GPinfo: the definitive source for petroleum data

GPinfo is the acclaimed desktop data visualisation and manipulation software solution for companies working in the petroleum industry

It combines a comprehensive database of petroleum exploration information with a powerful and easy-to-use graphical interface for viewing and manipulating data.

GPinfo data

Data in this desktop data visualisation and manipulation software includes:
  • All current petroleum, sequestration and geothermal permits with attributes including participants and percentage ownership, operator, expiry date and work commitments
  • All petroleum and geothermal wells drilled in the region (over 20,000) with attributes including location, operator, spud and rig release dates, result and status
  • Full company information including details of parent/subsidiary relationships and contact information for offices and key personnel
  • Oil and gas field boundaries, pipeline routes, map sheets, coastlines, state and offshore boundaries, bathymetry and major towns

History dataset - optional module

pbEncom’s long involvement in the industry as a provider of petroleum exploration data has led to the development of the GPinfo History module. This provides permit geometry and detailed permit ownership information going back to when the service began in 1991.

Accessible via GPinfo’s intuitive graphical interface, users are able to perform the following operations:

  • Generate a complete display of permits as they existed at any month since 1991
  • Click on a permit from the historical dataset and show the participants in that permit and their interests
  • Create queries that select specific historical permits
  • Show a timeline of the history of a permit to reveal when ownership changes and partial relinquishments/extensions occurred

Subscription service

GPinfo desktop data visualization and manipulation software is offered as a subscription service with data updates issued monthly. Regular software updates are provided as part of the service.

Subscribers have a variety of installation options, ranging from a standalone license on a single PC to a fully export-enabled system with the complete history datasets running on a corporate network with an unlimited number of users.
