With so much information out there, it’s nice to know that there are sites like Oil & Gas IQ, which compile relevant industry-information into one place.  Thanks to @OilandGasIQ, you can stay up-to-date with the latest content without leaving Twitter.  I spoke with Sumit Dutta, of the London, Dubai and Singapore-based hub-of-information known as Oil & Gas IQ.  In Sumit’s own words:

OilandGasIQ.com is an online portal which connects the global oil and gas community and provides free articles, videos, podcasts, reports and webinars examining important issues and challenges in the industry. We also offer content from our network of oil and gas events such as speaker presentations.


Are you the only person that tweets?  How did you decide to start tweeting?

Yes — I run the twitter account. We introduced the twitter feed to support the OilandGasIQ.com site which was being launched at the time.

How long have you been tweeting?

Personally, I have been tweeting since 2009 at @SumitKD which focuses on marketing and media.  We started the OilandGasIQ.com twitter feed in 2010.

Why is it important to have a wealth of Oil & Gas information readily-available? 

As the industry is so fast moving it’s essential to keep up-to-date with the latest developments. Learning from others is a great way to find new solutions and ideas. The more informed an organization is, the better equipped it is to face challenges and identify opportunities.
