First Break

Quick Links

First Break publishes top-quality submitted and commissioned research articles, together with news, monthly topics, industry features and company profiles.

First Break is the leading publication in Europe serving the geoscience and engineering community. While the main emphasis is on the oil and gas E&P industry, reflecting the membership of the EAGE, the magazine increasingly includes coverage of important related areas, such as environmental geoscience and mining. As a result First Break has a circulation that extends well beyond the membership of the EAGE and is read worldwide as an authoritative source of relevant news, features, analysis and accessible technical information. Since 1983, First Break has been the publication of choice for many decision-makers and specifiers in geoscience-related organizations, and is considered an ideal advertising medium to reach a focused audience in Europe and further afield.

First Break is published monthly.
