Petroleumworld launched a new
digital website

On its 22nd anniversary, Petroleumworld launches a new digital website.

- Will cover news and information from all energy, environmental, renewables
and engineering sectors in addition to its regular oil & gas

By EnergiesNet/Petroleumworld

CARACAS 12 23 2021, a web portal serving the oil, gas and energy industry since 1999, expands to all energy sectors in its new website. The new digital website is fully automated and will go in depth on all energy sectors in Latin America through its daily news, periodical information and opinion articles on the happenings in the energy sectors with special emphasis on clean energy, wind, solar, hydro, biomass, biogas in addition to the traditional fossil energy sectors such as coal, oil, and gas. will extensively cover clean or green energy and everything related to renewable energy and its impact on climate change. As well as technological issues that bring us closer to a true engineering revolution to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement signed at the World Climate Summit held in December 2015 in the French capital, and renewed at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in 2021 or COP 21 and the recently held COP 26, held in Glasgow in November this year.

Will continue to follow the decisions of OPEC, now OPEC+, and those of the IEA and the Atomic Energy Agency OIEA. As well as the energy generating companies, the upstream and downstreams sector of the oil & gas companies or energy companies as they are beginning to be called.

We seek to achieve new goals in terms of monitoring political and social developments in Latin American countries and the world that directly and indirectly influence decisions on energy and sustainability of the peoples of America.

All of this is carried out by our sources from the main news agencies, media and our collaborators in various cities of the Americas.

We look forward to the support of our readers and of companies and institutions to bring you a quality Latin American energy website.
