Energy Network Media group (EN Media Group) is a rebrand of Shale Magazine, one of the flagship publications in oil and gas for the last ten years. Over that time, we’ve covered the absolute top stories in oil and gas from most viewpoints imaginable. From brand new tech leaders like Teague Egan, who is revolutionizing lithium extraction, to the CEO of Pioneer Natural Resources, Scott Sheffield, our writers aim to dig deeper and have greater direct access to industry stakeholders. Through our subsidiary company, and nationally syndicated radio show In the Oil Patch, we are able to interview some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Texas Railroad Commissioners Christi Craddick, Wayne Christian and Jim Wright, to provide the most up-to-date information to our listeners who are on the go. Covering current events, policy, and the future of energy, our reason for existence is to help inform and educate the general public with relevant information they can use to be a powerful voice for change in the energy transition.
Presently, most of our readers are those with a background in the oil and gas industry. However, we are on the brink of the energy transition. . However, with the upcoming energy transition, we predict a dynamic shift within our demographics. Sustainability, and efficient and reliable energy sources, is a hot topic. As EN Media Group is expanding our coverage, we are beginning to see an introduction of the general public into our audience. With our audience being predominately in lucrative industries, our business model also appeals to advertisers. We have a massive reach, and the implementation of carefully placed ads on our various forms of media allows other companies to get a leg-up with our illustrious relationships, such as the Port of Corpus Christi.
A knowledgeable consumer is a powerful consumer, and presently, the oil and gas and newly developing energy industry is practically a mystery to the public.
Typically, the closest the general public gets to the industry is when they go to the pump or to charge their cars. Then, they go home and hear different opinions regarding the status of gas prices and electricity prices from large news corporations. There is a massive disconnect between the industry and the public. EN Media Group wants to bridge that divide. The energy transition revolution is taking place, it’s now more important than ever for the public to have an understanding of what’s happening behind these typically closed doors. While the mainstream media and politicians may try to paint oil and gas in a negative light, again and again, our fact-based reporting has shown just the opposite. As energy companies are fueling the research, development, and deployment of green energy on a global scale, EN Media’s mission is to be there to deliver the fresh insights our readers crave.
In order to provide the most up-to-date and authentic content, there are three areas within EN Media Group that we need to strengthen: our editorial team, our website, and our own paid advertising on major media platforms to expand our platform.
Prior to the energy transition, the areas of importance encompassed groundbreaking developments within corporations and the industry along with policies implemented within the oil and gas sector. Now, however, we have the implementation of hydrogen, carbon capture, and developments within the renewable sector, and this is just the beginning of the transition. As the industry grows, we need to grow with it in order to ensure that our coverage is truly authentic and all-encompassing. Similarly, the growth needs to be reflected on our website. Stagnancy is the antithesis of evolution, and we need to expand the capability of our website to reflect this growth.
Lastly, in order for us to see the growth we desire, within our following and our advertisers, we have to invest in advertisement for ourselves. With the planned assistance of paid advertisement on Google, along with placements within major media platforms such as The Washington Post, Forbes, and Bloomberg, we may be able to spread our content to various audience.

We already have a substantial following. Presently, we have:
- over 56 issues under our belt
- 15,000 visitors to our website monthly
- over 140 thousand subscribers on all of our social media, excluding the 11,700 thousand subscribers to our weekly newsletters
- between 10-30 thousand listens on our weekly online podcast
- potential to reach 1.6 million listeners on our radio show that airs 10 times a week on 5 separate radio stations across the nation
We have our audience, but we want it to grow. With a larger following, the capacity for versatile advertisement may substantially increase. The conversation on energy transition is sweeping the globe, and we believe we can be front and center to share reliable information with our audience.
As a media company, a primary source of revenue for us is our advertising and business-to-business model.
We presently have various forms of advertisements we offer within our publication and our radio show. Our team at In the Oil Patch radio show has perfected the creation of short commercials and capitalized on the opportunity for paid interviews.
In print, we offer several packages for banner placements within our website, advertising within our publication along with our e-blast. We have even produced several special editions for major corporations such as Port of Corpus Christi, STEER, and UTSA to tell the story of major milestones they have accomplished.
Lastly, we believe we have mastered the art of event planning. With the help of our abundance of sponsorships, we are able to frequently host mixers for our plethora of partnerships, our four annual State of Energy Luncheons, and lucrative membership drives.
Research conducted by the International Energy Authority (IEA) found that 2022 set a record for clean energy spending around the globe. With investment in 2022 set to reach $2.4 trillion, we believe the energy transition is no longer a moonshot, it's a blatant reality. Combine this ocean of opportunity with statistics from Deloitte’s Annual CMO survey, which pegs a 13.6% spend on marketing for most companies, and equates to a nearly 4% increase from the last two years. As more companies move digital, our platform finds itself at the perfect intersection of industry growth and online investment. This has been exemplified in Cox Enterprises’ recent acquisition of Axios for $525 million.
