What we do

EnergyIQ creates information certainty in an uncertain E&P world. Our customers grow business value, stay ahead of the competition, and protect capital. EnergyIQ’s Solutions maximize the value of information, grow trust and confidence in decision making, and lowers the cost of enterprise information.

When we started EnergyIQ we had one goal in mind—help E&P companies realize more value from huge volumes of information to increase the return from massive investments in exploration and production.

That meant helping companies organize the huge volumes of data they were acquiring; presenting information in ways the business consumes it; considering how collaborative processes drive data flows beyond a single function and across the entire asset team; systematizing standards and governance to improve data quality and integrity; and perhaps most important, providing methods for preserving and maturing proprietary data, making it a vital asset that drives a competitive edge and the bottom line.

We work as partners to bring certainty to your project, solution implementation, data and information requirement, and overall contribution to your business.  EnergyIQ is the solution!

Who We Are

The principals of EnergyIQ have over 20 years of domain and technical expertise in E&P data management. We have designed and built solutions for some of the largest and most complex E&P data stores in the world.
