Renewed focus on domestic energy production in the United States is expected to spur significant growth in the industry.

And with continuous growth of Oklahoma-based companies in recent years, The Oklahoman has decided to expand its energy reporting to provide deeper and more insightful coverage of one of the state's largest industries, and has hired two more writers for the beat.

Adam Wilmoth, a former energy writer on the Business desk, returns as Energy Editor after working in public relations for the past four years. Wilmoth, 32, holds a master's degree in business administration from Oklahoma State University and a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Oklahoma. He's also a graduate of Leadership Oklahoma City's young professionals program, LOYAL — Linking Oklahoma City's Young Adult Leaders.

Paul Monies, 36, former database editor at The Oklahoman, has returned after a short stint with USA Today in the Washington, D.C., area. He graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas, and has a master's degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism.

Jay F. Marks, 38, has been covering Oklahoma news since graduating from Oklahoma State University in 1996. He worked in Sulphur and Enid before joining The Oklahoman in 2005 and has been handling the energy beat since 2009.

Marks and Wilmoth will focus on oil and natural gas issues while Monies will focus primarily on clean energy and utilities.

In addition to his reporting duties, which will include a weekly column, Wilmoth will be responsible for coordinating coverage with Marks and Monies and maintaining a new energy page, newsok.com/business/energy.
