Resoptima donates subsurface uncertainty modelling software to University of Stavanger

OSLO, NORWAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2021: Resoptima has announced today the donation of 20 licenses of Resoptima´s ensemble-based technology ResX™ to support the academic program at University of Stavanger, Norway.

The donation will make it possible for students to use the most advanced ensemble technology while pursuing Master of Science or Doctorate degrees. Professors and lecturers will also be able to include the software in their teaching of integrated modelling courses. All licenses include the ResX 4D Seismic option.

Since launching ResX – the first commercial product to support ensemble-based modelling that simultaneously conditions static and dynamic data – Resoptima has delivered the software to the global Exploration and Production industry. It has helped solve apparently intractable reservoir development and production issues by fully managing uncertainties and providing industry professionals to tools to make the best decisions within their time and operational constraints. 

“We are very pleased to support the faculty and the students at University of Stavanger,” said Resoptima CEO Atila Mellilo, “it is vital that the upcoming generation of geoscientists and engineers be able to use the most advanced technologies during their studies, preparing them to enter the industry with full knowledge of modern uncertainty management tools and their role in decision-making for E&P activities”. 

“The University of Stavanger, Department of Energy Resources, is at the forefront of subsurface education and research, towards the energy transition.  As part of our portfolio, the Department is up to date with the utilization of a wide selection of modern software, “said Professor Alejandro Escalona Varela, Head of the Department, “The utilization of ResX in our study programs and research activities provides the opportunity for the students to work with advanced methods, enhance their knowledge, increase their cooperation and prepare them for the future with advanced technologies.”
