IHS Energy, through its Canadian unit, has acquired Calgary-based Ensight Information Services. Ensight supplies pipeline mapping, software and data solutions to the Canadian market and maintains the authoritative PipesWest database of Western Canadian high-pressure pipelines. Pipeline data is used by oil and gas companies and suppliers in environmental compliance and planning.
Chris Jones, IHS Energy (Canada) president said, ‘The acquisition of the PipesWest database, along with Ensight’s environmental and surface datasets and EGIS software, complements our suite of data and software products. The PipesWest database enhances the depth and breadth of our current pipeline offering with our existing pipeline data partner, GeoMatics Data Management (GDM). Over time we will integrate the EGIS software and the PipesWest database to create the industry’s premier pipeline offering; which will be accessible from the AccuMap desktop and on-line via the IHS Energy (Canada) Hub.’
