The following testimonials were received from SPE members who receive JPT during an ad study conducted by

SIGNET RESEARCH, INC, in March 2012.*

“JPT is a great source for building a

technical knowledge portfolio about the

various disciplines in our industry and

what is being done successfully in each.

The advertising is a useful metric for

what’s hot in the market.”

“Keeps me informed of what’s going

on in the petroleum industry without

relying on the news media.”

“When I see articles of interest,

I read them thoroughly and often

send a note regarding content

to others.”

“I appreciate being able to easily keep up

with current technology trends…

I also like reading the ads to help me

discern the world-wide application of

different companies.”
