Combining geoscience expertise and big data knowledge.

Massive amounts and very expensive information are being gathered as part of the worlds energy exploration. Using our geoscience insight we have developed ways to turn unstructured and often forgotten information into valuable data and often new insights through innovative software solutions and consulting services.

Iraya Energies was founded in 2016 and has a presence in Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Singapore and Copenhagen.
