IHS Peps up web!

IHS Energy is providing international legal and fiscal information through a web-enabled version of its Petroleum Economics and Policy Solutions service.

IHS’ Petroleum Economics and Policy Solutions (PEPS) Service is now available on the Web. PEPS is a proven source of E&P statistical information and analysis of legal, fiscal, contractual and environmental terms, business environments and political risk.


Hitherto PEPS customers received quarterly data updates on CD-ROM. The new online service will give customers weekly updates and on-line PEPS customers will have access to the new E&P Costs Analysis module. An additional Discovery Economics module will be added to the Web version “real soon now”. The economics module lets PEPS users evaluate after-tax economics of any undeveloped oil or gas discovery in the world.


Graham Kellas, head of Economics Services at IHS Energy Group said “Our customers encouraged us to develop the online service so they could access PEPS and all the latest data from any location over the Web. The range of information and analysis covered in PEPS is invaluable to our customers, many of whom are negotiators and members of senior management who travel extensively.

Up to the minute

They depend on having up-to-the-minute analysis of the latest commercial terms, policy developments and risks. The new online service will complement our existing telephone and e-mail customer support efforts. This support is provided by a global team, which is comprised of petroleum economists, contract analysts, political risk analysts and other experts who have access to IHS Energy Group’s E&P database.”

Browser access

PEPS web access is through any standard Internet browser. No client software or data is required. For an online PEPS demo, visitors can access the IHS Energy Group Web site at www.ihsenergy.com/peps. Enter "pepsdemo" as both the I.D. and password.
