BLOG: Rigzone's Downstream Coverage Starts New Chapter

56,226. That was the final tally of articles in the content management system at the close of business on Friday, May 5 – the last full day of DownstreamToday's 10-plus year run as a freestanding branded website under the Rigzone umbrella.

Although is no longer active, Rigzone's coverage of the downstream oil and gas industry didn't end with that 56,226th article. We still strive to be your go-to resource for downstream oil and gas news, jobs and events, and we remain committed to covering the sector.

You may have already noticed that we've migrated our downstream content to a dedicated page on the Rigzone website. Moreover, thousands of you are already receiving our refreshed Downstream Daily and Downstream Weekly newsletters. If you're not receiving either or both of these free newsletters but would like to, simply visit Rigzone's Newsletter Management Center to quickly opt in. Also, we regularly update Rigzone's Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter pages with downstream content.

Making the transition from two websites to one is the culmination of a process that began last fall and involved Rigzone's content, marketing, product and software development teams. We hope that you're pleased with the results.

I'm also interested in learning what you think about the change. Please feel free to email me your feedback, along with any story ideas, at
