Short order turn around for IHS database

IHS Energy has sold on the PipesWest Canadian pipeline database it acquired last month.

Following its acquisition of Ensight Information Services last month (Oil ITJ Vol 9 N° 12), IHS Energy has divested the PipesWest database to Geomatics Data Management Inc. (GDM) of Calgary. Last month, PipesWest was going to ‘complement IHS’ software suite,’ this month it is going to GDM to create ‘the best Canadian pipeline database available.’


Chris Jones, president of IHS Energy (Canada) says ‘This deal will make a single, comprehensive source of Western Canadian pipeline data available through AccuMap. GDM has been a partner of IHS Energy for many years.’


GDM president Dave McLintock added, ‘We will combine PipesWest with our GDM file. The pipeline database will be exclusively available through IHS Energy’s industry leading applications, including AccuMap and the IHS Hub.’
