Globalshift Limited - firstname.lastname@example.org Globalshift.co.uk is as up-to-date as possible but some information may not be the most recent available
Globalshift was incorporated in 2009 after the owners sold Energyfiles. The company was at first an energy adviser but now provides oil and gas forecasts and information about the ‘Energy Shift’ to the oil and gas industry, and other energy suppliers and users.
Globalshift is a commercial enterprise but believes in a simple tenet - the world must adapt its use of fossil fuels to a changing world. As such this website hopes to help spread our views and knowledge about future supplies of oil and gas as well as giving details of exploration and development activity within the industry.
We wish to encourage independent and realistic analysis of the future of oil and gas, unfettered by wishful thinking or dogma. And, of course, we hope that companies and individuals will purchase of our low-cost forecasts.
In particular Globalshift tries to provide comprehensive global coverage. As such, the histories and forecasts are derived from a large range of trusted sources, as well as some of the less rigorous or reliable ones. They are then sense-checked and modified where deemed appropriate and may be estimated and interpolated where data are unavailable.
