History

The SEAPEX Press is a news and views magazine produced by SEAPEX to stay in touch with its members. It had its beginnings in a photocopied four-page newsletter in 1998 produced by then President Ian Collins and his staff at Unocal. When George Croy joined SEAPEX, he was asked by Ian if he could improve on the Newsletter. Being Editor of PetroMin meant this was not much of a problem and he produced a 16-page A5 Newsletter in full colour. The name, SEAPEX Press, was provided by Bob Pile who won a competition to name the magazine. Since the prize was a six-pack of beer, Bob’s brain cells must have been working overtime to ensure he won…

The response from members to this little 16-page booklet was immediate and finding sponsors to pay for the production was no real problem. As things progressed, the SEAPEX Press went from 16 pages to 32 pages, requiring additional assistance and Mark Harris came on board to help collect and collate the materials as well as liaise with the sponsors.

And like Jack’s Beanstalk, it just kept on growing! Currently, each quarterly issue sees the production of over 80 pages of news and views from the industry. A far cry from its 16-page beginning! The SEAPEX Press now circulates throughout the world, with more than 1,000 copied mailed out every quarter. The SEAPEX Press is seen as one of the best magazines in the front end oil industry with a mix of news, comments, meeting reports, technical papers, scout check reports and of course lots of photos.

As can be imagined, as pages increased, so did the problems with production. What took three or four evenings to produce now takes three or four weeks. It is because the SEAPEX Press is produced by Mark on a retainer basis, and is not farmed out to a commercial outfit that the rates have stayed low. Where else can you get a full page (albeit A5) advert for that price?

Publication of the SEAPEX Press is now every three months.
