Recommended by professors:

„I recommend EEK to the students because it always publishes research results with local relevance in addition to internationally relevant topics from the industry. EEK is by far the most relevant monthly publication on upstream topics in the German-speaking world“


Prof. Dr. Leonhard Ganzer
Clausthal University of Technology

„EEK offers students the opportunity to publish their own scientific papers and to get to know new technologies of the operator and service companies that may one day be their employers. The fact that articles are also published in English should be an additional motivation for students to use this medium.“


Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr. mont. Herbert Hofstätter
Montanuniversität Leoben

EEK offers with its versatile articles an excellent overview of the state and activities of the German oil and gas industry - a must for all prospective and active engineers and scientists in this industry.
