TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I am a technical writer for Halliburton Energy
Services, one of the largest suppliers of oil field
services. I have ghost written journal articles
for trade journals (such as Oil & Gas Journal), and
have helped engineers write papers for meetings of
the Society of Petroleum Engineers. Currently, however,
I am busy on a manual about chemical products.
You will probably also hear from Ken d'Albenas who
has quite a history in the oil field.
So, yes, there are writers working in the oil & gas
