The Journal of Petroleum Exploration and Production Technology is an international open access journal that publishes leading edge studies in the field of petroleum engineering, petroleum geology and exploration geophysics and the implementation of related technologies to the development and management of oil and gas reservoirs from their discovery through their entire production cycle.

Focusing on:

  • Reservoir characterization and modeling
  • Unconventional oil and gas reservoirs
  • Geophysics: Acquisition and near surface
  • Geophysics Modeling and Imaging
  • Geophysics: Interpretation
  • Geophysics: Processing
  • Production Engineering
  • Formation Evaluation
  • Reservoir Management
  • Petroleum Geology
  • Enhanced Recovery
  • Geomechanics
  • Drilling
  • Completions

The Journal of Petroleum Exploration and Production Technology is supported by King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST), which means there are no publication fees for authors. It accepts original and review articles as well as book reviews for publication. All the manuscripts are single-blind peer-reviewed for scientific quality and acceptance.

The Journal of Petroleum Exploration and Production Technology is committed to upholding the integrity of the scientific record. As a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) the journal will follow the COPE guidelines on how to deal with potential acts of misconduct. Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which could damage the trust in the journal and ultimately the entire scientific endeavor. Maintaining integrity of the research and its presentation can be achieved by following the rules of good scientific practice as detailed here: https://www.springer.com/us/editorial-policies
