IHS Inc. Provides Petroleum Engineering with $1.25 Million Software
Industry tool used for geological, engineering and petrophysical analysis.
Whitacre College of Engineering students at Texas Tech University will now have access to a powerful software tool for geological, engineering and petrophysical analysis, through IHS Petra® software valued at more than $1.25 million from IHS Inc., the leading source of critical information and insight.
“Many engineering and production companies, especially independents, use IHS Petra to conduct their geological and engineering analysis,” said Marshall Watson, chair of the Bob L. Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering. “Having basic knowledge of this software will give our undergraduate students a real competitive advantage in job placement.”
IHS Petra is a PC-based geological and engineering analysis software tool that is used by geoscientists and engineers to visualize, analyze and manage well production, well log, drilling, reservoir and other related information. This software also includes a database of more than 3.5 million current and historic well records from across the world.
