the World Oil Map, and have subsequently distributed a range of map titles at Adipec, Gastech, LNG and WGC, at venues across the world
  • In 2019, we launched the digital version of the World LNG Map on the ExxonMobil stand at Gastech in Houston

Since our launch in 1990 these maps have increased in detail, increased in quality and style, incorporating satellite imagery in 2005 and live data in 2019. We currently have a portfolio of approximately 50 energy map titles, covering all continents of the world, at country, regional and global scales, each of which took on average three months to create, design and produce. These maps are adorned with the brands and logos of many of the industry's leading stakeholders.
