Austin TX-based Drillinginfo announced the formation of a new international oil and gas information service at the South East Asia Petroleum Exploration Society conference in Singapore this month. The new ‘DI International’ service is a joint venture between Drillinginfo and Nick Robinson, former founder and joint owner of Integrated Exploration & Development Services (IEDS) before its sale to IHS in 1998.
Drillinginfo CEO Allen Gilmer said, ‘This expansion of our information services is in response to demand from our 3,200 clients. As the domestic oil and gas business falls from favor in Washington, our members are asking for our coverage to include international E&P activities.’
Robinson added, ‘Drillinginfo redefined how oil and gas information and analyses are provided in the US. We are now leveraging its data and information systems to offer sourcing and delivery of international E&P data.’ Initial coverage will include Latin America and Southeast Asia, thanks to the recent acquisition of GeoSolutions Asia (GSA) in Singapore. GeoSolutions President Mark Harris will run DI International’s Southeast Asia operations.
