Welcome to Telling Sense, the Jeremy Bowden Ltd website.

I’m a freelance journalist, researcher and analyst, serving a variety of clients across the world. My work ranges from editing and features, to in-depth reports and public relations material. I specialise in energy matters, but also cover other commodities, financial issues and geopolitics.me0315

My experience spans over twenty years in the energy, specialist energy media and utility sectors in a variety of positions in both Europe and Asia, including five years at IHS in Singapore as Midstream Manager for the Asian region, followed by a short spell as IHS-CERA Associate Director, Emerging Markets.

Before IHS, I was employed as Senior Asian Energy Correspondent for Dow Jones in Singapore, where work included contributions to the Asian Wall Street Journal. Prior to Dow Jones I worked at Energy Argus for five years in London and Singapore, where I edited the daily Asia-Pacific refined products news and price report. I also reported for Argus and PH Energy in the early days of the deregulated UK gas market, and before my master’s degree spent four years involved in cost forecasting at Thames Water.

Qualifications include an M.A. in International Business and Finance from Reading University in the UK, and a degree in Economics.

In 2015 I was editor of the newspaper, Offshore Aberdeen, although the timing of its launch coincided with the oil price slump and it is no longer published – see example OSA_Apr15_Final

Aside from energy and some financial journalism, I’ve looked after my son full time since his mum died a few years ago, and am keen to write on parenting issues.
