RBN Backstage Pass™ Premium Service Package

Backstage Pass

Big Changes Coming to RBN Backstage Pass in April 2023!

For nearly a decade, RBN Backstage Pass™ members have been able to tap into the RBN network and gain access to unique information, insights, and connections across energy markets. The premium service provides full access to our Daily Energy Blog digital library, Drill-Down Reports, Fundamentals Webcasts, our periodic Backstage Pass Get-Togethers, and more.

We strive to make each daily blogpost an insightful and engaging analysis of the most important topics in the energy industry, and we are excited to expand access for all our Backstage Pass members. Topping that list is early access to each new post in our Daily Energy Blog. Starting March 8, RBN’s free daily email will include links to two blogs: the free blog as usual, plus an “early-access” blog exclusively for all our Backstage Pass members — as a premium subscriber, you will now be able to read each blogpost a day earlier than everyone else! See more details about this and a list of all the new benefits below.

These enhancements will come with a modest price increase. But don’t panic! If you are an existing Backstage Pass member by April 10, 2023, you will be grandfathered in at your current subscription rate Additionally, if you are not yet a subscriber, you are in luck — you can get in on the lower rate of $90 per month by signing up before April 10th.

So, no price increase for existing subscribers or anyone who takes advantage of our ‘grandfathered’ pricing before April 10th. For all new subscribers after that day, the price will increase to $110 per month or $1,320 annually. To make sure you have access to our grandfathered pricing plus all our new features, sign up now!

Thanks again for your support, and we look forward to providing you with even more great energy market information in 2023.

New Backstage Pass Benefits

Early Access to Daily Blogs

As a Backstage Pass member, you’ll receive exclusive early access to our blogs. RBN is famous for our free daily blog — and for good reason. We strive to make it an insightful and engaging analysis of the most important topics in the energy industry. But wouldn’t it be great if you could receive and read the blog a day before everybody else? Well, now you can. Backstage Pass members will now have access to two blogs each business day: the current day’s free blog you’ve always gotten, plus the next day’s blog.

Blog Series Navigation

When there’s an important topic that can’t possibly fit into one blog, we make it a blog series. With our new series navigation feature — located at the top of any blog that is part of a series — you can easily jump to a specific topic within a blog series or start from the beginning and work up to the latest one. While everyone can see the series list, only our premium Backstage Pass subscribers will have full access to older blogs in these series groupings. 

Map Search Tool (New Updates Coming Soon!)

Backstage Pass subscribers can now search our RBN blogs specifically for oil, natural gas, NGL, refined products, and renewables pipeline maps. You may filter results by state, basin, or keyword. A list of maps matching your criteria will appear with access to a high-resolution image and link to the related blog.

You can dive into a specific topic or start from the beginning of a series based on what’s most important to you. Anyone can peruse the topics, but only our Backstage Pass members will have full access to the content within these .

RBN Top Hits Playlist – Our Most-Read Blogs of the Year (Coming Soon!)
