January 16, 2013

AMSTERDAM, January 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

Elsevier [http://www.elsevier.com ], a world-leading provider of scientific, technical
and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new
journal, Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources
[http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-unconventional-oil-and-gas-resources ](JUOGR).

JUOGR is to publish world-class science focusing on recent advances in knowledge and
practices in the area of evaluation, development and management of unconventional
resources for researchers and practicing engineers. The journal aims to bridge the gap
between theoretical knowledge and field development of unconventional resources, such as
tight gas, shale gas, liquid rich shales, tight oil, coalbed methane, gas hydrate, etc.

Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources will be edited by Dr. John Yilin Wang
from Pennsylvania State University, supported by a distinguished board of subject editors
including leading experts in the field of petroleum geology, geophysics, and engineering.

“One of the global challenges is to meet the increased energy demands for our growing
population and our high standards of living. Exploration and development of unconventional
resources is a key to solution,” said Dr. Wang.

“The impact and need for unconventional resources is only predicted to grow in the
future,” added Bethan Keall, Publishing Director Earth and Planetary Sciences at Elsevier.
“With the launch of the Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources, Elsevier aims to
stimulate and support research in this exciting and important new field of science by
providing a unique and specialized outlet.”

Journal of Unconventional Oil and Gas Resources will publish four volumes in 2013. For
