O & G

Your company’s engineers and SMEs are a wealth of highly specialized, highly technical industry-specific information. But when you need to package their technical knowledge and expertise into client-facing, benefits-oriented marketing materials, a lot can get lost in translation.

The Writers For Hire will work directly with you and your SMEs to create clear, engaging copy that showcases your company’s expertise.

  • Your new writing team includes a project manager, writer, and editor who work collaboratively, becoming a seamless extension of your in-house teams.
  • Award-winning project management software means we can organize massive amounts of content efficiently.
  • Comfortable with quick turnaround times.
  • Adept at coming up to speed fast to take on complex long-term and last-minute projects.

Industry Experience

As a Houston-based copywriting firm, we work at the heart of the oil and gas industry. Our writing team has decades of experience in the oil and gas industry, including upstream, downstream and midstream markets.

Some of our writers have joined our team after careers as freelance oil and gas reporters and marketing professionals. Others have come to us from in-house technical writing or communications positions with companies such as Weatherford. Many of our writers have degrees in relevant fields, including geology and civil/environmental engineering.

Past Projects

What type of work have you done in O&G?

Web Copy

We drafted 700+ pages of original web copy for a major pipeline service company’s new site. The project required more than 200 hours of in-depth interviews with SMEs, engineers, and technicians – and it required us to create and maintain a consistent voice that reflected the company brand and identity.

Nonfiction Books

We collaborated with one of our long-term oil and gas clients to research and ghostwrite a 250-page book about the future of the energy industry. Our accompanying marketing campaign, designed to promote interest in the book won the AMA Award for Social Responsibility.

Investor Communications

Several of our financial clients rely on us for sensitive communications involving company performance, changes to the corporate structure, and the economy.

Magazines and Trade Editorial

Our team of journalists has researched, conducted interviews, and written hundreds of articles for trade magazines in midstream, upstream and downstream topics.

Our O&G editorials have been published in:

Bakken Oil Business Journal

The Denver Post

Word Pipelines

Energy Tech

HART Energy Publications

The Hill

The Philadelphia Inquirer

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

An Award-Winning Example

A longstanding client in the energy industry asked our team to create an awareness campaign focused on American energy. The campaign, which was titled “Talk Crude,” included speeches and presentations; ghostwritten blogs; a full-length, thoroughly researched book about energy policy; a website; and social media. The campaign won AMA Houston’s 2016 award for the “Social Responsibility” category. Articles and promotional materials created for the campaign were placed in 41 print and online publications, generated 189 blog hits, and made 48,342 impressions across three leading social sites: Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

Put your trust in The Writers For Hire. We help you define what you need to produce the most exceptional copy possible, and we consistently deliver what we promise. When it comes down to it, you won’t find another professional writing team that can provide the same level of commitment:







We have the experience you need.

Other writing firms have good teams – but we have a great team. Our highly credentialed and experienced writers are degreed, full-time professionals, several of whom hold Ph.D.’s and master’s degrees in their fields. They bring a variety of backgrounds and, perhaps more importantly, understand how the business world works.

We get to know you

Developing and maintaining long-term client relationships is important to us. We take the time to get to know your company so we can develop messaging that both fits your company personality and presents real value to your end customer.

We are part of your team.

We believe in treating your project as our own. We’re not just writing your copy; we’re helping you deliver on your promise – to your boss, to yourself, to your stakeholders. That means we become proactive members of your company and seamless extensions of your internal team. Sure, we’ll take directions when you know exactly what you want. But we’ll also make suggestions when you need guidance to make every project a success.

We are efficient.

Time is valuable. The Writers For Hire won’t waste yours. We recognize that you don’t have enough hours in the day to train writers and editorial project managers – on the other hand, you can’t afford to make mistakes on such an important element of your business operations. We use a proprietary process to quickly synch with your team, and award-winning software to efficiently manage campaigns with hundreds of deliverables.

We’ve got your back.

Say your lead writer is out of the office, and you need a quick turnaround on a new deliverable. You have back-up who knows the particulars of your account and can move your projects ahead seamlessly. So go ahead and call us at any given time – we’ll make it happen for you.

We are exceptionally customer-focused.

Our dedication to customer service is obvious: You’ll never worry about being able to reach us. You’ll have a dedicated team assigned to you, and you can rest assured that your team will be highly responsive.

But don’t just take our word for it. Our client list speaks for itself.

We assist Fortune 100s, government entities, and large corporations – including Hilton, Forbes, Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center, Sara Lee, Rig-Zone, St. Arnold Brewing Company, Caterpillar, and Mitsubishi Forklift Truck, to mention just a few.

Ladies, I am pleased to let you know that 5 of our applications were selected as finalists and will be going to Melbourne for the HSEC Awards on August 15-16! I am meeting with the team early next week, and I will learn more at that time regarding any additional needs for presentations or other materials to be used in showcasing their project at the big show!
