IHS Energy from IHS is the world's leading provider of upstream and midstream data for the oil and gas (O/G) industries. In conjunction with O/G data expertise, IHS Energy has standardized on Esri products and provides clients with GIS tools, technology, and services that support their data access, integration, and management needs, maximizing their investment in Esri GIS technology.

IHS Energy provides its data in a number of ways for users:

1. IHS Energy hosts data in an ArcIMS environment, allowing clients real-time access to the most current data available.

2. IHS Energy has created a number of commercial ArcSDE layers (spatial layers) from various databases that are available to subscribers for use with ArcGIS for Desktop.

IHS Energy has built a toolkit that leverages the power of ArcGIS by building, editing, and synchronizing ArcSDE layers from multiple commercial and proprietary sources. A key benefit of this toolkit is that when data refreshes in an ArcSDE layer, the layer itself does not have to be rebuilt, saving users a lot of time.
