Who We Are — Global Energy Software and Technical Services Provider

Founded in 1994, The Information Store, Inc., provides integrated products and services for the oil and gas industry focused on maximizing the value of data. Our solutions help our clients discover and maximize reserves and improve production by providing easy access to organized, high-quality data.

The Information Store was born out of an industry-wide effort to improve the way E&P data was managed and utilized. In 1994, a group of former participants from POSC (a not for profit organization with a mission to standardize the data model for the upstream sector) formed The Information Store, Inc.. They shared not only a common background rich in petroleum industry experiences, but had the technical know-how to implement practical and realistic solutions.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, The Information Store is a privately held company with worldwide operations, servicing clients in North America, Latin America, Australia, Africa, and the Middle East. The Information Store is under the direction and leadership of President and CEO Barry Irani. 


The Information Store's vision is to be a global software and technical services partner of choice for the energy industry.


Our mission is to create value by optimizing the availability, quality, and use of data in the petroleum industry. We achieve this by providing innovative, reliable, cost-effective software and world-class technical services.
