More on this journal...

Oil, natural gas and coal are the main forms of fossil hydrocarbon type fuels that contribute to more than 80% of world energy consumption and it seems that at least throughout the most of this century they will remain as the main sources of energy. With increase in demand of energy, economical production of clean and high quality fuels from available resources is desirable more than ever before. In addition, biofuels are a promising future fuel and will play an important role in providing energy when fossil fuel production cannot match the world demand. The objective of IJOGCT is to provide a single reference that addresses all issues related to fossil type fuels and their derived products especially with regard to environmental and economical constraints as well as biofuels.


IJOGCT provides a unique resource to professionals, academics, researchers, and managers working in the fields of petroleum oil, natural gas and coal and biofuel industries, businesses and management from all over the world.


IJOGCT publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, industrial reports, management reports, book reviews, research notes, and news. Special issues to important topics related to oil, gas and coal technology and related industries, biofuels, businesses and policies will be published.
