    Tina Olivero: Celebrating a 25-year legacy with the energy industry.

    In June of 2016, hundreds of clients, colleagues, contractors and friends of The OGM gathered to celebrate a 25-year legacy.  Founder Tina Olivero says, “Building and industry from nothing to something great, has not always been easy but vision and perseverance of our energy community has prevailed”.

    The OGM magazine started six years before oil was ever produced in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Today 25-years later, the publication remains an icon of support for the energy industry not just locally but around the globe, garnishing readers from energy centres around such as Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi, and other middle eastern countries as well as Norway, Scotland, the UK, the USA and more.

    Tina Olivero says, ” We are very proud of what we have architected and executed to date. The company has grown and changed with the times.  We live in a new digital era which makes things boundless and exciting.  We remain steadfast to the vision of our energy security and a new energy world emerging.  In essence, after 25 years, I can say, we’ve only just begun.”

    While the industry is in a short term low and the price of oil has essentially cut revenues in half, this time of dramatic adjustment will prepare companies for the future.  Leaner, more efficient and streamline systems will take the lead.  Companies will be built on the essentials and on what we “need” rather than what we “want”.  Technology and innovation will save the day.

    Tina says, “This is a time of simplification, standardization, and collaboration.  It’s difficult to re-engineer a company that was doing really well and overhaul it to an entirely new way of operating but it’s essential.  25-years in the industry has taught me that change is inevitable. You can’t sit on your laurels and think work will come to you. You have to assertively go after it and the value that you offer has to be unprecedented and sustainable for clients. Much of the time, that means going out into the future and architecting products and services that will be needed tomorrow and work back from there.”

    Tina Olivero

    30 years ago, Tina Olivero looked into the future and saw an opportunity to make a difference for her province and people. That difference came in the form of the oil and gas sector. Six years before there was even a drop of oil brought to the shores of Newfoundland, she founded The Oil and Gas Magazine (THE OGM) from a back room in her home on Signal Hill Road, in St. John’s, Newfoundland. A single mother, no financing, no previous journalism or oil and gas experience, she forged ahead, with a creative vision and one heck of a heaping dose of sheer determination. With her pioneering spirit, Ms. Olivero developed a magazine that would educate, inspire, motivate and entertain oil and gas readers around the world — She prides herself in marketing and promoting our province and resources in unprecedented ways. The OGM is a magazine that focuses on our projects, our people, our opportunities and ultimately becomes the bridge to new energy outcomes and a sustainable new energy world. Now diversifying into the communications realms, a natural progression from the Magazine, The OGM now offers an entirely new division - Oil & Gas Media. Today, The Oil and Gas Magazine is a global phenomenon that operates not only in Newfoundland, but also in Calgary and is read by oil and gas enthusiasts in Norway, Aberdeen, across the US and as far reaching as Abu Dhabi, in the Middle East. Believing that Energy is everyone’s business, Ms. Olivero has combined energy + culture to embrace the worlds commitment to a balance of work and home life as well as fostering a foundation for health and well being. In this era of growth and development business and lifestyle are an eloquent mix, there is no beginning or end. Partnering with over 90 oil and gas exhibitions and conferences around the world, Ms. Olivero's role as a Global Visionary is to embrace communication in a way that fosters oil and gas business and industry growth in new and creative ways.
