HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 22, 2011) - OilOnline, the original online information source for the oil and gas industry since 1995, announced today that it has launched a dramatically revamped website at www.oilonline.com. The new site will cover all aspects of the energy industry, from upstream through midstream to downstream as well as alternative energy and renewables.

The new site features a clean, modern design, creating an intuitive experience for the user and eliminating unnecessary links and clicks. Real time global news coverage in the world of energy will be available 24/7/365. Site visitors will have free and complete access to articles featuring editor insight into the implications of breaking news in the industry. The latest in technology will be keenly reviewed -- whether it's the hottest new product or a field-tested stand-by.

Long-term members of the former oilonline.com will be happy to see one point of entry now simplifies the registration process, with one account and password allowing members to manage magazine subscriptions, see directory listings, view digital editions of Offshore Engineer and Asian Oil & Gas and register for events such as Deepwater Intervention Forum, Emerging FPSO Forum, Drilling and Completing Trouble Zones and Petroleum Exhibition and Conference of Mexico. OilOnline is also going social, connected via Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube. A mobile edition with a simplified format and experience rolls out with the website launch, for smart phone browsers.

"This website makes OilOnline the definitive source for professionals in the energy industry," said Rob Garza, Publisher and Director, Atlantic Communications (ATCOM). "We feel like the investment we've made makes it more than just a place to house information, it truly is a valuable tool for media, industry and anyone interested in the field of energy."

In March, users can look forward to the addition of the OilOnline Energy Career Center, which will emphasize the global energy market. The OilOnline Energy Career Center will be free for qualified candidates and available to companies and recruiters at a reasonable rate. The official launch party open to human resource professionals will be on May 3, 2011 at 88 Keys, in Houston.
