Welcome to 2P News (2pnews.com), 2P News is a newspaper-themed blog that publishes original satirical articles focused on the oil and gas industry and working in downtown Calgary in general.

We also publish articles set in other major oil and gas hubs including Houston, Texas. But to be quite honest, our scope is not only international, but intergalactic.

This site was created by a number of downtown Calgary oil and gas professionals who like to share their observations on working in the patch. In Q3 2015 2P News opened a virtual office in Houston, Texas, because the low Canadian dollar enabled us to be funnier down there.

2P News will sometimes receive ideas from readers just like you (so feel free to submit your ideas by clicking on the “Contact Us” link in the site’s footer area).

The articles, the people and companies named within them, are all ficticious (except for some political figures, famous people, and large companies, where satirical license has been exercised). We do this for fun, and we hope that you enjoy reading, commenting, and sharing our content. Speaking of sharing, if you dig what’s on this site, please follow and like us on Twitter, Facebook, and join our Email Subscription service (look at the top of the side bar to the right).

If you subscribe, you will receive an email whenever we publish a new article (Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays – save for holidays). You can unsubscribe from the notifications at any time by simply clicking on a link at the bottom of the email. And we are excited to announce that effective immediately, 2P News is gluten-free!
