From all of us at PennWell’s Houston-based Petroleum Group, we want you to know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families during this challenging time. Throughout the Gulf Coast region, we will continue to wrestle with the impact caused by Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath, which has brought historic damage to our communities along with stark images of the extent of the devastation. We want you to know that those of us at PennWell are temporarily out of our offices but are already working to provide frequent news updates on Harvey’s impact on oil industry operations. We also stand ready to help you communicate with your customers as the impact on your own business activities becomes more clear.
PennWell has a long history as an important voice for the oil and gas community but we also have publications and trade shows devoted to training firefighters, EMS professionals and other first responders. During an epic crisis, like the one we are facing now, we want to express our deep gratitude for the tireless and courageous service provided by first responders to our Gulf Coast communities. We are all in this together. Please let us know if we can assist you in any manner.
