My name is Nicholas Newman and I am a freelance writer who provides content for mostly b2b, b2c and corporate clients in various formats including:

So keep me in mind when you or your organization needs expert industrial journalists such as myself to provide content to meet your publishing, marketing and public relations needs.
I specialize in providing content dealing with global energy industries and cover everything to do with oil and gas, including exploration, production, processing, distribution, storage and marketing.
Furthermore, I also deal regularly with power generation from coal, renewables and nuclear. In addition, I cover the ancillary issues involved, such as investment, trading and the technologies that make the energy business possible.
More recently, I have dealt with the global logistics of energy, including issues concerned with transportation by air, land or sea and – above all – by pipelines.
