How our story developed

Petrosys has been a trusted brand in the E&P software industry since its inception in 1984, with a proud history and a strong reputation in oil & gas for revolutionary mapping, surface modeling, connectivity, and data management software products and services.

The Petrosys business has grown alongside and in partnership with our client’s diverse global use. Features such as Petrosys’ unique direct connectivity established us as pioneers and leaders in data integration from different GIS data sources and disciplines –  investments in development that continue to evolve with frequent releases.

Today, Petrosys, supported by our global team of industry experts in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe, and North America, is recognised as an iconic and trusted software and service provider to energy and resource companies.

Petrosys has a strong culture for client care and quality of service driven by a focused continual investment in technology R&D. Through the development and enhancement of our software coupled with complementary additions to the suite of products, staff, and expertise via acquisitions, we have proven that we are more than able to meet the evolving business needs of our industry and clients.

Below is a partial snapshot of this evolution over decades of continued investment and improvement based on client input.

In 1989, Encom Technology produced the first permits map beginning a 30+ year journey that developed into what we know today as the GPinfo Petroleum Permit Map, the definitive source for Australasian Petroleum exploration information.

Today, GPinfo is the leading desktop data visualisation and manipulation package for the Australasian petroleum industry, combining a comprehensive database of petroleum exploration information with an attractive and easy-to-use graphical interface for viewing and manipulating data.

In 2018 GPinfo was acquired by Vela Software Ltd and became part of the Petrosys family.

GLOBEClaritas™ software was initially developed in the mid-1980s as an in-house seismic processing tool for New Zealand DSIR – the Geophysics Division which evolved into GNS Science. It was subsequently established as a stand-alone entity and the software was successfully offered to commercial clients.

Today GLOBEClaritas is a globally-recognised seismic processing solution that is used in 30 countries by more than 90 organisations. We independently develop seismic data processing software that is used in acquisition, processing, and education for commercial clients, research programs, and universities.

GLOBEClaritas was acquired and became part of the Petrosys family in 2019.

In 2012 Interica was created by the fusion of two established and internationally recognised businesses, Enigma Data and InfoAsset.

Today, Interica is an industry-leading information service and software company with extensive specialist experience and knowledge of the oil and gas subsurface domain, the principles and practices of effective data management, and the practical requirements of companies, data owners, and data users.

In 2020 Interica was acquired to complement and extend the Petrosys family of data management solutions
