GSH Journal

 2020 March

GSH Editorial Committee is happy to present new Web Journal format!

A few hints on the functionality that we've put into our Web engine:

  • Get familiar with the function menu on the left and navigation pane on the bottom. Note that position of the menu can change depending on your browser/device. Be sure to check out auto-two-page view when rotating your device!
  • You can always zoom in/out of content by mouse click.
  • Use easy navigation by clicking on desired page from bottom panel, or viewing Journal contents from the function menu. You can also check Thumbnails from the same menu.
  • Settings option from the function menu will help you to adjust Zoom options. Another important feature here is Page transition. Choose Slide or Flip for 2-page view and Presentation for a single page.
  • Use Download button to get a PDF copy of the Journal on your device.
  • Clipping tool can help you to cut desired area of the Journal into a picture.

We hope that you are going to enjoy the new GSH Web Journal as much as we do. If you have any suggestions or recommendations, your feedback would be greatly appreciated at

Companies have embraced operating on lean budgets, while building capabilities and investing shrewdly. In addition, economic and political instability is ever present, and we’re all left with our heads spinning regarding industry outlook. Lay-offs continue. Energy employees no longer live with peace of mind about job security. I’ve seen many brilliant and capable colleagues let go. Anything can happen at any moment; you just never know. But that’s life I suppose. What can each of us do to manage this situation? The same as the oil and gas companies: operate on lean budgets, build capabilities, and invest in ourselves. ... click to read
