Roxar donates to petroleum institute

International oil and gas reservoir technology supplier Roxar has donated £18.2m worth of software to Heriot-Watt University’s Institute of Petroleum Engineering


International oil and gas reservoir technology supplier Roxar has donated £18.2m worth of oil exploration software to Heriot-Watt University’s Institute of Petroleum Engineering (IPE).



The reservoir modelling software will help the IPE in its research to help oil and gas companies extract the maximum possible product from each reservoir taking into account individual geological challenges.



In combination with the IPE’s existing computer hardware, the software will allow more realistic modelling of the naturally occurring geology of individual reservoirs and support the IPE’s work in maximising extraction on behalf of 10 major international oil companies.
