Kingdom Suite

IHS

IHS Kingdom creators of Kingdom Suite, an industry-standard 3D seismic and well log visualization and interpretation system. IHS has generously provided the Department with a license for this software, which is a powerful tool for our petroleum geology training program and our petroleum and tectonics research program.
