Peter Nicholson Named Publisher Of Oildom Publishing Co.

Peter Nicholson, a well-known veteran of the oil and gas pipeline industry, is the new publisher of Oildom Publishing Co.

Oliver C. Klinger III, whose family has owned Oildom Publishing since the company was founded in New Jersey in 1908 by his grandfather, will remain as president. He succeeded his father as publisher in 1981.

Oildom publishes Underground Construction, Pipeline & Gas Journal and Pipeline News. The company also holds the Underground Construction Technology International Conference & Exhibition (UCT), a three-day trade show, every January, and the Pipeline Opportunities Conference in March.

Klinger said Nicholson brings considerable management skills to all avenues of Oildom’s operations, particularly in sales, marketing and business development. Those abilities, he added, are necessary for trade publications to continue to grow in today’s challenging global marketplace.

“Peter has tremendous technical knowledge across every business segment we deal with on a daily basis, including pipeline construction. He knows almost everyone and is very well-liked and respected,” Klinger said. “He will be an essential part of our business plan as we transition to the future.”

Nicholson most recently worked for Foster Wheeler as vice president of business development. His recent past experience includes vice president of international business development at Michels Corporation, supporting several domestic and international divisions working across the pipeline and utility spectrum. Prior to that he worked as business development manager for Serimax NA, and previous to that he was with Lincoln Electric as global business director of pipelines and business development manager.

A native of England, Nicholson is a graduate of Huddersfield Technical College in Manchester, now known as Kirklees College, and he has an executive MBA degree from Penn State University. He has also had three patents issued to him for welding technologies.
